The very nature of the "Hug Salt and Pepper Shaker" by Mint Inc. connotes brotherhood. The bold use of black and white suggests that we are all brothers and sisters on this planet and we need to treat each other with kindness, compassion and respect. The rethinking of a salt and pepper set on this level, as well as the clever geometric aspect of the design and the inherent ergonomic and storage benefits that it provides all contribute to the design's universal appeal.


Mint Inc. is a design collective founded by Alberto Mantilla, Anthony Baxter and Scott Henderson. The company was formed simply to create an outlet for creative ideas that are generated by the three founding designers in the course of their professional careers when a client commission may not be present. The Mint name was chosen because "mint" connotes freshness as in the literal sense of the mint plant, but also because it has industrial meanings, as in the place or source of manufacture and invention. Mint is "refreshing." Winner of the Industrial Excellence Awards (silver) and the Lapiz De Acero Design Contest (gold) 2003.
