Bewater approached us with the idea of creating a resuable water bottle with a solid build and refined features that contains gemstones. Gemstones are said to change the quality and structure of water while giving it revitalising or strengthening properties. The combination of different gemstones is also said to have different effects and benefits to the water. Designing a bottle that reflects this key idea was vital to the products identity. As well as creating a gorgeous drinking vessel! Not to mention that it should be food friendly too. We certainly needed to work our magic on this idea.
Moving from ideation to manufacturing
We started by experimenting with a wide variety of bottle designs and shapes, looking into different methods of incorporating the stones. This ideation process led us to design a reusable bottle with a form that mimics the subtle movements of flowing water. The gemstone housing had to be designed in a way so the stones wouldn’t come in direct contact with the water being consumed. We took extra care to achieve this whilst also minimising part numbers. This was to reduce the overall manufacturing cost for our client. With this in mind, the screw base was designed to work universally with each product range to further minimise the overall manufacturing cost.
It’s a kind of magic
The final product was so much more than a reusable BPA free water bottle with a crystal chamber. It might look simple enough, but an immense amount of design and engineering went into creating a product that truly captures the identity of the brand. The way the body catches and refracts the light as you turn it, gives the bottle the appearance of water moving in your hand. Filling the bottle with water also magnifies the contents. This emphasises the gemstones and the insert housing them. At bewater it’s all about the health benefits of staying hydrated – be inspired, be empowered and be revitalised!
