Arielle Assouline-Lichten of Slash Objects is pretty dang impressive—not only did she get her masters in architecture from Harvard, but, while there, she and a fellow student also started a New York Times headline-making petition to try and get architect Denise Scott Brown retroactively awarded a 1991 prize that only named her husband. Somehow, Arielle also found time to spend a semester honing her design chops in Japan to lay the groundwork for her first business, a line of hyper-angular home goods like table mirrors and trivets that are equal parts futuristic and Old Hollywood.

But it was while she was working at her post-graduation day job, designing a residential high rise in Manhattan, that she stumbled upon a surprisingly swanky flooring material and everything clicked. As she remembers, “I had this pack of rubber samples sitting on my desk for months next to pieces of brass and marble, and it just all looked so beautiful next to each other.” Floored by the combo, she launched her first Slash Objects collection, made up of monolithic brass, cement, and rubber stools, blocky tabletop mirrors, and angular, speckled mouse pads, in 2016. And you heard it here first: It’s only a matter of time until her own prizes start rolling in.
