Designed by Antrepo Design Industry | Country: Turkey

“We love the minimal salt & pepper shaker design but we want some industrial touch in our life. Our new concept is for your dining table. These are the last members of “the I’m not product series” ( other part of series: TunerTime, Minutuner, TimeTuner. )

Created by Antrepo Design Industry as “Salt&Pepper Cell” and it is like a D size battery also the dimensions too. Material used is stainless steel and glass, the power indicators on the sides correlate to the amount of spices left in the shakers, before refill time. The color options are Red & Turquoise or Black & White.”

    I love these. Very nice. You have to wonder though, while they are really nice, who would actually buy them?

    I think they’re straight-up sweet. I’ll bite.

    I totally agree. I live in Thailand and not many people pay a little extra money for the well-designed things.
    They prefer the cheap and good ones.

    I love these, I’d spend on them, esp. if I had my own place. And I love Thailand too (:

    what font are “SALT” and “PEPPER” written in?

    Neil, I would buy them in a heartbeat! However, with salt being so unhealthy, maybe the designer should bring out an AAA version for the salt…

    I would definitely buy them, but I’m not sure if they’re actually available. Everywhere I look I have the get the same three pictures. Anybody else have any luck?

    I work for a graphic design firm and we would buy these for our kitchen for sure. Awesome design.

    Obviously only a concept, and they missed one crucial design element — pepper shakers typically have more holes than salt shakers. Otherwise, sure — great novelty.

    Absolutely Brilliant!

    Craig, I’m not great with distinguishing fonts, but I’m going to go off on a limb and guess Helvetica.

    They’re nice but isn’t the different color part usually on the + side ?

    You spelled “Dining” wrong – should probably change that before going into production.

    Put these on thinkgeek or similar and they’d fly off the shelf – definitely a geek-friendly design.

    If you look in the 1st pic where its packaged still they are only filled half way.They couldnt fill it up? And Im going to guess the price is ridiculous to boot.

    @24 (“Not Impressed”)

    They probably did that to show that on the side panel it DID show that… I know that had it not been partially filled like it shows, I personally might’ve overlooked that cute feature that I am only noticing because it wasn’t initially filled all the way. Besides, if you’re going to buy a salt and pepper set, it’s not like you’re going to throw away the shakers once they run out and go buy some new ones… you’d refill them once they’re emptied, and use them again and again until they’re broken or otherwise rendered useless (unless you want to be a wasteful restaurant/home).

    Great design, great product, shame about the clanger of a spelling mistake on the packaging though (‘Dinning table’ instead of ‘dining table’) so if anyone is going to buy, wait for the amended version ;)

    I think these would sell very well as gifts for people who know electricians. Great design and the packaging is good also.

    Thats my cousins Christmas present sorted out. Thanks.
