I am 99% sure this ashtray, as well as the JOPE FAMILY jugs, the JIM desktray and the ROSA SIMPLE bowl, were designed for Häberli as a group commission from Driade and all of them date back from 1997.

This is another Ricard-reminding ashtray. The shape is a funny one, but any smoker would be thankful for the big surface for cigarette holding.

The colour is as nice, or even nicer, as the blue used for its VIS À VIS brothers. I also like the thickness of the melamine walls...

If you manage to get more than one you can see the MORE OR LESS are also stackable, so one can play with the shape and create some sculptural forms with them.

    Thanks Bellin! As I had got two of these, one of them was my first present to Carlos... he loved it!
