Scott Henderson is known for his ability to transform the mundane. He believes that if something makes you smile it becomes easier to use. With over 50 patents in the U.S. and Europe for projects as diverse as housewares and home accessories to consumer medical products, electronics, even aircraft - his work has been widely recognized in exhibitions, awards programs and in the press. For Scott, design is not a discussion of form versus function; it's about thinking and the quality of the big idea. Scott Henderson's work is included in the permanent collections of The Brooklyn Museum, the Chicago Athenaeum and Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum/Smithsonian Institution.The Mint "Salad Song" is a set of high quality porcelain vinegar and oil cruets. The geometry of the pure cylindrical vessel is sliced and bent in one direction, forming a pour spout for the liquid inside. The visual interest of this pure geometric idea is enhanced by the singing metaphor that is created simultaneously. When viewed as a set, these vinegar and oil cruets sing to us and bridge a gap between our emotions and an appreciation of minimalism.
