The Original Hug Salt and Pepper Shakers by Mint
The very nature of the "Hug Salt and Pepper Shaker" connotes brotherhood. The bold use of black and white suggests that we are all brothers and sisters on this planet and we need to treat each other with kindness, compassion and respect. The rethinking of a salt and pepper set on this level, as well the clever geometric aspect of the design and the inherent ergonomic and storage benefits that it provides all contribute to the design's universal appeal. <mintnyc.com>hug

Indigestible Plate by Rafael Morgan
This plate looks like an ordinary plate, in fact it is just a regular plate.Until you put some hot food in it. The inside of the plate is printed with undeniable, provocative, bitter and indigestible sentences about hunger statistics in the world. The sentences are printed using heat sensitive ink, so they will only be revealed when someone put some hot or warm food in it.<www.rafaelmorgan.net>
