Salt Pepper

Sottsass Mills

These various mills remind me a little of a vintage building block set, which could be good or bad depending upon your preference.

Throughout the 80s and 90s, Sottsass Associati was the core design studio for Alessi’s range of wooden products. The grinder series revisits classic wood-turning patterns.
