Renowned French heritage design house, S.T. Dupont, known for their unique ability to combine skilled craftsmanship with innovative modern design techniques, has brought the ultimate luxury electronic lighter to the market.
Reigniting the love for the Slim 7, created two years ago back in 2016, S.T. Dupont has now launched the E-Slim. The same slim 9mm size, this stunning lighter contains no gas, no flint and no striker.
Designed using techniques unique to S.T. Dupont, and famed by the brand, the lighter comes in three beautiful finishes – sheer white, smooth chrome and lustrous black. The lighter is making its debut into the technological age with a flow of elemental electrons, instead of a cloud of fire. Inside the E-slim, a high-capacity battery, as easily rechargeable as a phone or laptop, energises an incandescent filament: a spark of electricity taking the place of the naked flame.
A short-travel trigger ignites the spark, celebrating the classic blend of traditional design and technology that has always characterised S.T. Dupont. The company is famed for using techniques that are unique to the brand, such as the application of natural lacquer – the recipe which is known by only three artisans in the world – to its collection of writing instruments and lighters and diamond powder tanning, to its soft luxury luggage.
S.T. Dupont was founded in Paris in 1872 by Simon Tissot, an ambitious and creative photographer from Napoleon III, who was enamoured by the Parisian high society’s desire to travel and this inspired him to design a collection of unique trunks, cases and luggage which soon became “must have” products of the discerning Parisian traveller. Over the years, the French brand has built a remarkable following from stylish cultural icons such as Coco Chanel, Jackie Kennedy and Picasso to Hollywood heavyweights including Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe.
The E-Slim is revolutionary in design for the thinnest luxury lighter in the world, whose powerful torch flame is able to withstand the most violent of winds.
