stRAINer : Storm water drains are a common sight in urban areas. It just so happens that in some areas, these storm water drains include messages regarding the environment. Some drains are cast with text and sometimes graphics, such as “Do not pollute”. Others, similar to the one posted above, include road paint profiles of fish, as a reminder that our storm water is fish water too. We thought it more personal and perhaps more effective, to bring a similar message into the home, right to the source - the sink. However, not via text,
rather through aesthetically pleasing images that are associated with sensitivities in nature and human associations.
We recently exhibited our sink stRAINer's at Dwell on Design 2009, courtesey of Kitchen Ecology.
