Tropism Well, a Unique Take on the Water Fountain

  • The Tropism Well by UK-based Poietic Studio is a revolutionary version the commonly known water fountain. Sensing the approach of an individual the well begins to lean automatically as water is pumped into the stem, pouring enough water to fill a glass. An elegant sculptural installation piece, The Tropism Well is both beautiful and intriguing. It is also unashamedly functional, existing simply to quench your thirst. Watch the motion of the Tropism in the video after the pictures.

    Through the synthesis of nature and technology, these structures explore the relationships we have with objects and spaces that surround us on a daily basis. The simple gestural connection creates a stimulating and symbolic moment. The Tropism Well uses natural laws of physics to function. Once it has seen you, the gentle bowing motion is created simply by moving water up and down the stem.
