Ashtray_CT Table

Jeffrey A Day

Furniture Design Ashtray_CT Table by Jeffrey A Day In developing the Ashtray coffee table, the idea was to take some of our societies outmoded or benign products and give them a new life; to alter the “image” of how we interpret these shapes. The Ashtray shape for example carries with it a connotation of being unhealthy, smoking, a passing fad, and tobacco industry; conversely, in the past it was regarded that smoking was cool, hip, sophisticated etc… From those two competing ideas, the simple shape of a dished out square transforming into a circle has no assigned meaning. The interpretation is unique to each individual.
