This project was part of a studio assignment to design a drinking vessel for toddlers. The intent was to design a container, similar in effect to a “sippy cup,” that allows children to drink safely and intuitively. I saw an opportunity to create a cup that filters water for use in both developed and developing economies. Inspired by the LifeStraw®, which is highly effective for those with the ability to suck water up through the device, my design allows children under 3 years of age who are not yet developed enough to use the LifeStraw® to have an easily drinkable source of clean water. The TimeisLife cup is meant for those most vulnerable to waterborne diseases, like small children, as well as adults who may have difficulty drinking, such as elderly users or those suffering from debilitating diseases like AIDS.
