under my umbrella

Light Objects РA design competition produced by Core77 and Dassault Syst̬mes

Andrew Leininen has designed an umbrella that catches water as well as keeping you dry. The water flows down the stem of the brollie, through a filter and then into a bottle. The umbrella filters the water through a carbon filter on the way through, producing clean and potable drinking water

Foggy solution

So its very foggy in Melbourne right now hey? How about this then- these
‘nets’ collect fog and dew and can produce up to 1 litre of fresh water per day. Not much I hear you say… every little bit counts. These nets were designed for countries such as Nepal and Chile where potable ground water is scarce.

George Sawyer has designed a small, portable version of the nets for hiking or camping.
