When it comes to realm of household items, odd and eccentric conceptions are surprisingly galore. However, the combination of improved functionality and intrinsic oddity in a single design is certainly very rare. And, this is exactly what the Oasis brings to the table, with its inherent flexibility. This convenient ‘elasticity’ is derived from components like latex and polyurethane, which are essentially used for manufacturing condoms.
Conceived by Korean designer Eun Ah Kim, the Oasis bottle actually is of a circular form with a rubber like cross-section (much like a condom). This gives it a very lightweight bearing, whose structural integrity is still maintained by the durability of latex component. But more importantly, the minimal form makes Oasis completely portable and water tight at the same time.
And, it is this enhanced portability that makes Oasis an essential part of any survival kit. In fact, according to the designer, the bottle can be inflated to hold a whopping 20 liters of water. Lastly, the strengthened elasticity of its structure allows it to resist various harmful effects (both from outdoors and indoors) encountered in relief camps and emergency situations.
