Will product designers ever stop finding inspiration in the simple shape of an egg? The smooth, rounded shape of the Form trio of kitchen tools owes its existence to a photograph of an egg admired by designer Charles Job. The set consists of an egg timer, an egg slicer and a salt and pepper set that snap together. Each tool is available in your choice of sleek black or white plastic. "Boil an egg; slice it and eat it with salt and pepper--that is the essence of Form," says the product Web site.
To take the theme a little further, why not enjoy your salt-and-pepper sliced eggs on an egg-inspired table? We saw this one, with a lazy-susan yolk, in the portfolio of Italian architect Valentina Audrito. The table was part of an eggs-hibition (sorry, I couldn't help myself) outside the Milan Furniture Fair in 2006, which also included the whimsical sunny-side up shag rug. Egg-cellent!
