Combining high and low materials, design duo Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin created Still, a collection of vessels made out of crystal, with copper and activated charcoal used as filters.

‘Water covers 70% of the Earth’s surface and it is vital for all known forms of life,’ say the designers. ‘Only 2.5% of the Earth’s water is fresh water, while less than 0.3% of all fresh water is found in rivers, lakes and the atmosphere. Still is designed to serve the most humble and fundamental of all drinks: tap water.’

The designers have investigated the potential of charcoal before with their 2012 project Confrontations, which LS:N Global profiled in our Innovate section.
