The RIVSALT product range is designed by Swedish entrepreneur and designer Jens Sandringer. Jens came up with the concept while dining at a Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant in Beijing, where the master chef grated salt over the dishes using a large grater and big salt rock. A unique experience which sparked the initial product idea complementing the rise of Scandinavian foodie and design trends. The original RIVSALT product was launched in Sweden in 2013.
Born from a large number of prototypes, first in cardboard then in wood and metal, initial design thoughts were all about creating a dining table centerpiece. Consequently, size and product simplicity were the two most important elements in the process. Beautiful, so that it would stay on the dining table as a design object, simple enough so that folks immediately would understand, talk about it and finally enjoy testing the gastronomic experience.
