At Art Basel Miami, which opened today, Davidoff showed off the conclusion to its Cave de Paille humidor collection, Saison III.
The humidors are done in collaboration with French artist Lison de Caunes who is known for her use of straw. Each of the three humidors in the sires has been made using as much 1,000 individual pieces of straw. Saison I was green and invoked the growing stage of tobacco leaves, Saison II was brown, paying homage to the cigars wrapper and Saison III uses straws tinted in grey and black color to symbolize the ash.
The inside of the humidors are lined in okumé wood, which is noted for its odor neutrality.
Like the rest of the series, the humidor measures 16 5/8 inches x 10 1/3 inches x 6 1/3 inches. Davidoff says it will hold between 50-65 cigars.
Suggested retail pricing is $23,350, which includes a one-year membership to Davidoff’s Hourglass Lounge concierge service, a $3,250 value.
A total of 20 Saison III humidors will be made.
Oettinger Davidoff AG, the parent of the Davidoff brand, is an associate partner at Art Basel. Each of the three Cave de Paille humidors have debuted at an Art Basel show. Saison I was shown off at Hong Kong, Saison II at Art Basel in Basel and now Saison III in Miami.
