Hydration meets high design
Classy and glassy, the OVO home water filter/dispenser helps you break the plastic water bottle habit with flair. Added bonus: You can serve booze from it.

Here’s an anti-water bottle design concept spotted over at Yanko Design
that I’m totally digging: the OVO
from Manuel Desrochers. Inspired by the green n' gorgeous Aquaovo
water filtering system, the OVO is a big ole’ clear water dispenser/filterer that holds 5 to 6 gallons of agua and is made from glass and recyclable, BPA-free resins. It can be placed on a stand or mounted on a wall to conserve space and looks like a big incandescent light bulb stuck inside of a bubble. Or something. With an estimated pricetag in the ballpark of $150 to $200 it’s not as affordable as other options out there
but for serious H2O-guzzlers — and party-throwers — I think it’s well worth it.
And on the topic of parties … you can bypass the water filtration system and use the OVO as a dispenser for all liquids including adult beverages. And hello, sangria fountain! Another cool feature is that the water filtration tank can come in six different colors although I'm partial to non-colored.
What do you think? Would you install a OVO in your kitchen or is it a bit too much?
