Centre piece and condiment container
It’s a condiment container, which becomes a centerpiece or a candle holder. The various dishes we consume call for many different condiments, which will dictate how our centerpiece comes together, depending on the condiments needed. Each cube is equipped with magnets that fix it to the upper and bottom ones and the base is the only noncubic form. It can hold toothpicks or flowers or even candles and can vary in height and color according to what is inserted. It can be used at home or restaurant.
At the base of the project is the observed user experience and lifestyles that change. Everyone’s tastes have evolved and we all like to personalize our dishes. The salad is an indication of this: green, mixed, Caesar, tuna, greek, gourmet, avocado and so on. They all require specific condiments, spices, sauces to be added and those can take up space and create chaos on the table. Saladice is a practical way to organize everything and enrich table and salad alike.
Technology and materials
The containers are in pressed transparent plastic. The base and handle are in pressed aluminum. The magnets have a 6kg max attractive power and the caps are pressed or made of aluminum.
It’s all very simple: I choose the dish and compose the condiment holder. I then bring it all to the table and use the condiments by removing the cubes needed and then put them back. At the restaurant, it’s already on the table ready to use and makes a nice decorative element and can be a candle holder or flower pot. Saladice colors and decorates the table with a minimal effort. It gives maximum flexibility of use and can be divided into multiple elements to create nice colorful decorations.
