- Kids' rooms often tread transitionary territory when it comes to modern design. What might be good for a five-month-old may not work well to when he or she is five years old.
In terms of designs for the kitchen, salt and pepper grinders and shakers always seem to catch our eye. This set by Norm Architects' Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Ronn for Menu is especially smart, with a ceramic body and wooden top. But it gets better: this grinder isn't limited to just salt and pepper. The designers made it extra strong to accommodate the adventurous chef. "We wanted to take a big step away from the predictable salt and pepper thinking and instead encourage people to experiment with spices, kernels, seeds and all the other modern kitchen ingredients," says Bjerre-Poulsen.
