Twist-X / Salt and pepper shakers

Twist-X
Twist-X

The “Twist-X” is a salt and pepper shaker joined together in a cross form based on the principle of the “cross lock”. To use it, simply twist the cross, and the shakers will separate easily. Users may fill the shakers with condiments according to their own preference, by opening the soft plug in the middle of each shaker. This design resurrects the ancient wisdom of the Chinese people, and brings them to the dining table. In addition to the cultural significance, Twist-X will also give users a brand new idea regarding condiment holders. The metallic appearance and pithy design demonstrate the harmonious fusion of ancient and modern wisdom.
