Name: Salt and Pepper Box
Designer: Oscar Diaz
Location: London, England
Salt and Pepper Box is a minimalist design created by England-based designer Oscar Diaz. A reference to the key clock and musical box, the salt and pepper mill don’t need much explanation. They indicate their function through memory and association. The black key finish for pepper, the polished stainless steel for salt.
The mills are part of “Basic Objects”, a series of everyday objects re-thought as to avoid any narrative, making use instead of people’s cultural understanding of objects. The aim of the project is to create links with our unconscious knowledge of the physical world and use the collective memory as a starting point to design.
