AKVO / Water Collector/Container

AKVO
AKVO

Inspired by the way nature collects water and with a clear reminiscence of natural forms, Akvo is a product designed to collect and contain drinking water in places where there is no access to it. It’s a transportable and personal object which collects up to 2 lts. of rainfall water, ensuring the minimum amount of daily recommended water consumption per person.
The leaf-shaped funnel has a hidrophobic, auto-cleaning treatment which helps to collect water more quickly, while the bi-component filter, made of polyamid and argent threads that act as a biotic barrier, keeps the water clean and pure.
