The tree in water / cup

The tree in water

Although the principle of saving water is known to everyone, sometimes people seem to lack sense of saving it in real life. “The Tree in Water”is such a tasteful design for strengthening this sense. Coated with temperature-sensed material, the exterior wall of the cup will show the following variation: due to the temperature-sensed character, the green leaves on the ‘tree’ grow slowly as the water is poured into the cup while they gradually fall as the water inside is drunk, until they totally disappear.
