该项目是为比利时的家具和家居饰品品牌 Valerie Objects的“胡椒和盐调料罐”项目研发的一个胡椒研磨器。

A pepper mill created for “the pepper & salt project” by Valerie Objects, furniture and home accessories manufacturer based in Belgium.

通常情况下,胡椒研磨器是有自己的特定形式的——干燥的胡椒粒通过研磨器的顶部被塞入研磨器内部,然后通过旋转装置或者杠杆原理,利用研磨器内部的刀刃将胡椒粒研磨至细小颗粒状或粉状。

Pepper mills are typically formatted so dried peppercorns are inserted through the top, and then ground with internal blades by either a rotating mechanism or using the power of the lever.

然而,为了实现更精细的研磨,并最大限度地激发胡椒特有的香气,本产品使用了简单的研钵和碾杵装置。这种装置自古以来就被世界各地的药剂师、科学家和厨师广泛使用,相比于通常的研磨器,我们认为研钵和碾杵更适合这个项目的要求。本胡椒研磨器由一个玻璃底座和其上一个装满了胡椒粒的圆形玻璃瓶组成。使用时,将胡椒粒从玻璃瓶中倒至玻璃底座上。这时,玻璃罐的底部就充当着碾杵,底座充当着研钵,便于手动研磨胡椒。圆形玻璃瓶瓶身的中央部分略微凹进,以方便抓握,且瓶底比其余部分稍厚,从而提高了装置的稳固性和强度。底座上表面与圆形玻璃瓶底部的脊线经过严格的测试,相互嵌合,有助于胡椒粒的研磨。

However, to enable a finer grinding and to bring out the aromatic qualities, the simple method of a “mortar” and “pestle” was utilized. This device, that was used since ancient times by pharmacists, scientists, and chefs all over the world, was more suited to the project than the typical approach. The object consists of a round glass container filled with pepper that sits on top of a base made from the same material. When used, the dried peppercorns are poured out of the container to the top of the base. The bottom of the container is then used as a “pestle” and its base is used as the “mortar” in order to ground the pepper manually. The container, with its slightly indented central section, is easy to grip, and has a bottom that is thicker than the rest of the body, improving its strength. The ridges on the top surface of the base and underside of the container are a result of rigorous testing to make for an easy pepper grinding.

本胡椒研磨器将在于2019年1月18日在巴黎举行的国际室内装饰品展览会Maison & Objet上进行展出。

This product will be shown at Maison & Objet 2019, an international interior goods/decoration trade show taking place in Paris from January 18.
