Kyoto, pepper shakers like test tubes
It is fashionable for things to look like what they are not, bathrooms look like kitchens and kitchens like laboratories. The new minimalist cut utensils that steadily move away from traditional shapes contribute to all this confusion. Before, the salt shakers seemed like it from miles away, we saw one from afar and we ran towards it wanting seasoning.
But now we must be careful, since we can get confused if we let ourselves be guided only by that traditional intuition. To show a button, or rather a test tube, which is what Kyoto looks like, this set of salt and pepper. The only thing that saves them from confusion is that they are not made of glass, but of black and white porcelain.
They seem somewhat unstable to me, since they necessarily rest on the cork stopper that covers the end through which they are filled, and given their height it is possible that they are firm candidates for various accidents, with fatal spillage of salt included. They are a prototype designed by Sébastien Maleville.
