Puur Zuiveren by Lukas Jager

  • It is ironic that the process to transform water to its veritable drinking state is so complex. For something that should come naturally, Dutch designer Lukas Jager questions why it is not more so. Puur Zuiveren is an effort toward a simple, more efficient and natural alternative for a water purification system. The method lies in material properties; a mix of sawdust and clay, after being heated at 850 degrees Celsius, forms a porous substance that acts as a water filter. This substance is molded into a bowl-like form and placed upon a simple wooden tripod. The sculptural piece is functional as a filter, and its minimalistic and natural look is testament to the artist’s underlying vendetta.
