The conceptual 'Raindrop' comes as an artistic yet fully functioning piece of equipment for the modern home that will enable homeowners to capture rainwater from their gutters – enabling them to repurpose it for a variety of tasks around the house.

The unit works by being installed into gutter systems to capture the water during rainfall, which is then diverted away from the home and diverted to a raindrop-shaped unit. This can be used later for functions such as watering plants, and washing vehicles, without the need for a makeshift barrel to be installed in the drain section of a gutter system.

The 'Raindrop' system is the design work of Bas van der Veer, and identifies what can be done on a domestic basis to harvest resources.
