This is the second set that Ricard designed in melamine and steel. As a design I think it's much better than OSLO, even if he dearts from the simplest shapes to create these amazing items. Now I think I should have taken a second picture showing them from their profiles... you'd understand the amazing work he did here.

At some point the ashtrays (and lighters) designed for Flamagás became very fashionable company presents, so you can find them with logos stamped or engraved on their surfaces. In this case mine are marked with the names and logos of two different Catalan companies.

I remember having seen another PRESIDNT ashtray made in garnett colour melamine. I guess the matching lighter would have garnett plastic too.
