Salt & Pepper Shaker
Salt & Pepper are almost always used together, but not in the same amounts and not for every meal. Yet they have an endless love story at the dinner table. We wanted to used them together when we wanted to without taking away from the simplicity of traditional shakers... A simple solution for a straight forward need; Salt & Pepper please!
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A simple and clever shaker combining the 2 step process when
seasoning our food with salt and pepper into one easy step.
Without any mechanisms, a one handed operation...
Just turn, and use the other side.
Clever design of the inner housing allows dispensing one spice at a time.
Side dispensing, not top, means no mess & minimal spillage while refilling the shaker.
Shaped like an hour glass to encourage us to take our time and enjoy our meals.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
There are many shakers that combined salt and pepper.. but most incorporate a mechanism to release one spice versus the other.. we wanted to bring the simplicity of traditional shakers back to the table.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
March-April 2010 Amman Jordan
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Acrylic housing was selected
to showcase the interior design of
the cavity which prevents the spillage
of the secondary spice, while the first
one is being used. However these
shakers can also be manufactured in wood and ceramic.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Keeping the solution simple without the use of mechanisms.
