About Us

Founded in 2015, Tetra is a retail shop and accessories brand offering beautifully designed smoking objects for aesthetically minded people. During the mid-century period, design luminaries such as Dieter Rams, Marianne Brandt, and Enzo Mari created iconic smoking accessories for the home. Tetra seeks to revive that tradition of beautiful and useful objects in a contemporary way, celebrating the new rituals of smoking through a lens of great design.

Tetra specializes in smoking objects like pipes, ashtrays, storage jars, and lighters, as well as unique home fragrances, rare vintage finds, and other accoutrements. In addition to offering the work of other brands in its online retail shop, Tetra manufactures its own line of pipes and accessories, designed exclusively for us by prominent up-and-coming talents such as Yield, Jamie Wolfond, and Knauf and Brown.

Tetra views smoking as an opportunity to sit down, relax, and be present — an antidote to the harried, tech-obsessed pace of modern life. We invite you to breathe deeply, disconnect, and enjoy the pleasure of company and conversation.


Tetra's founders are Monica Khemsurov and Eviana Hartman. Graphic identity and website by Studio AH—HA.
