Designers rethink an everyday object by using a traditional Swiss technique of wood burning.

Italian designers Formafantasma has created a series of water purifying systems that are made from blown-glass containers and sculptured charcoal. The process to create the unique shapes involved leaving pieces of wood to char inside a smoldering mound, then sculpting them. Some of the shapes included a paddle, a lid, a funnel, and a ladle.

The series is called ‘Confrontations’ and is deeply rooted in Swiss tradition. The exhibition will be on display at the Vitra Design Museum in Germany.
