Fortune Water Carafes by Mark Braun

Via @abitare, Berlin-based designer Mark Braun will present Fortune, a series of 22 water carafes engraved with glaciers, lakes and rivers from across the globe at Gallery Libby Sellers on December 13th.

Handcrafted by luxury glass maker J. & L. Lobmeyr, the name Fortune takes on a different connotation for this project - the water in the carafe is the luxury, as while the waterways depicted cover 70% of the planet's surface, they are a threatened resource.


"With climate change, pollution and an increasing population these waters are altering at an alarming rate. Braun's documentation is a frozen moment in this torrent of change."
