Smoking cigarettes are not supposed to make you look cool, but these items by Fornasetti definitely do. As part of an exhibition titled Sublime Tobacco, running from February 14 to March 30, the Fornasetti Store in Milan, Italy will be displaying a series of smoking accessories from the 1950s and '60s by the late designer Piero Fornasetti. Although the man himself was not a smoker, he created a variety of items such as cigarette cases, table lighters, humidors, and ashtrays featuring attractive patterns, graphics, and decor. His largest series of works involves 592 designs placed on simple rectangular ashtrays, and 244 different looks for a round ashtray.
