Out of This World

Add a pinch of retro flair to your kitchen table with these delightful little rockets inspired by science fiction's hey-day in the 1950s.

Handmade in the Philippines from Natural and Blonde acacia wood, with Stainless steel rocket fins. Designed by Richard and Vicki Kung for the Museum of Robots.

Made in

Designers Vicki and Richard Kung are inspired by all things robotic and sci-fi. This focus on sleek, smooth lines and giving their pieces a futuristic feel lead to the metallic, interchangeable pieces comprising the Modular Candlestick Set and the out-of-this-word qualities in many of their designs.

The worlds of si-fi and design collide in Museum of Robots, the couple's homage to metallic mechanisms, where a love of robots, technology and product design combine in functional products for the home.

It's no surprise the duo is designing pieces fit for the future. Richard has been collecting robots for 25 years and Vicki is a lifelong sci-fi fan who got her first robot at age 6.

According to Richard and Vicki, "All our products are inspired by robots, which to us are the essence of modern and nostalgic, futuristic and retro, technical and playful, functional and entertaining, and perfectly represent our vision."

Museum of Robots is located in the suitably sci-fi, online world of Second Life. The Museum hosts digital exhibits dedicated to the appreciation of robots, whether historical, cinematic or literary.

    Comments about Rocket Salt and Pepper Shakers:

    I thought that one shaker would be smaller than the other, but they are both the same size. I don't know if I like them better the way I thought they were, or the way they really are. Regardless, they are too kewl! Very substantial pieces.

        Comments about Rocket Salt and Pepper Shakers:

        There was a little trouble unscrewing the caps because the construction is heavy-duty metal and the threads are quite large. However, they are very fun to use, the spices shake out quite easily, and it's easy to distinguish between salt and pepper because of the color difference between the shakers. These shakers will be around a loooooong time.
