Kitae Pak designed the Dew Bank Bottle lately after being inspired by onymacris unguicularis, a beetle found in the Namibian desert. The beetle procures water in a unique way: it goes to the peak of the sand dune every morning, and uses its body to help in dew formation, making the dew enriched fog to provide enough water for drinking. The Dew Bank Bottle works in almost the same way as that beetle. Its steel body assimilates the morning dew, purifies the water and then stores it in the bottle.

The Dew Bank Bottle won the Bronze Prize at the Idea Design Awards 2010.
