This Vesuvio public ashtray might not have many buyers in America, but there's plenty of cities overseas where smoking cigarettes is still a thing. The Vesuvio was designed with some thought towards the poor bastard who's gotta empty the thing out:
Product design/manufacturing firm Magnuson Group, who focuses on commercial and institutional products, makes them in several flavors: There's a freestanding unit…
…a don't-steal-me unit that bolts to the ground…
…and a wall-mounted unit.
Also looks pretty snazzy in black.
As weed legislation in the U.S. moves towards legalization, I do wonder if weed cigarettes will become a thing, and if we'll start seeing public ashtrays again in U.S. cities.
