The Smaller Objects coasters are made in Finland from solid soapstone. What is especially appealing with soapstone is its unique heat permittivity; the ability to hold a temperature. So, placing the coasters in the freezer before use allows the stone time to accumulate a good chill – keeping any glass placed on them colder for a longer period of time.
“Chilled drinks on a cold soapstone coaster hold their chill longer than drinks placed on a coaster at room temperature. With our coasters beneath, you can enjoy that cold drink on a hot summer evening for just a little bit longer,” says Ola Rune.
Set of 4. Dishwasher safe. As a natural material, the appearance of each coaster varies.

Smaller Objects was established by internationally acclaimed architects Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune in 2015.
The product range consists of useful design objects for the home, in materials such as wool, ceramics, wood and steel.
“As with everything we are involved in, we believe in the longterm perspective. Hopefully we will be able to inspire people to choose well-designed everyday objects that will be cherished until they’re passed on or inherited”, the trio says.
The range of objects will evolve over time.
