Yves Béhar Redesigns Retro Soda Fountain [Pics]
A popular home appliance in the 80s gets revamped by the founder of fuse project to appeal to the modern, eco-conscious consumers.
American industrial designer Yves Behar was commissioned by SodaStream to revamp its homemade carbonated water appliance that was fairly popular in the 1980s. Behar aims to redesign the fizzy drink maker with functional aesthetics in mind but also appealing for the eco-conscious consumers.
SodaStream Source was invented in 1903 that turned ordinary tap water into carbonated drinks. Behar had to rethink the dispenser’s form, materials and composition. The finished product is refined, minimalistic, and timeless. A plastic bottle can be locked into place and the simple LED display shows the settings. The bottle can be washed and reused to reduce plastic consumption. In addition, there are 20 different syrups to select from, including more exotic flavors like green tea lychee, kiwi pear, and forest fruit lemongrass.
