Stockholm 2012: Swedish designers Form Us With Love presented vases comprising slabs of quartz compound slotted onto a metal frame in Stockholm last week.

The Silestone Slab Vases were created for Spanish brand Cosentino to show off their Silestone material, normally used for kitchen and bathroom surfaces.

The vases can be reconfigured and made waterproof by the addition of a plastic insert.

The designers presented five new collaborations at their annual Form Use With Friends showcase, this time at Swedish Museum of Architecture, including the Bento chair we've already featured.

Here are some more details from Form Us With Love:


Silestone Slab Vases

Form Us With Love and Cosentino present a project exploring the quartz surface Silestone. Silestone Slab Vases were showed at the exhibition Form Us With Friends at the Swedish Museum of Architecture during Stockholm Design Week. The project aims to break away from the familiar Silestone slab form and explore the material’s tactile dimension.

The Slab Vases consist of rings of Silestone, which have been slipped over a metal bracket to create a sculptural vase. The rings vary in size and are cut so the shape of the vase changes with each assembly. The material is of Iberian origin, but Scandinavian sensibilities run through the Slab Vases project.

    These might just be the only vases I would ever buy, since they're so re-arrangeable and silestone comes in so many colors!!! Also, I would really love to make things out of the fallouts from these circles, they're cute :) Who does the manufacturing?

    which would be cool if you didnt have to put in a plastic insert to make them functional….
