We've seen several kitchen accessories designed with the human anatomy in mind, but Sentient Kitchen by Christine Chin kicks this theme up a few notches in the bizarre department. Each design features a hyperrealistic depiction of a body part. The toelike Shuttling Shakers above, for example, are meant to be mobile for convenience; the Nostril Mill below stores peppercorns in a sinus cavity and disperses it via a sneeze.
Thankfully, the accessories in the Sentient Kitchen collection aren't for sale, but they're compelling nevertheless. As Christine Chin says in her artist statement, "While it is the nature of the human ego to cast suspicion on a challenge to human intellect, Sentient Kitchen products offer a non-threatening environment to explore the benefits of smarter, more sensitive solutions to our daily dining needs."
