Korean designers Woo sik Kim and Duck soo Choi have a new idea for a water filtration system to be used by people living in remote environments. The “happy basin” is placed onto unclean water and, as it’s pushed down, filters the water to create a contagion free source for drinking and washing up.
From the designers (forgive the broken English):
To help this serious problem, what we’ve done is breaking the stereotypical box of basin.
Based on general belief, it’s difficult to imagine that ‘basin with holes’ because it cannot store the clean water properly. Here is the Question, “What if there’s no clean water for storage?”
This is the spot of innovation. We need the totally different type of product. [sic]
