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 worlds have merged...

 

 

Bloc Studios x Tableau: A basic collaboration

The creative encounter of Bloc Studios and Tableau is not a coincidence. Indeed, if one is known for having reinterpreted the marble with an edge over his competitors, the other is no less well known, with a number of innovative projects to his credit, where poetry and the floral universe are often the order of the day.

 

Bloc Studios has made the most of marble, a material that has been forgotten for a few decades and then returned to the forefront in a flash. With their simple ideas and pure forms, a whole family of materials and preconceived ideas about them have changed. From an obsolete and heavy material, the studio was among those who succeeded in giving it a completely new image, that of modernity, even avant-garde. We remember in particular 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.

Magical 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 better than a clean design that works? While bold pieces are undoubtedly impressive, one element, or in this case two basic elements that look easy to combine 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 to nature, and metal represents man. But both are part of the same whole and complement each other perfectly.
