Elbphilharmonie Salt and Pepper Shakers
A tribute to Hamburg.
The Designer Steve McGugan tells us the following about the salt and pepper shakers: “Whenever I stop in from Copenhagen and visit Hamburg, the world’s gateway, I’m fascinated by the development taking place on the philharmonie’s construction site at the Elbe river. I find the design simply beautiful and quite poetic. That’s when the idea hit me to create a product as a tribute to this wonderful example of architecture, that also reminds one of everyday life."
The shakers themselves, observed individually, remind one of modern sculpture - arrange them together on their tray and they suddenly create a miniature excitingly similar to the Elbphilharmonie with its wavy roof top.
