June 14, 2011
Limited-Edition Series Unveiled in U.S. and CanadaWestlake Village, CA (June 14, 2011)—VAPUR®, creators of the flexible, reusable “Anti-Bottle,” is launching its much-anticipated, limited-edition “Artist Series” this June. The series features three winning designs from Vapur’s “Thirst for Design” competition, which took place in the fall of last year. “Our Artist Series was such a meaningful and important initiative for us. We were thrilled to have an opportunity to invite and foster talent from around the world,” said Jason Carignan, Chief Design Officer and Co-founder of Vapur. “Hundreds of artists from all parts of the globe submitted artwork inspired by the Anti-Bottle’s unique form and innovative style. These three limited-edition designs make Anti-Bottles truly functional works of art.” The melting pot of winners:
- “Bottle Dweller,” by David Herbst, 24, of Germany — a teal Anti-Bottle, featuring the graphic illustration of the Vapur “Bottle Dweller,” a somber, yet comical oval-shaped character, shielding himself with an umbrella from a downpour of water as the bottle is being filled.
- “Aqua Libre,” by Marcel Weik, 30, of Germany — a red Anti-Bottle with a front and back mask design. The title translates from French to “free water” and is homage to the Mexican style of wrestling, known as “Lucha Libre.”
- “Shark Bait,” by Waqar Hassan Syed, 24, of Pakistan — a blue Anti-Bottle, featuring the image of a clever little fish holding a sign to disguise himself as fierce, toothy shark.
