Rock Garden’ soap set and tray

Pelle and ER Butler & Co


Inspired by the Japanese rock gardens of Isamu Noguchi, Pelle’s topographic brass dish – expertly crafted by ER Butler & Co – has rising fins that gently cradle each soap while allowing them to dry quickly.


Soon after forming in 2011, the firm, run by husband-and-wife team Oliver and Jean Pelle, made waves with a range of faceted, gem-like soaps. Handmade at their Red Hook premises, the glycerine Soap Stones, as the line was called, quickly became a mainstay of museum shops and design boutiques alike.
