The design principles behind the Spain based company Closca are deeply rooted in preservation through efficient, useful problem solving. I say preservation because Closca’s first ever design was the Closca Helmet, an urban cycling helmet that would actually collapse into a flat-pack, encouraging you to never leave home without it (because it isn’t bulky), and in turn use the helmet to preserve your head and health. Closca’s aim is now much larger than self-preservation. It aims at preserving our planet.
Closca’s vision is a pretty mighty one. They want to absolutely banish disposable plastic bottles. How do they pull off such a mighty task and overthrow a convenient, everyday product that generates over 80 billion units in waste each year? They replace not just the product, but the mindset too.
The Closca Bottle is a rather slick, clean looking borosilicate glass bottle that comes with a very handy, flexible silicone sleeve. The sleeve acts firstly as a grip, allowing you to hold the bottle when the contents inside are hot. Secondly, it also comes with a unique magnetic fidlock closure that allows you to fasten the Closca Bottle to anything you may have around you… your bike, your backpack strap, or a baby stroller. Designed to make you want to integrate your bottle into your everyday style, the Closca Bottle’s strap takes the inconvenience of “carrying” out of the picture, making sure you can simply strap the bottle to yourself or belongings and commute with ease… therefore encouraging you to prefer the reusable, Closca Bottle for its designed convenience over the plastic bottle for its popular convenience.
The Closca Bottle comes made in a tough borosilicate glass that’s 100% BPA free. The bottle features dual openings on the top and bottom, making it easy to clean and maintain. It is also completely dishwasher safe. Along with the bottle you also have the option to add on a tea-infuser base that you can use to brew beverages while on the go. Closca’s most discernible design detail remains the strap and the magnetic fidlock at one end, that allows you to fasten the bottle securely… with zero worry of the bottle coming undone, or slipping around (thanks to the silicone strap).
However, the Closca Bottle’s greatest achievement is (like I mentioned before) in changing the human mindset, rather than just being a better bottle. To reach this goal, Closca has also introduced the Closca Water App. With over 56,000 registered refill stations worldwide, this complimentary app helps you locate the closest places where you can refill your bottle for free. This little masterstroke pushes you to pick the Closca Bottle every time over a readily available (but for a price) plastic bottle. Creating an application to find free water around you is exactly the kind of lateral thinking the plastic bottle crisis needs, and the Closca Bottle, along with its beautifully sleek, desirable, and convenient design, does a great job of reducing greatly (if not eliminating) the need of plastic bottles, and in turn, preserving our wonderful planet!
