Soma brings contemporary design and cutting edge science to the water jug

Soma Glass Carafe with Filter

Slowly but surely the every day objects in our homes are being filled with better designed versions of themselves. I’d say it started with the Nest thermostat, then the August Smart Lock, and now you’ve got Soma’s new filtering water carafe.

Soma has taken the mundane filtered water pitcher and turned it into a piece of art with a bit of science mixed in. The beautiful curved glass carafe has a wonderful shape, but the design of the filters themselves are interesting on their own. They’re actually 100% biodegradable, made from all-natural Malaysian coconut shells, vegan silk, and food-based PLA plastic. Plus they’ve created a subscription service which delivers a new filter to your door every two months so you’re never confused when to change it. Pretty smart, right?
