A countertop device that makes water from air.
Spout is a compact machine that can generate up to 2.5 gallons of water per day. It's more affordable than water delivery, more environmentally friendly than single-use water bottles, and cleaner than filtered tap water in many U.S. cities.The removable pitcher can be kept in a refrigerator to provide easy access to chilled water.
Filtered air is drawn through zeolite clay that absorbs any moisture in the air. The clay passes over a heating element, releasing water vapor which is then condensed, filtered, and remineralized to create an extremely pure tasting water. This process can work in about 80% of the world's households - with production dependent on factors like temperature, humidity, and altitude.
As the lead designer, my role was to bring Spout's futuristic technology into a compact and cost-effective unit that was delightful, convenient, easy to operate. Spout was designed to integrate seamlessly into any kitchen, making fresh and hyper-local water accessible to as many people as possible.
