Danish inventor Tayseer Hadi, a resident of Dubai, came up with the idea for a carafe shaped like the world’s tallest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa. “It suddenly hit me that I’d make a water in the shape of the Burj Khalifa,” he said. And so, in the run to the Expo 2020, Dubai will become a world first once again as it presents the most expensive water bottle and the world’s tallest crystal bottle – a Burj Khalifa-shaped water bottle.
It may not be an exact replica of the majestic skyscraper in terms of size, but at half a metre in height and luxury details of the iconic tower, this bottle is completely different we’re used to seeing. The 750ml containers will be made of K9 crystal, platinum and diamond-encrusted, and will feature LED lights, giving liquid inside a blue glow.
Although its primary purpose will be to serve as a souvenir, the actual water will be shipped over from Iceland. Get ready to pay AED 700 ($190) per bottle.
