Access – water glassware is a set of six drinking glasses. It confronts the people dining, with the global distribution of clean drinking water. Each glass represents a specific region and translates the available percentage of clean water access.
Each glass consists of a base and a cup part, together they make up 100 percent. The transparent part shows the safely accessable drinking water. Whilst the colored base, refers to a limited access of water, the engraved lines on the bottom stand for the unimproved amount in that region. An engraving allocates what region the glass represents.
“We often take clean and fresh tap-water for granted - maybe we should see it more often in relation to other areas, to cherish it more and use it in a respectful way ”
