Join the Pipe
Access to clean drinking water is a problem in large parts of the world. Join the Pipe is the first social network of tap water drinkers and wants to change that. Join the Pipe promotes drinking tap water with the aim of a fair distribution of drinking water. With the sale of water taps and refillable tap water bottles, drinking water projects in developing countries are financed.
DWARS design designed the iconic series Pipe Bottles and Pipe Carafes. The Pipe Carafes consist of a series of five tap water carafes that refer in their shape to the fitting pieces of water pipelines. The carafes are made of glazed ceramic and have a silicone sealing cap. The carafes are intended for use in restaurants, at the office, or at home.
