elBotijo

We propose to retreive an item from Spanish tradition which has been used to cool water in a natural way for centuries: el botijo, a special kind of ceramic vase.

The porous pottery absorbs some of the water that the botijo contains. When water reaches the outer surface, it slowly evaporates. This makes water become colder.

Developed together with Mariana Lerma
