Salt and pepper are a natural part of every meal. With the new salt and pepper grinders "Black-n-White" from Stelton's "explore" series, you do not need to bother yourself with putting the grinders away at the end of a meal. The set is a beautiful, graphic double sculpture with functional ceramic grinders.
The Salt Mill in soft white is twisted in a slight spiral that instinctively invites the hand to continue a twisting movement to give the meal "A Twist of Taste".
Shaped in matte, soft plastic, designer Jakob Wagner wanted the grinders to "function as a beautiful design object divided into two, that you wish to put on display in your home".
Material(s): ABS plastic with a ceramic mill
Dimensions: H 6.3" W 2"
Designer: Jakob Wagner
Jakob Wagner was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1963 and received his first design degree in his home town. After attending several international schools he graduated from the Art Center in Montreux, Switzerland, with a degree in product design in 1992.
He immediately set up his own studio in Copenhagen and for the first 5 years of his career he worked with sports and professional equipment for clients such as Porsche and Pioneer. Though, gradually he gained interest in objects for the home. On his design philosophy, Jakob says: "I often try to create a kind of balanced tension between opposite qualities in the object. I play with static versus dynamic expression, symmetry versus asymmetry, masculine versus feminine, organic versus geometric, etc. This challenges our senses, makes an object come alive and touches us emotionally."
In 2003, he was awarded The Danish Arts Foundation Three-Year honorable Bursary. Jakob's work is often part of exhibitions in Scandinavia and around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, where he had his first object included in the permanent collection in 2006. In autumn 2008, Jakob won the award as Denmark's "Best Designer" by one of the leading interior magazines.View other products by Jakob Wagner
Stelton was founded in Denmark, 1960 with humble beginnings selling steel hollowware. When administrative director Peter Holmblad established a cooperation with the leading Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen in 1964 they saught to create a true line of tableware where correlation of design between the individual items would always ensure harmonious table settings. The result was the now famous Cylinda-Line which was launched in 1967 and immediately attracted considerable attention for its serene and functionalist design. The company rapidly grew in Denmark and worldwide due to the success of Cylinda-Line.
Today, Stelton offers five different design-lines with products from more than 20 top-designers and thereby represents once again one of the most innovative and front-running companies of its kind.
