“Spezerei” is a family of spice grinders that breaks away from the dogma of turned traditional models. The set consists of a salt and pepper mill, a nutmeg grinder, and a salt box. Deliberately additive and architectural, these everyday objects do not immediately reveal what they are. These small sculptures arouse curiosity and invite you to touch and explore them. Since they don’t look like kitchen utensils at first glance, they also cut a fine figure on the dining table.

The original “Spezerei” family is available in fine domestic hardwoods such as walnut, oak, and ash. The salt and pepper mills are equipped with Danish ceramic grinders by CrushGrind and the nutmeg mills with Swiss quality grinders by Strässler. For the London Design Festival, KIM + HEEP created a special edition with a dystopian feel. The studio brushed oak and stained it black to give it a weathered look, which is smooth touch.

Charred and tough survivors of the apocalypse, they herald in a new beginning.

About the designer


Hi, we are Mia and Niko, founders of KIM+HEEP, makers of beautiful spaces and things. We focus on the human experience and celebrate everyday life! We specialize in great custom-tailored environments and products of high emotional value, no matter the scale. Projects range from commissioned product and interior design to conceptual installations, research, publications and teaching. Coming from an international background we understand that people -and companies- are diverse. This variety demands individual solutions. We examine the positive potentials of cultural globalization by mutual, fearless inspiration and recombination. Being a product designer and an architect, we have been realising projects in both fields since 2005. What we find most interesting is exactly the potential between the disciplines! We describe our working method as PingPong. An exchange of ideas, thought experiments, pipe dreams, sketches, and prototypes. We are the translators of hopes, needs, and wishes.

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
