Designer Rachel Griffin’s ‘Fragment’ is a series of bowls and lids produced from offcuts from the natural stone industry where the original shape, color and texture of each stone segment determines the look and function of the result.

“The natural stone industry produces a large amount of waste, in the form of slurry, dust and larger offcuts.” says Griffin. “A portion of this waste is recycled for use in other industries, while the rest is transported to landfills at great expense. However, many such rough pieces have a beauty all their own and need not be discarded.”

Ranging in diameter from 75 to 250 mm, Fragment vessels offer a range of uses, from a vide-poche to a fruit bowl. Fragment made its debut at the third iteration of the 010-020 exhibition during Milan Design Week 2014.
