iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

Handwashing plays a critical role in the fight against the spread of Covid-19 and other infectious diseases. However, clean running water is scarce in rural areas of many developing countries. The water truck, which in many cases is the main source of clean water, can take weeks to arrive. This device provides a sustainable source of clean water through organic filtering and recycling.

This design is based on a detailed study of water needs and usage in parts of the world that suffer from water scarcity. The clever revolving hourglass form dispenses with the need for an electric pump, allowing this station to be easily installed off-grid.
