These Sebastian Errazuriz 'Drowing in Debt' salt and pepper shakers are inspired by the economic struggles faced by debt-ridden citizens. The crystal-clear dispensers feature a trapped figurine looking helplessly through the glass walls.
When the shakers are filled to the brim, the figures remain concealed by the condiments. Once the seasoning is used, two sculptural Wall Street-esque workers emerge from the center. Designer Errazuriz says, "Like so many of us, these two humble workers have found themselves buried under an inescapable debt." The shakers are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also boast a thought-provoking message concerning the hardships of today's materialistic culture.
New York-based designer Sebastian Errazuriz is known for his artistic designs and public works that challenge citizens to observe and reflect on the choices they make in life.
