Paul Loebach & Kontextür’s x3 Watering Can
The pour and spout are constructed using a single metal tube, bent 3 times (hence the x3 in the name), and then soldered onto the body. The effect is beautiful in function and form: one bend to carry, another to pour. No surprise then that among the accolades heaped on this watering can is the top prize in the Best New Product category at Accent on Design during NYIGF 2013. Designed by Midwesterner-turned-Brooklyn local Paul Loebach for fellow American brand Kontextí¼r. A RISD grad, Paul’s mission is to “is to improve the lives of society as a whole by bringing value and meaning to the objects that inhabit our material world.” Even something as everyday as a watering can deserves a beautiful rethinking.
