Bloc Studios x Tableau: Less is more in 10 vases

If you're a fan of the plain and pure and the often-true principle that simplicity is often right, the vase series lately designed by Bloc Studios x Tableau will not let you down. Discover an exclusive collection, born from the meeting of two studios whose brutalist and minimalist universes have merged...

 

 

Bloc Studios x Tableau: A basic collaboration

The creative encounter of Bloc Studios and Tableau is no accident. Indeed, if one is known for having been able to reinterpret the marble with a head start on its competitors, the other is no less well known, with a good number of innovative projects to its credit, where poetry and the floral universe are often in evidence.

 

Bloc Studios has been able to get the best out of marble, a material that was forgotten for a few decades, then returned to the forefront in a flash. With their simple ideas and clean lines, a whole family of materials and preconceived ideas about them have changed. Of an obsolete and heavy material, the studio was one of those who succeeded in giving it a brand new image, that of modernity, even of the avant-garde. One remembers their magical collaboration with the photographer Carl Kleiner resulting in a series of unique and delicate vases, modest pedestals with incredible flowers...

 

On the side of Tableau, flowers have always been of paramount importance. In their innovative material combinations, a plant element is always part of them, in a sense opposing the hardness of innovation to the lightness of a flower. Also an art gallery, Tableau likes to exhibit various artists and designers in its premises, whose creations always have as a guideline a real passion for craftsmanship at the service of the beauty of our time.

Magic brutalism

The series consists of 10 Vases, each unit being made from a single rough block of marble and a metal container, in unique pieces. The beauty of each of them comes from the studios' careful choice of each marble for its color, but also from the fact that the two parts of each vase are assembled naturally, without binders or fixings. This is pure brutalism and effectiveness.

 

And what could be more enjoyable than a clean design that works? If the daring pieces are undeniably impressive, one element, or in this case two elementary elements whose combination seems easy when perfectly chosen, are all the more sensational. Less is more is a principle of truth that applies particularly well to the field of creation, where eccentricity has its place, but where honest beauty, almost stripped of any surprise, is even more so.

 

This is how the collaboration between Bloc Studios and Tableau celebrates natural creation and brutalism, the ability to love each material for what it has to offer, without artifice, and to know how to enhance it. Here, marble calls nature, and metal represents man. But they are both part of the same whole and complement each other perfectly.
