Borgersrud’s Shake series comprises a salt, pepper and sugar shaker designed to resemble pebbles or meditation stones. With surfaces built from layers of soft colour and varying texture, and scratched with lines that invite tactility, the objects are designed to nurture a sense of meditative calm when held.
