The Humming Bird Salad Dressing Set is an expressive and elegant example of biomimcry in industrial design. This elaborate object features three delicate reservoirs that are intended to hold a variety of sauces and oils with which you can flavor your meals.

The transparent glass bowls flare and blossom broadly into flower-like forms. They are hooked through the leaf-like metal stand so that they all hang at different heights for a more organic arrangement. To access the contents of these vessels are eye droppers that have been shaped to resemble hummingbirds. They're complete with pinchable bulbs in bright colors and long and narrow pipettes that point and curve like beaks. Clive Bullivant's Humming Bird Salad Dressing Set dispenses oils with the deliberate precision of one drop at a time.
