For more than 60 years the Peugeot brand has distinguished itself both in the automotive industry and in the manufacture of household mills and grinders. Drawing on this long tradition, the Peugeot Design Lab has redesigned these three mills and grinders. The designers have taken antique collector's mills and given them a modern twist with styling that uses new materials.
The concept salt and pepper mill
These two concept mills are distinguished not only unique in their, which is clearly inspired by Peugeot's signature lines, but also in the innovative way in which they are used. Traditionally held vertically, these mills are used in a horizontal position, where the receptacle enables the user to measure out the exact amount of salt or pepper. Combining aluminium and wood, the mills are further distinguished by their ceramic bases.
The concept herb grinder
In celebration of the legendary manual Peugeot coffee grinder, this concept herb grinder has been designed to grind all types of fresh herbs. At once functional and stylish, this compact grinder features a timeless and practical design. Operated by a handle connected to the cutting mechanism, this mill makes it possible to place freshly ground herbs directly inside the grinder.
The concept coffee grinder
Discover a new, updated version of the wall-mounted coffee grinder that was a traditional fixture in French cafés. The front handle can be used to grind the beans by hand. For a more speedy solution, simply press the button for an electric motor to take over. The upper part of the metal and wood grinder displays the coffee beans while also indicating the fill level.
