LAX BAR ashtrays

Christoph Meier, Ute Müller, Robert Schwarz & Lukas Stopczynski

Made as a collective effort by the artists and architects who met at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture in Los Angeles in 2015, the ashtrays come as a byproduct of their project: three different scaled iterations of the famous American Bar built by Adolf Loos in Vienna in 1908 and the Art Club housed in its basement in the 1950s. The bars were fully functioning bars, with a dense event program each night. Although “what happens in the bar, stays in the bar”, the ashtrays were made by melting down the empty aluminum beer cans collected from those long nights.
