Craighton Berman, a local industrial designer I met a couple of months ago after a presentation given by Josh Spear in Chicago, was just awarded an honorable mention at Design Within Reach's "Modern+Design+Function" Exhibition for Pinch, an eggshell white salt and pepper set. The design was inspired by a chef's salt cellar kept next to the stove top for easy access. Berman's design took it to the next level by incorporating a round pepper shaker (filled through a cork-enclosed hole in the bottom) that fits into the salt cellar, creating a natural cover to keep the salt from being exposed to the elements (or curious dirty fingers). While the set is in production development, there are limited quantities for sale. To inquire, shoot Berman an email. And tell him I say hi. If you like Pinch hit Fueled By Coffee, Craighton's blog where he muses mostly about design and music.
