An ingenious creation by award-winning designer Karim Rashid, the two hourglass-shaped Hug shakers actually fit together in a sweet embrace.
This allows you to carry the pair to the table as a single unit, and when someone says, "Please pass the salt and pepper," you can easily grasp the Nambé metal duo at its waist. Of course, the two pieces function singly, with a differing number of holes on top and black and white plastic plugs underneath for identification. Dinner guests are sure to exclaim over this unique design, just as Hug will lift your spirits from everyday use.
For our new Baby Nambé Collection, we turned to renowned designer Sean O'Hara, whose love of fluid forms reveals itself in a series of classic gift pieces that cater as much to parents' aesthetics as baby's needs. This three-piece set of implements serves both little diners and their parents during the period when toddlers transition from needing adult assistance at mealtimes to feeding themselves.
Forged of lustrous, durable 18/10 stainless steel, the set comprises fork and spoon with looped handles for a toddler to grasp securely, and a feeding spoon with long, slender handle and narrow tear-drop-shaped head just right for an adult to maneuver into a tiny mouth on the opposite side of a high-chair. The implements are polished to a long-lasting mirror-finish shine and are dishwasher safe. An excellent gift choice for baby's Christening, or to otherwise celebrate a new arrival.
Designer Sean O'Hara emphasizes the glowing warmth of acacia wood by accenting this 14-inch-diameter cheese tray with a granite cutting surface and accompanying the tray with a lustrous 9-inch stainless-steel knife. Shaped in a double curve for beauty and utility, the knife fits comfortably in the hand and has a pointed tip for impaling cheese slices so they can be easily transferred to crackers or plates. The tray's swooping rim, inspired by a butterfly, rises to 2.5 inches high.
Acacia, a dense, durable hardwood, features finely patterned grain of varying shades and, being naturally resinous, will not absorb stains or odors. The tray and granite cutting surface can be hand washed with warm soapy water. Forged of durable, rust-resistant 18/10 stainless steel, the knife is dishwasher-safe.
