    Not everyone on this planet we call home has access to fresh water and quite a substantial part of the world’s population has to travel distances for potable water supply. It’s only fair that the privileged few waste less water and adopt a sense of water conservation. Swedish industrial designer Mehrdad Mahdjoubi thought so too and came up with the OrbSys Shower concept, a high-tech purification system that recycles water while you wash! Quoting Mahdjoubi, “With my shower, which is constantly recycling water, you’d only use about five liters of water for a 10 minute shower … In a regular shower you would use 150 liters of water — 30 times as much. It’s a lot of savings.”

    The OrbSys Shower manages to save more than 90% in water usage and 80% in energy. After crunching numbers and doing a little math, we realized that a system as such could easily deduct $1351 off annual energy bills. The OrbSys Shower deserves a place in the market space and could very well inspire other manufacturers to create water-saving bathroom fittings as such.
