This unique, upscale natural water purifier system is a stunning minimalist design that fuses the worlds of sustainable water intake and cutting edge design.

Available from Danish charcoal product purveyors Sort of Coal, the stunning glass one-liter water bottle comes with a stick of Kishu Binchotan, a Japanese variety of charcoal that dates back to the Edo period and originates in the Kishu region. Kishu Binchotan is cultivated by artisans in the Kishu region, who transform raw wood into the highly value final product by burning it at insanely high temperatures and then burying the flaming wood in the dirt, a process that carbonizes the wood.

This high-end, modern iteration of an ancient technology is a stylized reinterpretation of an important hard wording natural mineral.
