When I was last at MoMA, I enjoyed browsing the store after making the rounds in the galleries. I made an impulse purchase and picked up these guys:
The package label says “Salvador and Pablo, Salt and Pepper Cellars,” made by OMM Design with the images created by Ingela P. Arrhenius, who I learned is a freelance illustrator based in Stockholm, Sweden. I thought it would be fun to have these playful salt and pepper shakers to use during meals, so I bought them. They are made with porcelain, so they have a nice, solid feel to them.
A little more on the artist, since I’m just learning about her myself, after making this purchase: Ingela Peterson Arrhenius was born in Holland in 1967, and studied advertising and graphic design in Stockholm. In 1992, Arrhenius started her own business as a freelance illustrator working on an international level with advertising, design, publishing and editorial work. Her work has included print patterns for fabrics, wallpaper, and stationery as well as packaging, product design, home accessories, toys, and children’s books. I can’t find a personal website for her, but her Instagram account can be seen here.
If you’re interested in these artistic salt and pepper shakers for yourself, you can find them at the MoMA store here.
