MONO – an instant water ionizer created during a 2 week length workshop between 3rd grade Vilnius Academy of Arts design students and Kaunas University of Technology 4th year industrial engineering students.
Problem: Current water ionizers need a lot of space on counters, have a lot of parts which need to be dryed out or cleaned, some of them need professional equipment to mount it. They lack smart user-experience. Also water ionizers look like electric kettles.
Idea: Main principle of design: form follows function. The goal was to make the ionizer compact, minimal and easy to use.
Materials used: Chrome and plastic. The product itself comes in two different colour choices: silver and black. That is done to retain the product’s sleek, minimal and solid appearance.
1. Fill up the 2l bottle from faucet.
2. Insert the bottle into the ionizer.
3. Adjust the right PH of your ionized water
4. Put a glass into place
5. After 1 minute enjoy your ionized, alkaline water.
6. When the red light comes up be sure to take out the acid water.
MONO 3000 – an instant water ionizer with the ability to filter water. This product is intended to be 1.5 times larger than the original MONO due to the size of the filter.
