Condiment Set

Ettore Sottsass   Condiment Set 1978

Want to spice up your life? Add a vinaigrette to your salad? You just need this oil, vinegar, salt and pepper set and you’re good to go. Labelled ‘mini-architecture’, this high quality product with mirror polishing and crystal glass let the emphasis be on the good food that Italians are known for. The influential and inspiring Austrian-born Italian sculptor architect and designer created an object with a restrained form language, yet bold proportions and a rhythmic repetition of shapes and elements. In his quest to lead away from modernism, his object leaves center stage of a decorated table for plates and glasses and, of course, for the food and the people enjoying it.
