the bottle



Tap water is cool.

Phil the bottle is the City Bottle that chooses free water, offered by the drinking fountains to be found in the cities, in their in parks and gardens, in squares and along the streets.

Phil the bottle is the refillable bottle that can guide you towards urban fountains.

Phil the bottle – The analog (drinking water) App

On the back of each bottle there is a list of the city’s drinking fountain locations, where it can be filled; these available sources of drinking water, which is safe because it is highly monitored, are listed one by one with easy to find addresses.

The Phil the Bottle collection grows over time. If the bottle of your city is not yet available, there is always the Phil the bottle of Anywhere!

Phil is compact, a small and precious fillable container. The list with the addresses of drinking fountains reminds us that every city has a privileged relationship with water, the most precious and often forgotten of public assets.  This project is an amusing invitation to use more taps and less bottled water.

As in a treasure hunt among the city streets
They competed to find it first.

Water, water! Happy and excited
The fastest of the the water finders shouted
As he found the fountain
It was right there, almost hidden,
between the houses and the wall.


The places where water comes together with other water. Those places stand out in my mind like holy places.

Raymond Carver
