Crafted Water Carafe by Will Martin

Will Martin creates immersive environments, often using ceramics and food as narrative elements. For his commission with Hart Shoreditch for London Design Festival 2023, he has designed a water bottle that reflects the hotel’s rich history and tangible essence. Drawing inspiration from Victorian-era bottles unearthed in the area as well as the design details and intricacies of the buildings finishings, Will’s aim is to capture and distill Hart’s aesthetic into a beautiful everyday object for guests to use. Using the bottle brings awareness to the tactile and ergonomic shape, as well as sustainable design principles.
