The mini Spitz is a shorter, more compact version of the original Spitz grinder, which is inspired by the mountainous landscape of Gamper's home region of Merano, Italy. They are crafted from walnut and ash with a lightly varnished finish which highlights the natural grain of the wood. Each piece is made in the UK and sold separately.
We know Martino through the London-based design collective Åbäke – he co-founded publishing house Dent-De-Leone with Åbäke members Kajsa Ståhl and Maki Suzuki. For us, his work is like walking down a side street in a town in northern Italy, going from one trattoria to another. He contributed to one of our earliest cookbooks, and is world-renowned for his love of ginger.
