Lotus / Water Purifier

Lotus
Lotus

This product is inspired by nature; lotus and bamboo which can purify water.
Set up under an island table, the beautiful curvy shape of the purifying system unites with a modern kitchen interior. The action, 'pouring', represents an interaction between user and the product. The LED lighting from the bottom layer reminds of a lotus floating on the water. Usually you tilt the handle to pour water, but in case of filling several cups, you set a fixed quantity to automatically rotate and fill up. The tray can be removed from the purifier to move cups at once. Standing next to main purifier, the metallic stake sterilizes cups by harmless UV light.
