Spice Dice

Posted by tb4

Fun design by London based artist and designer Sebastian Bergne. The spice dice are the absolutely perfect gift for the craps player in your family, or Yahtzee player. Although I wouldn't necessarily play either with these dice, the spices inside may throw off the weight resulting in some unpredictable results. But just possibly the spices inside may align themselves just perfectly to give you great rolls every time. Obviously I'm kidding, but it is a great fun design that will add a bit of "Spice" to your kitchen, now that was bad. A little about the designer and a link to Sebastian's portfolio under that.

Born in 1966, Sebastian Bergne’s work is characterised by his approach more than by a formal signature. His projects are innovative but familiar, simple yet cleaver and always a pleasure to use.

He studied Industrial Design from 1985-88 at the Central School of Art and Design, London and then at the Royal College of Art, London, graduating in 1990 with distinction.

His London studio was established in 1990, with a second in Bologna (Italy) between 2000 and 2007. He collaborates with many internationally renowned manufacturers of consumer products and furniture. This work has been widely published, exhibited, included in permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art (New York) and the Design Museum (London) and honored with numerous international design awards.

Throughout his career, Sebastian Bergne has regularly contributed to graduate and postgraduate design education in respected institutions worldwide. In 2008 he was appointed visiting professor at the Royal College of Art (London).
