Boir Portable Saltworks

Croatian design studio Boir have created a portable saltworks that lets users harvest their own natural sea salt at home. Through this unique product, you can witness and experience the moment of salt harvesting, applying the T-shaped tool reminiscent of those used by traditional sea salt harvesters. The set features an elegant case that comes in oak or walnut with oil finishing, a ceramic vessel inside that is coated with a waterproof enamel to enable the optimal salt crystallization, a bottle of Nin 28 Be (concentrated Adriatic sea water), and a hand-polished inox T-shaped tool. All the materials are safe for alimentary use. Simply pour a thin layer of bottled brine, expose it to sunlight for an hour or heat it up in the oven. When the crystal pattern appears, it is ready to be harvested with the special metal T-shaped tool.
