Once a common sight across Victorian Britain, drinking fountains were a generous and civic celebration of free and clean drinking water. They were invariably beautifully crafted, frequently flamboyant and eye-catching affairs. Dixon takes inspiration from those grand Victorian fountains.

Designed & made by Mirrl of Glasgow in collaboration with Design Exhibition Scotland, the fountain is a contemporary celebration of drinking water. And of course, with rising concerns about single-use plastic bottles, it kicks back at the habit of spending good money on water that is drunk in minutes but wrapped in plastic that will survive for centuries.
