“We were extremely disappointed with the market’s current offerings for steel reusable water bottles. They didn’t feel right – whether in our hands or on our lips,”recalls KOR Water CEO, J. Eric Barnes.

Named after Lake Vida, a frozen saline lake in Antarctica, the Vida range is the result of the successful and strategic partnership of KOR Water and design group, RKS, based in the United States.

“We’ve worked to consider form and function and deliver beauty and elegance because sustainable change is about much more than trial or use in a product context, it’s ultimately about adoption and advocacy,” says RKS Founder and CEO, Ravi Sawhney.

The Vida body is hydro-formed from 18/8 stainless steel, and the spout is injection moulded in polypropylene.

Co-moulded in polypropylene, the cap doubles as a comfortable carry handle, and blends into the overall form.

Vida’s tapered profile and handle are functional and ergonomic, and are designed to harmonise with KOR’s existing and new product ranges - promoting personal and environmental health.

The curved base facilitates easy cleaning, in or out of the dishwasher, and reduces damage from knocks to the base.  The thread-less spout is comfortable to sip from.

The elegant Vida is lightweight, weighing in at 160 grams for the 500ml and only 227 grams for the 750ml version. 

Vida sales are included in KOR’s Thirst for Giving™ program, which donates 1% of sales to water related charities and raises awareness for ocean protection, container recycling, watershed protection, and the global water crisis.
