Kuhn Rikon Mortar & Pestle- 05.05.09
This beautiful Kuhn Rikon Mortar & Pestle showed up amidst the kitchen construction ~ and it is STUNNING! Also, swiss made, designed by Swiss Designer/Chef Philipp Beyeler, multipurpose and made of porcelain and bamboo! Not only does the porcelain bowl (for grinding) fit beautifully into the bamboo base (for crushing nuts and harder foods) ~ but i’m just such a sucker for porcelain/woody-bamboo combinations! And on brilliant details… the tear drop shaped hole in the handle isn’t merely for aesthetic purposes, it also doubles as a tool for “defoliating stems”.
See the many pics of the beautiful details up close on the next page!
