attempting to change the way users interact with salt and pepper shakers, designer jaemin jaeminlee has introduced ‘sogum huchuhuchu’ – ceramic kitchenware that eases the fear of over-seasoning. similar to the shape of a spoon, the device allows users to preview their salt and pepper portion in a small bowl-shape before adding it to their meal. if there is any thing left in the void, one can vertically shake the leftovers back into the storage space inside the grip.

  • Organic & sits beautifully in the hand. 3D-abstract & functional. Kudos to Jaemin. I’d like to know where he studied or is he just over the moon brilliant?
    Contact Quirky Design for fast production-that is if they can handle the product shape-located in USA.
    Good luck.
