Designed by the efficiency artists at Joseph Joseph, this curious white orb with a bright green limb jutting to one side is something of a modern sculpture. In reality, it’s a seriously sophisticated kitchen accessory—the Mortar and Pestle. Unlike others of its kind, this one has two grinding surfaces: a larger base mortar and the lid, which works well for fine herbs and spices. The ergonomic pestle fits comfortably in your hand, looks good as you grind, and gets the job done. Mojitos, anyone?
