Introducing the Hug Tray by Kouros Maghsoudi. Pulling inspiration from New York hedonism, the Hug Tray is unapologetically tinged with liberation, opulence, and self-indulgence. The ashtray is a ceramic piece with a complex electroplating process, creating a unique finish. We encourage you to use the Hug Tray to bring Kouros’s fantasy into your home. Enjoy the iconic handmade object as an evening ashtray, jewelry catcher, throw tray, party plate, or any other way you choose.

About Kouros Maghsoudi

Kouros Maghsoudi, a self-taught multidisciplinary artist and designer, has always been immersed in the world of design. Born in the Frank Lloyd Wright suburbs of Chicago to parents who owned a boutique women's clothing store and Persian rug galleries, Kouros's upbringing instilled a deep appreciation for aesthetics and craftsmanship. After earning a degree in sustainable architecture and urban design and working with an environmental nonprofit, he launched his own furniture collection, Mehmooni, which draws inspiration from his Persian culture while infusing playful postmodern motifs that encourage indulgence. A self-taught multidisciplinary artist and designer, Kouros's approach is steeped in an investigation of future cultures, gathering cues from fashion and metropolitanism. Kouros's creative design is unapologetically tinged with sex, liberation, opulence, and self-indulgence.
