Salt and Pepper Shaker Set
The process of shaking something inside the enclosed volume is very inspiring by itself: particles move inside depending on shape and movement of enclosure. The main volume determines all smaller movements inside as a director. So the idea is in bringing out the core of the natural shaking process, to understand what should be the boundary shape of enclosure to link all functions together providing a perfect expirience for user.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The aim of this design is to improve traditional process of using or salt/pepper or any spice jar simpler and smarter. The minimalistic shape of the jar is designed that simple shake movement directs spice particles along the internal surface right in is opening on the bottom. User dont have to turn the jar and each shake produces almost equal portions of spices allowing to dosage it.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Using is very simply provided by only making some movements over the dish. Each shaking movement make spices going from large volume into smaller and back down into a a tiny tube which goes outside the shaker. It filters and keep the most of spice particles inside except a fixed portion, which run outside by each shaking cycle.

During designing this product it was very important to find right shape fitting many ergonomics and mechanical requirements. The main volume for spices should be filled time to time with spices that is why shaker can contain a half of a whole space inside. This requires correct height of tube element inside: it ends at equal volume point, so when shaker is turning for filling it keeps all spices inside perfectly.
