In collaboration with the Parisian artist Lison de Caunes the three-piece Humidor Collection in the traditional technique of Marqueterie de Paille.
It embodies Davidoff appreciation for materials ans for creativity, authenticity and luxury.
These masterpieces opens new dimensions for Davidoff and shows a craft that requires a high degree of precision, imagination and patience, and thus reflect the essential qualities of the Davidoff Accessories arts and crafts combined with technical competence for highest cigar enjoyment.
The three-piece new Davidoff Collection is inspired by the time cycles of nature. As the tobacco leaf for cigar, Lison de Caunes is from the outset the artistic director of this Humidor collection in the centre, from the choice of the shape on the design of the collection to the creation of pattern.
Also this unique Humidor shows a decisive moment in the life cycle of a Davidoff cigar. From the concept to completion it took Lison de Caunes 15 months to create the Humidor "Season II" with its unusual patterns. Cigars inspired, it remind the pattern of dry straw bundle. Lison de Caunes processed approximately 1,000 sun-dried straws and colored them in a specific color. Each of the selected straw is colored, open, flattened, glued and cut. In 15 months of work Lison ensures that the pieces are ready and beautifully prepared for its later owners.
