Kitchen Accessories

Small Pestle and Mortar by Sagaform

This looks to be more of a sculpture than a mere kitchen accessory.

“Sagaform is a Swedish company that makes clean, well designed products that are good looking, practical and affordable. This clever small pestle (made from ceramic) and mortar allow for the even crushing of small amounts of spices…”

Newson dish doctor by Marc Newson

Kitchens with limited counterspace and no dishwashers could use a dishrack like this. The little pegs allow you to store lots of different plates, and provide more surface area unlike those metal drying racks.

Tea Towels, Third Drawer Down®: A Piece of Tea (2005)

A few people have emailed us about Third Drawer Down®, and pretty much the only reason there hasn’t been a post until now is because it’s difficult to choose just one to highlight. They have made common objects such as aprons, tea towels and kercheifs into usable art and I know there’s quite a few I would frame. Also, keep in mind these would be excellent gifts for anyone who has a kitchen (which is almost everyone).

“By placing art into the most domestic of circumstances, Third Drawer Down® products promote an ongoing dialogue between art and everyday life, whilst promoting the work of International Artists and Designers.”

Droplet (dropper)

Something like this makes me want to cook just so I could use it.

“This curious object is intended to be a soy sauce dropper, but would work well for other liquids in your gourmet pantry, like your fanciest olive oil. Fill with your liquid of choice, hold your finger over the hole in the dropper and lift – you control the drops with a little bit of physics. This elegant glassware will look beautiful on your dining table.”

Ming Oil & Vinegar Set

Quite a clever design:

“The Ming Oil & Vinegar Set from Dutch design firm Jansen + Co. takes the classic form of the wine glass and turns it on its head, literally. We love it, and not just because it’s clever – the stem reduces the flow just the right amount, so it’s easy to measure as you pour. Ships in a stylish box and includes a funnel for easy filling, plus a cleaning brush.”
