Florian Hauswirth of Swiss studio Postfossil has designed a set of salt and pepper mills that fit together.
Called Doublefacette, the objects are made of ceramic and cherry wood.

The project is an extension to Hauswirth's Doubleface tableware collection - see our previous story.
Here's some information from Postfossil:
Salt and pepper have to be on the table; together. The salt and pepper mills Doublefacette complement one another both in a functional and in a formal way.
Inspired by an outline, the forms, as the contents, are complementary. The inverted forms and the interplay of the materials lend attention to an object of utility an extraordinary haptic experience. Design reflects the use. According to the parsimonious way of using salt, the diameter of the salt mill is small. The pepper mill instead spins you twice.
Once spices were rare and precious goods, in particular salt, reserved only for rich people. Doublefacette accommodates history and tradition; proudly carrying its contents. Doublefacette is a figurative object of utility, it awaits either on the shelf or already on the table for serving us several times a day.
