- The Kipling humidor is a table with a secret compartment inspired by the treasure hunts of my childhood. When I was small, I took great delight in hiding my toys everywhere, around and in the house, in the attic or the garden, and then carefully making little treasure maps to find them later with my friends. Inspired as well by the old American TV series like The Wild Wild West in which inventions with implausible mechanisms were the theme of each episode, and series such as The Little Rascals and Here Come the Double Deckers most certainly had a subconscious part in the creation of this cigar table.
-The Kipling can contain up to 150 cigars stored in compartments designed to hold the main formats available on the market. (see interior layout)-In the centre, a matt black trapdoor with a heavy, chrome-plated brass handle in the middle opens on two runners to reveal your humidor. 30-mm solid wood.
-The wood used for the inner lining is Okoumé, an African species with qualities equivalent to those of Spanish cedar. 20-mm solid wood. (Note that nowadays true Spanish cedar is a protected species from Central America. Use of this designation, which is unfortunately not monitored, is obsolete and often false.
Many humidors are indeed made from cedar, but from China (Chinese cedar) which is passed off as Spanish cedar. For all of our pieces, we have used Okoumé for ecological and environmental reasons.)
-The exterior wood is a walnut veneer spray lacquered with a gloss varnish finish. 30-mm thick.
-The piece is supported by a polished stainless steel frame with four square bases (80 x 80).
-The humidor is equipped with a top-end electronic humidification system: the 'CigarSpa', well known for its reliability and its ease of use.

Carbone option :
For lovers of sportier and more modern materials, I offer the option of covering your humidor in real carbon fibre. In recent years, carbon has been gaining followers in design and decoration circles in addition to its primary use in engineering. This option applies to IZAMBAR humidors and any that you already own. Quote on request, depending on your requirements.
Skin option :
For those that love beautiful patinas, there is the workmanship of a craft that is now rare in France, that of leather or skin covering. I offer the option of covering your humidor with the finest skins and leathers available on the market: calf, kid, sheep, exotic skins (crocodile, lizard, ostrich, snake, fish), lamb, nubuck, and more. This option applies to IZAMBAR humidors and any that you already own. Quote on request, depending on your requirements.

This option only concerns the colour and finish for the lacquered MDF humidors. Based on samples or pantone/RAL references, we can produce the colour you require with a gloss, satin or ultra-matt finish. This option applies to IZAMBAR humidors only. Quote on request, depending on your requirements.
Engraving option : Personalise your humidor with laser engraving. With this option we can create, together, a theme based on your life, a coat of arms for your name, a photo ... anything is possible. This option comprises the creation of a 2D model, and the engraving on the outside or inside of your humidor. This option applies to IZAMBAR humidors and any that you already own. Quote on request, depending on your requirements.
Art option :
For those who conceive that art and cigars do not dissociate, this option offers the possibility to appeal to painters, graphic designers or artists to perform a unique artistic work in your humidor. This option is applicable only for IZAMBAR cellars. Estimate on request, the next project, according to the artists.
