POT ON

Finding new ways to obtain clean water in Africa is a primary need. That's why me and Alessandra Colella designed POT ON, a tool to obtain water out of the vapours released in the food cooking. This project is the winner of the Utilità Manifesta (Design for Volunteering) Challenge of 2011 http://www.utilitamanifesta.it/?page_id=2562&lang=it

The liquid in the pot reach the boiling-point.
Vapours canalized through the lid's pipe condens in into the jug.
The shape and the materials used are conceived with the traditional african pots and water containers in mind, considering the local production resources and facilities. Distilled water is bacteria free thus can be used to prepare powdered milk  for newborns, to melt medicines, to have a wash and, if put in a container with stones (necessary to restore minerals), even to drink.
