The inspiration for Cave de Paille began with the growing plant in Saison 1 and then moved through to the cigar wrapper in Saison 2. The cycle is now completed with the cigar and its ash in Saison 3. At the heart of this piece are creation and reward, the time to craft and the time to enjoy. Saison 3 marks the transformation of tobacco and straw into ash. This mineral is the very element nurturing young plants to start a new cycle. Subtle colour tones from charcoal to intense black are balanced and interlaced in straw. This fluid and hypnotic result is particularly difficult to achieve in marquetry. Davidoff and Lison de Caunes created this piece to be an iconic feature, lending a unique ambience to any environment where the cigar ritual unfolds and time is spent beautifully.
