Functionality meets Scandinavian design

Design by JI Christoffersen

The Salt Penguin is a registered Danish quality salt grinder.

Made from walnut, ash and maple and fitted with a Danish-patented Hulstrom Salt Grinder.

The design piece was first produced by J.I. Christoffersen in mid-2006. Functionality, the irreplaceable qualities of salt, the freezing oceans, and Tonn–P’s Pepper Bird were the elements that inspired J.I. Christoffersen to create the Salt Penguin.

Place on the shelf to admire, or use everyday in the kitchen or for special dinner party occasions.

Interior design lovers and appreciators of fine craftsmanship adore the Salt Penguin.
