Revolve is a collection of water bottles designed by Israeli designer Talia Mukmel.
The project was commisioned by Miami-based Aybar Gallery, which collaborates directly with the designers on site-specific projects which are featured in solo shows in its space in Miami and with International apparitions at the best Collectors Fairs. Before the design process, Talia studied the historical methods of storing water. By examining the material, compontents and design differences of every earthenware remnant, Talia was able to learn more about ancient civilizations regarding their cultural, economic, production and technological values.
"The choice to design water bottles resulted from my desire to create an object expressing the spirit of a given historical period combined with a contemporary vision. During the process, I experimented with different techniques in order to find a way by which I could preserve the attributes found in ancient hand work, while utilizing techniques of production based on today’s modern materials.The bottles presented in this collection are made of plastic. The main challenge of this project was to find the particular material which symbolized modernism and at the same time suggested the appearance and sense of being naturally crafted,” said the designer.
