You’d think that more companies would take a hint from Apple when it comes to slick product design. And don’t get me wrong, design isn’t everything, but it can definitely make your product stand out, particularly if you’re in a crowded market. Take water bottles for example. While I’m perfectly happy with my stainless steel SIGG bottle, I’m ready to trade it in for one of these cool looking KOR ONE ‘hydration vessels’. (Which in and of itself sounds cooler than ‘water bottle’.) Besides being re-usable, the KOR ONE doesn’t use any polycarbonates (like other re-usable plastic bottles) which according to their website contains bisphenol-a or ‘BPA’ which is a known hormone disruptor. That’s pretty much the reason I switched to a stainless steel water bottle in the first place. The KOR ONE also features a hinged cap that can be opened and closed with one hand without the risk of it falling off or going MIA.
The KOR ONE will be available from the company’s website in August for $29.95, and if you think that’s expensive just run the numbers on how many bottles of water you buy in a year and I think you’ll find it quite reasonable.
