Designer, and BA (Hons) Furniture and Product Design graduate, Francesca Mancini won the award in category “Water” as part of the Energy Globe Award Ceremony in Salzburg, this week.
During her final year in the product workshops of The Cass, Francesca developed a simple construction for households to directly use gray water from showers and sinks for flushing toilets – so enormous amounts of water can be saved.
