The Retro Collection Shakers by Gense, designed by Pierre Forssell, were shown on the premiere of H55.  The Shakers attracted much attention for their genial form – a simple form in stainless steel with a black plastic foot.  The cone-shaped shakers for salt, pepper and sugar were described by the media with the words “the construction is so simple that it’s nearly embarrassing.”  Gense thereby set a new standard for functional design.
