DesignK creates a straw-like design for pepper and salt shakers. These shakers are so simple yet so attractive, you could simply stick them in a glass when you’re not using them. They are inspired by bendy drinking straws and add a little pizzazz to your kitchen decor.

I love that they add a diner-like feel to a table arrangement by storing them in a glass with a knife and fork folded in a plaid napkin. They’re a cute and they are a fun way to season your food and demonstrate how typical household objects can be transformed and given another function. For example, it’s interesting how straws used to perform one function only and now perform as seasoning applicators. The long and curved shape of the pepper and salt straw shakers give you more control and a more accurate measurement of seasoning. Finally, no more over salting!
