Boogie Woogie Salt Shaker
Note: This product is no longer available.
Design by Murken-Hansen, 2009.
By Menu A/S.
The design company Menu has once again presented an innovative new product that will certainly be noticed at lunch and dinner tables with the Boogie Woogie Salt Shaker. In all honesty, salt shakers are not typically the most lively part of an otherwise well designed table setting, but the Boogie Woogie Salt Shaker has the potential to bring out smiles! With its heavy but stylish tumbler body and large white wheels, the Boogie Woogie Salt Shaker looks like a small, jaunty robot. It just requires a small push to roll across the table when somebody requests the salt.
The Boogie Woogie Salt Shaker can be filled with fine salt and has a matching partner that is designed for ground pepper. The salt shaker is made of anodized aluminum so that the surface maintains its attractive appearance and comes with a lid and wheels made of synthetic materials.
Menu has added wheels to the Boogie Woogie Salt Shaker so that it can roll over to the person next to you. The Boogie Woogie Salt Shaker is a wonderfully unconventional salt shaker on wheels that will certainly grab your attention and make the mood more festive. A Murken-Hansen design.
Material(s): Anodized aluminum, synthetic materials
Dimensions: 3.5" H
