With unique equipment variety

The C · Flex system allows cigar shelves to be divided, drawers are used for aroma separation and the removable service board is made for perfect presentation. Your collection is set in scene by mood lighting possibilities.
The interior and all its elements are made exclusively from Spanish cedar wood. Opening the humidor the complex aroma of the wood seduced; the anticipation of a beautiful cigar increases. The color of the wood is beautiful, very variable and ranges from bright orange to reddish brown.
The original humidor wood
The interiors of our humidors are lined exclusively with Spanish cedar wood. Our experience confirms the conviction that from the Spanish cedar the best wood for interior fittings for high quality cigar cabinets is gained.
However, the trade name „Spanish cedar“ is slightly misleading, since the tree is neither a cedar nor a conifer. Botanically correct is the name Cedrela odorata for the species we use. The „fragrant cedro tree“ or English „Spanish Ceder“ is a relative of the real mahogany and it is a native deciduous trees in South America. The confusing naming is probably due to the growth habit and the external appearance of the tree, which were decisive for naming in earlier times.
The expensive Cedrela is often only used in demanding humidor construction, as the wood supports the cigars in their maturation and aroma development by their exclusive fragrance. The aroma spectrum of the Cedrela flatters the aromas of cigars and creates a unique and wonderful fragrance. An open Gerber humidor has a special fragrance thanks to the complete lining with Spanish cedar. The velvety fragrance increases the anticipation and the smoking pleasure is rounded off by a unique smell experience. The wood of the Cedrela can easily absorb the moisture present in the humidor and forms the natural basis for producing the constant humidity in the humidor’s inner cabinet. The stored cigars can mature over years and fully develop their taste. All of our humidors are equipped with Spanish Ceder inside, also the CigarArt.
Cigars need air
The removable Cigarboards of the CigarArts are adjustable and tiltable according to need and taste in position and height. Due to the individually displaceable supports on which the cigar boards rest, you have the opportunity to determine all distances yourself. Give larger boxes more space or decide to use more Cigarboards. The Cigarboards are made by hand and can be reordered.
A special highlight is the flexible inclination of the boards. You can decide on every single Cigarboard whether you want to tilt it or place it horizontally in the inside cabinet of your humidor. Design the interior of the CigarArts according to your wishes!
The lighting spreads atmosphere and moves with the Cigarboard, even if you move it. Whether horizontal or tilted, no matter what position in the inner cabinet. The concealed LED module moves with you and puts your cigar always perfectly in scene. The flexible Cigarboards have been specially developed for the storage of luxury cigars and cigar boxes. The perforated floor is an important prerequisite for the even distribution of humidity in the humidor, at the same time it forms the basis for the C · Flex system. The Cigarbords for the Humidor CigarArt are made of solid Cedrela.

Passion in itself is something that one must always wish to share with others and which also ought to be shared. So it behaves also with the enjoyment of a classy cigar. A cigar will like to be felt and smelled, shared and discusses with a good friend. With the removable Serviceboard you have the perfect item to display your select cigars. A warm and stylish atmosphere increases the pleasure each fine cigar. Present them to your customers or friends in a relaxed environment, in the Cigar-Lounge, or by a fireplace at home on genuine Spanish Ceder.

Our 100% Cedrela Serviceboard, with its unique Flex dividers for separation of flavors and varieties is a must-have for every passionate aficionado.
With system for the perfect presentation
The secret of our arrangement system is the combination of flexibility and the simple handling. The ventilation holes are the basis – each shelving uses the same holes – even at the Cigarboards, the drawers and for the Serviceboard. The boreholes are evenly drilled with an proved drilling scheme. For the smooth surface, they have been polished and after reworked by hand. They ensure two things: the air circulation and the possible usage of the C-Flex System across all sectors of the humidor.
The plug-in connections follows a simple but proven idea. Wood-to-wood and turned by hand the pins and planks made from Cedrela odorata doesn’t require any additional holder. The high quality standard of material and good workmanship is maintained. By reason of the different sizes of the elements the inner space can easily adjusted.
The varied dimensions of the cigars and his boxes are perfectly mapped in the system. You can separate the cigars after home country, variety, aroma – whichever you prefer. Cigar aging (for a longer period) enable to phases out bitter substances and ammonia. Following that the cigars are ready for the “Marriage of Cigars”. Some of our customers appreciate the new taste and aroma, if the Tabaco oil of different cigars will be mixed. If that is your idea, you can put your favored cigars with the same strength together in one space. But beware, not every cigar is suitable for cigar aging. Some of them loose there aroma and the flavor will less substantial. One rule of thumb: especially strong cigars and such ones that smells not satisfactory in a non-lit condition, can be suitable for cigar aging.

The eye-catching connections of metal and wood give the key its character. Timeless forms in particularly elaborate workmanship combine functionality and design.

Optimal conditions for the perfect enjoyment
Cigar connoisseurs know that constant humidity is what a humidor really needs. With our integrated electronic humidification and dehumidification system, your cigars can be optimally protected in the CigarArt. The relative humidity is measured by sensitive sensors and both too high and too low values can be compensated. If the humidity is too low, moisture is distributed evenly in the humidor with the aid of the humidifier until the setpoint set by you is reached. The CigarArt uses a high-precision cold evaporator with high humidifier performance.
A fresh air valve allows the fresh air supply to be controlled manually so that the cigars are always supplied with fresh air even if the humidor is rarely opened. The supply of fresh air promotes the aromas and the maturation process of cigars.
Cigars in the right light – for an atmospheric presentation
To design and install a beautiful lighting was a very important issue for us. We are following in the tradition of luxury furniture manufacturing. A piece of furniture should please the eye and enhance the environment. Classical timeless design, high-quality materials and indirect light are essential components. We combine two expectations towards the light: the illumination of the environment and the illumination of the cigars. Upon request, we can install and combine multiple lighting systems inside the humidor.
In case of the Gerber humidor CigarArt we have chosen a combination of background light and light for the shelves. At the background we use protected LED stripes for a long living light. The LED light needs only a little bit energy and is environment-friendly. The light for the shelves is invisible installed beneath the cigarboards. And the really clever part: the light moves together with the shelves. So you can change the position of the shelves and the light will follow.
Glass panels for impressivly insights
In addition to the large glass pane embedded in the door frame, one small glass pane per side can be inserted into the body. The two further glass panes optimize the presentation of the cigars and put the collection skilfully in scene.
The glass panels on the side emphasize the clear lines of the design. In combination with the warm glow of the cigar shades and the back wall lighting, the pleasing wood of the Spanish cedar gives a foretaste of the precious cigars inside the humidor. The symmetrical arrangement of the glass panes also harmonizes with the modern design possibilities of the CigarArts. A special highlight are glass panes, which are flush-mounted in the sides. These stand out from classic designs and underline the versatility of the Gerber humidor CigarArt.
