Carl Auböck

Brass Painted Ashtray


The Auböck family has manufactured this patinated brass ashtray since its design in the 1940s by Carl Auböck II, a leading figure in Modernist design. Successive generations still work out of the Vienna atelier, casting brass in original moulds and hand-working each piece to a satisfying finish. Please note, as this piece is made and finished by hand, slight markings and imperfections may occur. These only add to its unique character.

Carl Auböck

After years at the forefront of the Bauhaus and Wiener Werkstätte traditions, Carl IV still works in the same atelier with the original brass moulds. He has modernised the hand-worked desk sets with input from designers like Michael Anastassiades, yet the handmade ethos remains.
