Found this lovely little reminder on Treehugger today, it’s the Want vs. Need Glass, cleverly designed to overflow at the first drop over need. It’s a statement on water consumption.
Here’s what Trendhunter had to say:
“Luckily, you can buy something else to acknowledge your wastefulness. The want vs. need glass is a $24 piece of art available from Alesina Design. When you fill the glass up too much, it drains your excess all over the table.
I like the concept a lot, but I think there’s a lot of irony in actually buying something extra to make a point about consumerism. Maybe you can be more shallow about the meaning and just enjoy the glass as a fun prank.”
To get in on the joke or consume some more yourself (no judgment!), you can buy it here: Alesina Design
