‘funnel neck’ designed by madrid architectural and design firm kawamura ganjavian is derived from the idea that as consumers, we often forget to give second life to many objects of daily consumption around us. this design is bottle top that screws on conventional PET water bottles. thanks to its funnel shape, it collects rainwater or helps to fill the bottle with tap water while allowing users the act of watering plants.



designs of watering containers using PET bottles has also been previously prototyped by swiss designer nicolas le moigne who participated in designboom’s RE-think + RE-cycle competition in 2005. more info on his work titled ‘watering can’ is available here.


  • Great idea. Now just make the funnel of waterproof fabric so the funnel top could be easily collapsed and carried.
