Davidoff unveils a newly designed VIP hospitality lounge in the Collectors Lounge at Art Basel.
The new space highlights the Davidoff Art Initiative‘s global programming and artists. The centerpiece of the new lounge is a digital screen featuring interactive images from the Davidoff Art Initiative’s growing global network. An Instagram feed of pictures generated by artists and organizations linked to the Davidoff Art Initiative provides a window into the programme, which since its inception, in 2012, has worked closely with contemporary artists across the Caribbean region, linking them to artists and art organisations around the world. The Davidoff Lounge, in addition, features photographs by Polibio Díaz, the most recent Dominican artist to participate in the Davidoff Art Residency programme at the International Studio and Curatorial Programme (ISCP) in Brooklyn, New York, in the fall of 2014.
The Basel-based manufacturer of premium cigars also unveils the second edition of its Humidor Collection, a new custom humidor series designed by Paris-based artist Lison de Caunes. Crafted with the traditional technique of marqueterie de paille (straw marquetry), this new humidor collection showcases Davidoff’s respect for materials and its dedication to creativity, authenticity, and luxury.
