For award winning high-end distillery Stählemühle, three objects were designed as part of a bespoke collection of accessories. The refined ashtray from black Belgian marble with cigar rest in solid brass, superior pen tray in solid brass and subtle fruit bowl in European walnut are distinguished by their pure use of material, simplicity and function. In their design and shape the pieces are extruded bodies, emphasising their sculptural and object character. All three pieces feature embedded on their underside finest black core leather. Other pieces in the bespoke collection of accessories also include special edition objects by designer Saskia Diez and artist Mark Braun.
The client Stählemühle commissioned the conversion of an old mill estate into a high quality distillery for award winning liquors. Making up a total of 143 sqm, the conversion comprised the distillery, the degustation and tasting space on the estate. The design puts specified traditional materials in a modern context while the main focus is on the creation of a presentation and sales area for the distillery’s products. Exposed concrete walls and raw asphalt flooring were specified to contrast the polished finish of the distillery machine. The glass containers of the liquors act as lenses, magnifying the texture of the exposed concrete walls. All specified furniture was supplied by e15, with key items being custom-made for this project.
