The exhibition presents a survey of social and product design projects related to the various uses of water, divided into two sections. In the first one is a reconnaissance of objects related to the various uses of water (cultivating, condensing, purifying, quenching, filtering, washing, collecting, transporting, and conserving) designed and manufactured by international designers.
