FRAGILE Salt & Pepper Set

I try to use the word “amazing” as sparingly as possible, but the idea behind these FRAGILE Salt & Pepper Shakers are truly such. The basic idea is that this ceramic salt shaker comes as one connected piece, but must be broken in order to experience its utility. Now, you get an entirely psychological experience accompanied with the use of a food product. I’m intrigued…

Studio Kahn, the incredible minds behind this product, ask some intriguing questions in their product description. “When was the last time you emphatically broke something?” As a result of this product, the experience of “breaking” something as an impulsive outburst is an act that serves to build, rather than destroy. “In a world of products whose shape is completely dictated by the designer, we enable the user to complete the design himself,” with this in mind, each shaker is one-of-a-kind, completely dependent on the end user’s style and unique ability to break the product.

This FRAGILE Salt & Pepper Shaker is now available at ETSY for $35. Might have to pick up a few and alleviate my aggression, and uniqueness in one fell swoop!
