Box Salt & Pepper Grinders
Oscar Diaz designed and fabricated these salt and pepper grinders for Hoi Polloi, a restaurant with music embedded in its DNA. Utilizing our collective muscle memory to turn a music box key, the functionality of these objects lie in the pleasurable task of using simple mechanics in our modern world.
These Salt and Pepper grinders were commissioned by Ace Hotel London Shoreditch as part of Ready Made Go 3, an exhibition curated by Modern Design Review magazine for London Design Festival.
Each sold separately.
