Liquid Japanese Tech Awesomeness

Black + Blum, eau good water bottleReturned to work today to find my new ‘toy’ had arrived from the insanely talented guys at Black + Blum, designers extraordinaire. It might not look much but this simple water bottle is anything but. It is based on a Japanese filtration system that uses a Binchotan charcoal stick, which sits in place inside the bottle, lasts for six months and purifies even the dodgy tasting tap water at work such that it literally tastes of nothing. Might not sound quite so exciting in black and white, but it was pretty cool! I like the taste of ‘nothing added water.’

Anyway, like I say, just thought I would share that with you in case you too liked funky and functional design.
