- Salt and pepper dispenser-
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.
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.

User Research, Concept generation, 3d Modelling, Rendering, Prototyping
A survey was conducted to understand the problems faced by the users and also if there are any additional features they would like to be added.
A list of requirements was created based on my insights from my primary and secondary research.
- Clumping of content should be eliminated
- Grip for holding
- Avoid spillage
- Easy distinguishing
Using brainstorming method, i was able to generate a number of possible solutions for the design brief
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.
