Stone carafes by Niels Heymans

Three carafes that retrace the water’s journey from the tap to its source. They have been made out of Meuse limestone from a quarry near Spa, the source of some of the Dutch drinking water. Their form and function have been inspired by the natural material and process. Smoothened like a pebble in the river and shaped by the water’s flow, with the hue and tones of their place of origin. When you pour, the water trickles through the opening as it once did from a crack in the rocks. These Stone Carafes will draw your thoughts to the long way it has taken the water to reach us.
