Samantha Oriegien Swaby & Roman Gonitel - An Unusual Combination

When an artist (Samantha Oriegien Swaby) and a scientist (Roman Gonitel) collaborate interesting things occur...

Slow Stone is an art furniture start-up born in London and made in Italy, revolving around the

complexities of stone.

In 2018, the scientist Roman Gonitel proposed an idea to the artist and designer Samantha Oriegien

Swaby. He was curious as to how the design process could be flipped, instead of just designing a

piece to incorporate a particular marble or stone, one could take time to see what the natural

patterns occurring in the stone could dictate and evoke from the artist/designer.

Samantha was intrigued by Roman’s proposal and so the journey began and as a result Slow Stone

was born.

Tables, lamps and furniture arise from the interpretation of a methodically chosen slab of marble

where the design is dictated from the reading of its veins and inclusions.
