2021. An age of reckoning, confronted with our past failures where the ‘Armageddon’ predictions are now a stark reality. We believe that it was human ingenuity that got us into this mess, and it will be human ingenuity that gets us out of it. We need radical change, but where will change come from? and who can lead the way?

Today we are talking about FOREVER® with Arielle Assouline-Lichten, Founder of Slash Objects. An award-winning design studio based in New York, their work is rooted in a fascination with materials and how they are brought together. Using unexpected juxtapositions and thoughtful design, creating beautiful pieces that transform the way people experience the world. Their process begins in the material, with an interest in exposing the very tactile nature of making, while creating pure forms bound together by geometry and precision. The materials they use are recycled and long-lasting, breathing new life cycles into materials otherwise relegated to waste.

My work at Slash is to question what materials we value in society and to reassign them new meanings through the power of visual culture.

I like to think of the forms in complete contrast to the materials themselves in order to hyper-accentuate the man-madeness of the objects.

As entrepreneurs and business owners we need to stand up and lead the new revolution.

Slash is about working towards greater mastery of reclaiming waste in the aim that society follows suit.

I imagine a future where we won’t have enough refuse to work with because products will be produced so thoughtfully.

Design and culture will be the stewards of change.
