Emanuele Pizzolorusso, an Italian designer, has created reusable water bottles for use in 10 global cities – each with a list of locations of public water fountains on one side.
Made from PBA-free resin, the 500ml water bottles are marketed by Florence-based brand Palomar. They were designed as an alternative to plastic water bottles and to make finding a place to refill easier, reports Dezeen.
“I worked on what I thought would be the best proportion and size to perform the function of carrying half a litre, as well as displaying a certain amount of information. So it needed to be somehow flat and yet easy to hold in one hand,” Emanuele Pizzolorusso, founder of design studio Pizzolorusso told Dezeen.
Each bottle is an identical shape, and has the name of a specific city written vertically up one edge. Pizzolorusso has designed reusable water bottles for Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Milan, New York, Paris, Rome and Tokyo, and another bottle for Anywhere.
One side of each bottle features the locations of drinking fountains where users can refill them, divided up according to district. The Anywhere bottle instead has a short text playing around with the concept of filling a bottle.
