Meet the Maker Arielle Assouline-Lichten of Slash Objects in Brooklyn, New York. On the top shelf in her Brooklyn studio, sits a copy of the book Design of Dissent which sums up the deepest passions for Arielle.
She holds a Master of Architecture from Harvard University, and worked for internationally renowned design firms BIG, Kengo Kuma and Snøhetta, in Copenhagen, Paris, Tokyo and New York before founding Slash Objects.
Slash Objects is rooted in a fascination with materials and how they are brought together. Using unexpected juxtapositions and thoughtful design, the studio strives to create beautiful pieces with impact.
Slash Objects works in many scales of design, from digital to physical, in a wide range of projects from spaces to experiences. Arielle has been published in Metropolis Magazine, The New York Times, The New Yorker and Architectural Record among others, for her design work and activism. In 2019 Slash Objects was the recipient of the American Design Honors.
Slash Objects makes coasters, trivets, placemats, storage bins, baskets, vanity mirrors and nesting trays out of post-consumer rubber (that means old, used car tires). They truly are common objects designed for the non-conformist in your life. These essentials say as much about your social conscience as they do about your matchless style.
Welcome to Slash Objects!
