Davidoff Cigars will be unveiling the recently commissioned Limited Art Edition, Nature Reimagined by Rodell Warner, at Art Basel in Basel, on June 15-18, 2017. The new Limited Art Edition comes in a high-end cigar box and features one of five unique artworks created by artist Rodell Warner. Warner was given the freedom to create an entirely new body of work that highlights his artistic strengths and also Davidoff’s commitment to excellence in its handcrafted, luxury products.
“We quickly learned that what we wanted to discover and community is what connects the cigars and the art,” said Warner. “What goes into the production is what we care about–with both the cigars and the images. We realized that we are designing experiences that are sought out for the pleasure they give, and that we take pleasure in giving only our best.”
The Davidoff Limited Art Edition 2017 is inspired by photographs of the Caribbean islands. Warner created a collage of patterns and turned it into a digital three-dimensional object. He then saved images of the digital 3D object viewed from various angles and used these images like puzzle pieces to build the final artwork. Five of his exclusive creations that nature these unique artworks will be released as part of the 1,000 numbered cigar boxes.
The Davidoff Limited Art Edition 2017 comes in a premium white lacquered box that features a removable magnetic lid that collectors can use as a frame to display the exclusive artwork. Each box will also contain 10 Davidoff Toro cigars.
