rendering artists collaborate with tetra to envision dreamlike environments for smoking

design-driven accessories brand tetra reveals a series of atmospheric smoking rooms, the result of a collaboration with three rising digital rendering artists. each designer envisions their ideal room for smoking, taking inspiration by tetra’s line of glass pipes. the three artists — oscar piccolo, charlotte taylor, and andrés reisinger — are each known for generating contemporary interior spaces and still lifes. with tetra’s balance pipe, duo pipe, and nomad pipe as design precedent, each developed their fantasy space programmed for smoking and relaxation, with consideration for every aspect including the furniture, lighting, and color palette.



together with the three visionary designers, tetra reveals a series of surreal environments programmed for the use of smoking and relaxation.

charlotte taylor is based in both paris and london. while works as an interior and set designer, taylor catalogues her own dream-like renderings together with those of her contemporaries through her personal instagram and her inspiration account maison de sable. she elaborates on her smoking room designed in collaboration with tetra: ‘in my yellow room, the walls organically merge into the floor and the furniture expands from its surfaces, existing as one flowing space. the furnishings melting into the surroundings evoking a feeling of dissolving, the soft shapes and hues becoming one with the smoke, a limitless space to lose yourself in.’

london-based artist oscar piccolo is known for his sought-after collection of expressive and whimsical lighting fixtures in addition to his digital renderings and physical installations for fashion and home clients. piccolo comments on his glass-themed composition for tetra: ‘this space is a room for reflection — an intentionally scattered positioning of vases and other pieces I’d like to sit down and contemplate while smoking.’

based in barcelona, andrés reisinger is a multi-disciplinary designer who is known for his conceptual renderings, graphic design, product design, and surrealistic interiors. the artist has worked with such clients as cassina, nike, rimowa, and uniqlo. reisinger comments: ‘I like to be under the blue sky. I decided to create a room where you feel close to the outside — not only because of the windows in the walls and the openings in the ceilings, but also because of the cielo carpet that I designed especially for this room.’
