Playful Drainpipes By Kasia Zareba

Drainpipe Waterfall by Kasia Zareba
  • Every building has its drainpipes. Completely unnoticed the water flows from roofs to the ground. With any luck the pipes are hidden by an anonymous urban knitting activist, but most of the times grey drainpipes are just there hiding the water.

    Design Academy Einhoven graduate Kasia Zareba created a new type of drainpipe to make this water flow more visible. By replacing the traditional plastic casing with an open net, Zareba has not only made the drainpipe more playful and beautiful, she also hopes to “encourage people to make better use of the water that comes free, straight from the sky”.
