Dodola

Non electric modular water filter

Dodola is an installation of filtration modules which purifies water of contaminants as small as bacteria, thereby leaving behind only the desired constituents. It’s made of clay, mixed with organic material and fired in a way which increases its porosity by a manyfold. The gyroid structure which accelerates the filtration of water by increasing the available surface area of the module is achieved by 3D printing the otherwise fragile raw clay mixture. The product can transport the filtered water upwards by relying on the flow of the water meaning it can work in remote locations.
