From basic to elegant Before After World-wide millions of people at work and at home quench their thirst by means of plain white plastic water coolers, functional yet unergonomical and unaesthetical by design.
Traditional cooler as used world wide Before After In 2002 Sip-Well, as an innovative fast growing, creative service provider, from small local businesses to world-wide dominating corporations, together with ENTHOVEN ASSOCIATES, the well renowned, highly talented and ambitious group of designers situated in Antwerp, Paris, Seoul and Bangkok, with expertise in the fields of transportation, consumer, industrial, electronic, furniture and service design, set out to build a unique and dramatically different concept : the Prestige Cooler. Research indicated the need for a revolutionary different design : with its stylish, grey and brushed aluminium finish, with its elegant wasp middle, with its convenient and hygienic push buttons, with its contact avoiding clean-by-design tap, with its elevated height - thus avoiding users to bend over whilst serving themselves and finally with its visually hidden, integrated cup dispenser, the Prestige proved to be exactly that. The Sip-Well Prestige was and still is an inspirational to designers world-wide due to its unique and pioneering design. Prestige cooler
In 2005 Sip-Well once again ventured across existing barriers : the design of the 5 gallon (18.9l) bottle proved to be a constraint for many users, due to its bulky size and considerable weight. The need for an easier-to-carry, lighter and better appealing 10 litre bottle was discovered after intensive consumer observation. Sip-Well asked ENTHOVEN ASSOCIATES, based on similar design guidelines as for the Prestige Cooler to devise a 10 litre bottled water cooler, further enhanced by applying the most sophisticated hygienic, safety and cooling technologies available to date. An elegant, slim, durable appliance is the outcome : the Sip-Well SublimO. Before After
Introducing 5 unparalleled colour combinations, minimalistic architectural design for both the cooler as well as elegant and convenient 10 litre bottle. The 10 litre bottle was designed in 3 previously unseen colours : Candy Pink, Mediterranean Blue-Green and Denim Blue. These colours add fun and creativity to a iconic product. The built-in handle, in matching colours, contribute to the convenience, handling and positioning the bottle on the cooler. The polycarbonate base material chosen to blow-mold the bottles allow to re-utilize the SublimO bottle at least 80 times without compromising the safety of its contents and its visual appearance. In comparison : a glass bottle is only re-utilized up to 12 times. To assure the solidity of the SublimO bottle and to protect the surface of each bottle embossed curves were ingeniously and decoratively integrated in the shape of the bottle.
