Slash Objects launched in 2016 with an inaugural line of objects unified by the use of appropriated materials to create beautiful juxtapositions. Simple and geometric forms define the bounds wherein new connections are made.
The Slash Objects line integrates the use of an industrial material made of 100% post consumer recycled rubber. By pairing rubber with brass, marble and concrete, the collection imagines new ways for materials to come together.
Founded in 2013, Slash Projects is a multidisciplinary firm bridging physical and virtual spaces. Working from architecture and product design to digital, web, and app, the firm explores design as an experience through varied mediums.
Slash Objects was invited to design a custom piece with Norway based designer Thomas Jenkins, for a special exhibition during design week called Norway x New York. The light has a cast concrete base with pivoting brass disc, and received acclaim from T Magazine of the New York Times, and Dezeen among others.
