Personal salt castor cruet created by Peter Zumthor proposes a completely new approach to this typology, surprising us once again with his formal rigor and linguistic effectiveness. The faceted volumes immediately bring to mind the shapes and forms of the elements we have in nature such as crystals, stalagmites, stalactites. The result is a collection of six glass containers with silver plated steel covers, whose design demonstrates a successful balance between form, function and quality.
