Description: The "Artemide" ashtray is a work that represents the excellence of Italian design, with a silhouette that harmoniously balances form and function. This object is a testament to the vibrant and innovative period of mid-century Italian design.

Emma Gismondi Schweinberger, the creative mind behind this design, is a leading figure in the Italian design scene, known for her approach that intertwines technology and form in every creation. His collaboration with Artemide gave life to pieces that have marked the history of design, still sought after today for their timeless beauty and impeccable functionality.

Artemide, founded in 1960 by Ernesto Gismondi and Sergio Mazza, is an icon of lighting design that places the human being at the center of the scene. Known for its philosophy of "The Human Light", Artemide has distinguished itself by creating lighting solutions that improve the quality of life in inhabited spaces. Lamps such as the Tizio and the Tolomeo have become design icons and are exhibited in museum collections around the world. Their research continues in technological innovation and sustainable design, always aiming for a symbiosis between light, space and individual.

The "Artemide" ashtray, designed by Gismondi Schweinberger, embodies this philosophy through its timeless design, offering not only a functional object but also a piece of Italian design history.
