Carafe with Swinging Cover

Design competitions are fun… and also not fun. People try really hard when they have to compete for something, so the designs you see are really special. Sadly, you usually can’t purchase any of them, since they’re not in production. Not yet anyway.

Nevertheless, here you have number two Macef Design Award of 2004. It goes to one Dietmar Sebel. See, it’s just a carafe, otherwise known as a water jug. It has a nice lid that keeps dust and stuff from getting in while it’s just standing around. Then, when you want to pour… you just pour. The lid magically, through the help of Mother Gravity, gets out of the way.

Ingenious I say.
