18 / Furnishing Utopia / Jug / unglazed earthenware, charcoal, cork
Drinkable, clean fresh water is still considered a luxury in most parts of the world and chore to retrieve and filter. Major corporations have made the situation worse instilling a distrust of water safety and creating a plastic atrocity. Drinking safe water should not be consider a chore much less create an environmental disaster in the process.
Our typology evaluates the daily routine by using a centuries old process to keep the water cool and clean. We propose a portable 2L earthenware jug that will lower the water temperature 13°C in one hour keeping it fresh throughout the day and an activated charcoal to remove toxins.
