A simple and practical 3-piece set.A soysauce, salt and pepper set from 1977. The set has a simple design and it is easy to handle. The set gathers together the condiments that are often scattered around the table. The soy-sauce can has a "trunk of an elephant" spout so it does not cause drips. Salt and pepper shakers' holes are not on the top in order to avoid dust getting in. Instead of soy-sauce, the can could also be used for oil. It is hard to believe that these objects were created 30 years ago. Their design looks very fresh and they go nicely together with western tableware. Good Design prize in 1977Long Life prize in 1993
