Alessi Grind Salt and Pepper Grinder
A celebration of the dining table and all those tools that enhance the pleasure of sharing and enjoying good food: this was the design concept for the “Grind” salt, pepper and spice mill by William Alsop and Federico Grazzini. Not simply a gadget for the table where meals are eaten, but an object that is part of an essential experience.
The designers have also introduced a small variation in the usual structure of this tool: when the Pepper mill is not being used, it sits with the grinding mechanism facing upward.
The grinder is thus clearly on display, stylishly framed by the distinctive design of the body of the Salt mill. It is a functionally important detail as, after use, it allows “Grind” to be set down on the table without scattering any ground spice residue on the table.
