L'Artéfact is an object inspired by the Parisian hobby of sitting en terrasse to study the movements of pedestrians, their interactions, and attire. A piece of hardware designed to elevate the daily ritual of cleansing. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, brasseries became popular gathering places for artists, writers, intellectuals, and other members of Parisian high society. These establishments offered an ideal setting for people-watching, as patrons could sit for hours sipping coffee or wine while observing the comings and goings of the city’s diverse inhabitants. Beyond their practical function, these iconic silver ashtrays also had cultural and symbolic significance in Paris. They were often considered as a status symbol and a decorative accessory.

Absolutely adore L’Artéfact. Its current use is as a centrepiece on our coffee table, an occasional jewellery dish and a gorgeous talking point.
Will love it forever.
