Nine Elisava students have designed a jar to give value to the consumption of running water in the new restaurant Cocina Hermanos Torres in Barcelona. The one-liter capacity container has a design inspired by the same restaurant, characterized by pure forms of glass and a shiny black finish in metal parts.
The multidisciplinary team of Elisava’s students has created a ritual for the presentation of water on the table. As a result, the final product incorporates a wooden beater with a small porcelain container to add flavor notes to the water. In its presentation on the table, the jar, made of hand-crafted crystal, and the glass are placed in small metal bowls that collect the water condensed in the glass to avoid leaving stains on the tablecloth.
Response to the great environmental challenges
This project seeks to promote the consumption of running water as a healthy and responsible alternative to the environment. In this sense, the Cocina Hermanos Torres restaurant will offer the option of consuming running water among its customers. With this collaboration, Elisava is committed to design and sustainable development and puts in value design as a transforming agent of society and as a tool to give response to the challenges of climate change.
