- Salt and pepper dispenser-

Duration

1 week

OVERVIEW

A salt and pepper dispenser that has solved the age-old problem of clumping. Its ergonomic design allows you to use it with ease and its colour-coded parts allow for easy distinguishing between salt and pepper. 

PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION

Traditional salt and pepper dispensers often clump up due to their reaction to atmospheric moisture. This creates a problem when you are trying to use it, but no product comes out. You then have to resort to other measures to get the salt out of the container, hindering your dining experience.

PROTOTYPING

I created a 1:1 scale working prototype by 3D printing the structure, then layering it with putty to give it a smooth finish. This was finished off by painting with a variety of spray paints to give it the texture I intended for my product to have.
