I swear that I found these salt and pepper shakers yesterday before I did my versions, I really didn’t plan on posting two salt and pepper related things in a 24 hour period, that’s just the way things work. The little beauties you see above dubbed Carbon (because of their diamond shape, spluh) and were created by New York designer, Gregory Buntain. Greg is currently studying industrial design at Pratt, and based upon his already awesome looking portfolio, this guy has a bright future ahead of him.
I’m not really sure how you’d refill these shakers, I guess I should say how you’d fill them in the first place, maybe pop the top off, but they’re a beautiful design nonetheless. I could see these possibly slipping out of the hands of the elderly or poking a small child’s eye out, but that’s the price you pay for good design! Have a look at the rest of Greg’s portfolio as well, he’s got some rad stuff happening.
