OVOPUR | Desvres | Acrylic Base$ 1,149.00 CAD $ 1,300.00 CAD
Desvres 2022 Edition!
Because water is at the very core of your life and your health, you deserve the best when it comes to filter and condition the precious liquid for your optimal hydration.
The OVOPUR eco-friendly designer water filtration unit - the Desvres Edition - is an assemblage of parts carefully handcrafted by handpicked artisans. The porcelain is produced in Desvres, France, a town that, much like Limoges, has built its reputation on the production of earthenware and porcelain since the 12th century. The acrylic base and the borosilicate glass filter cartridge are carefully assembled in AQUAOVO's Lanaudière workshop, near Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Please note that OVOPUR is currently in production and will be delivered in March 2023.
With its natural, innovative Canadian design that has won many prizes and that has been part of the permanent Decorative Arts & Design collection at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts for the last decade, OVOPUR is a functional and performant piece of art that will help you bring back water at the center of your daily life.
AQUAOVO leads with eco-friendly and design alternatives to popular water filter brands like Santevia, Brita, Berkey and Pur.
Not to mention the bottled water industry. A single AQUAOVO filtration unit can prevent the purchase, use and disposal of up to 4,000 plastic bottles per year, or nearly 160,000 bottles over your next forty years of active life. Now multiply this number by the thousands of AQUAOVO filtration units that are active on the planet! Come-back here after you purchased your unit and see how you too can have an impact on your environment.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT:
Outstanding Filtration = Great Tasting Water. Contains first quality NSF Certified filtration elements that have proven effective to filter out chemicals and organic pollutants from your drinking water.

SHAPE AND MOVEMENT
The unique shape of our water filtration unit did not result from sheer serendipity.
The OVOPUR unit combines the unique shape of an egg and the thermal properties of porcelain to preserve and revitalize water. Its sleek curves and total absence of right angles allow water to flow freely and naturally. Temperature differences and normal flow induce a biotic movement that prevents stagnation, reduces the risk of bacteria buildup, and helps to revitalize the water.
Inspired by the work of water research pioneers, its shape eases the circulation and regeneration of water. Its overall look is one of abundance, purity, rebirth, and infinity. Its appealing curves and use of fine materials like porcelain, wood, glass, and metal bear witness to our commitment to aesthetics and quality.
Designed to take advantage of the knowledge about the new adsorbent materials and the timeless role of sand in water purification, AQUACRISTAL, the multilayer reusable glass cartridge at the heart of the OVOPUR, contains first quality filtration elements that have proven effective to eliminate chemical and organic pollutants from drinking water by mimicking the action of the natural filtration cycle underground. See the AQUACRISTAL product page for the details.
Designed and raised in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, the OVOPUR eco-design water filtration unit is made from materials that fuse age-old traditions with tomorrow’s trends.
The products of the AQUAOVO experience are painstakingly handcrafted following age-old traditions and the renewable development guidelines. Our artisans are located in Canada, USA, Europe and Asia. They are all selected for their knowhow and respect of our ethical and fair trade values. Woodworkers, glassblowers, and ceramicists come together to create a perfect, functional piece of art set to become a valuable part of our daily life.
Our AQUACRISTAL glass filter cartridge is reusable: a first on the market! Return your used cartridge in its packaging. We will take care to recycle and reuse most of the parts so that we can continue to offer the filtration experience with the lowest environmental impact on the market.
All our products are made of sustainable, renewable or recyclable materials. Plastic components have been kept to a minimum and are generally recyclable.
Our packaging materials are carefully selected to minimize their impact on the ecological cycle. In addition, they are mainly made from recycled and recyclable materials.
The AQUAOVO experience advantageously makes it possible to stop the consumption of bottled water, a polluting industry that uses more than 80 billion plastic bottles a year in America alone and whose transportation activities are actively involved in the creation of greenhouse gases.
A single AQUAOVO filtration unit can prevent the purchase, use and disposal of up to 12,000 plastic bottles per year, or nearly 480,000 bottles over your next forty years of active life. Now multiply this number by the thousands of AQUAOVO filtration units that are active on the planet!
Through our choice of materials, our commitment to sustainable development and our policy of reusing filter cartridges, we set new environmental standards to meet the demands of our customers and the needs of our planet.
We adhere unconditionally to a philosophy of social, ethical and environmental commitment.
Its versatile design offers two easy modes: safe and convenient, the filtration mode with the AQUACRISTAL cartridge ensures a high quality year round water supply. More fun, the OVOBAR mode allows you to turn your OVOPUR into a stylish and functional beverage dispenser for when you throw a party or for a special event.
