The Rain Gauge is a lovely product that enables you to stay knowledgeable about the climate in your own backyard. While it might initially look like a hi-tech outdoor appliance, you'll discover that it's quite basic in function and pleasantly contemporary in appearance.

Conceived by Tools Design and manufactured by Eva Solo of Denmark, the contraption comprises a long soil-penetrating spike that seems to broaden into a conical form to take on the silhouette of a blooming flower. The smooth and sculptural object integrates a funnel-shaped beaker that can be easily emptied and reinserted. The Rain Gauge has numerical volume markers from point to rim that are visible down a side slit and help you to read the amount of fallen water.
