"Water that floats freely and makes contact with minerals is able to regain its vitality and its crystal structure. This was the inspiration for Dutch designer Nienke Vording to develop a series products for water consumption." via Core77Its a very "Nice" idea, not sure if it goes much beyond that though, I cant help thinking its a little contrived... although that sounds a bit too harsh. Whilst I applaud those people that drink natural water, I can hardly see how the "Ice-lolly" is making it more accessible or practical. But to be fair I'm not sure what the designer's original intention was (His website is in Dutch). It's a "Nice" idea, but not sure whether it's much more than that.
UPDATE: In hindsight, that was way too harsh... An anonymous commenter posted this:
"Ice lollies with a laser crystal as a rod. The ice has various flavours: mint, red pepper, lavender, rampart note, star anise and other fruit. Each frozen element uses its own taste and fragrance to flavour the water without further additives. - So i guess its a natural alternative to a chemical filled ice lolly." Anonymous
I can't be sure if this is the designer "defending" his work, it would sound so, and I apologise for the harsh tone, it wasn't intentional. Just a passing thought.
I think they look brilliant, and I think that forgetting to include how cool I thought they were in my previous entry may have made it sound all the more harsh. eeeek sorry.
Amazing work, by Nienke Vording
