BOTTLE OF SPICES
Salt/pepper mill in blown glass
Although Nendo is known to work on four hundred projects at the same time, this is actually his first pepper and salt shaker. As always, the Japanese designer aimed to add a humorous twist to the design and with this object it is no different. The Nendo - bottle of spices pepper and salt shakers are actually round glass bottles with a ribbed bottom placed on a glass holder. The intention is to pick up the bottle, pour some spice into the holder, grind it with the ribbed bottom of the bottle and then pour the squashed pepper or salt on your meal. In other words,using the pepper or the salt becomes an almost absurd act of play. The object is transparent, a key element of Nendo's work. He wants you to look at your pepper like raindrops through a frosted window.
