The drinking fountain is a ceramic water cooler that is connected to the existing water supply. it can be placed in a public environment, in- or outdoor. Here, the drinking fountain is creating a social meeting point; a place where people gather to drink.

The fountain is like an infinite source where you can fill your glass with fresh water, just by placing it on one of the tap points. The glasses and carafe have a rubber plug on the bottom with a little slit. This opens when placed on the valve, to let the water flow into the glass, and closes itself. When you lift the glass the water is retained.

Benefiting from the good water quality of the Netherlands, no use of bottled water is needed. Trough the use of earthenware the water stays fresh and cool in a natural way. Therefore the drinking fountain should enhance the appreciation of tap water and stimulate one to drink.
