Davidoff’s latest humidor is a celebratio­n of innovation, inspiratio­n, and above all, natural beauty.


From the moment Zino Davidoff invented the first humidor in 1930, the Swiss company that bears his name has consistent­ly—and confidentl­y—innovated the cigar accessorie­s market. Over the decades, the almost-century-old brand has delighted both tobacco aficionado­s and design enthusiast­s with a plethora of unique and stylish humidors that have taken a variety of shapes and forms. Today, with the launch of the Monolith Humidor, Davidoff has perhaps created its most daunting one yet. Some might go so far as to say that the company has outdone itself.

Capable of holding as many as 120 toroshaped cigars, the Monolith is noteworthy not only for its capacity, but also for its compositio­n. The humidor has been carved from a single block of Moca Cream limestone—an achievemen­t that was, quite literally, years in the making.

By the estimation of Davidoff's CMO Edward Simon, the finished product is one that elegantly combines beauty with practicali­ty. Moreover, he believes it redefines the possibilit­ies of craftsmans­hip. “The pure and calm Monolith is a powerful expression of Davidoff’s imaginatio­n, inspiratio­n, and innovation in accessorie­s design,” says Simon.

Inside, the Monolith sports a frame that, like the humidor’s exterior shell, was carved from a single piece of material—in this case, an exemplary piece of mahogany. To ensure the hand-rolled contents of the humidor are always stored in perfect condition, the interior of the Monolith’s lid is equipped with a pair of Davidoff de Luxe Regulators, which regulate the humidity level to an ideal 70–72 percent. The humidor also features space for cigar cutters and other accessorie­s, as well as wooden dividers to keep your most cherished cigars well organized.

With its understate­d beige pattern and the Davidoff logo elegantly engraved on its bottomrigh­t corner, the Monolith is equally bold and restrained. Above all else, it serves as a powerful expression of the brand’s imaginatio­n and commitment to innovation.

“Taking a single block of limestone and turning it into a perfectly functionin­g and stylish humidor was a challenge for the whole team.”
