Hermes salt and pepper, anyone? Peddy Mergui’s rebranded grocery products

Peddy Mergui has created a fun series of everyday objects with luxury packaging to explore ‘the dynamic and often blurred ethical boundaries of design within consumer culture. The exhibition is meant to highlight the challenges a designer faces when tasked with promoting economic interests while remaining true to his or her own moral compass’.

The packaging also highlights ‘both the contentious, potentially arbitrary connection that products have to packaging’. How do you feel about it? Mergui is certainly commenting on global consumer culture and asking us to question our next purchase.
