Beet juice drink bottle (2016)
black porcelain, wood, glass
Product Design - Year 2
Drink bottle for doping-dominated professional sport cultures.
After research, I found out that beetroot juice can affect a sportsman the same way as doping can. First it has a resistance enhancing value. But more important, beet juice can allow hemoglobin in the blood to transfer more oxygen, which can be beneficial for sport performances. In that way this innocent drink can be seen as a semi legal drug.
In the drink bottle a normal fluid can be inserted. However, in the cap is a small glass containing the beetle juice. The black porcelain covers up this controversial dope juice.
