“Tropism Well may be the most decadent method of serving a glass of water we have ever encountered.”

Philippa Warr, Wired

We provide Tropism Well for hire worldwide. Share details of your project and we’ll get back to you with a quote.

Graceful and giving.

Graceful, giving and ever-attentive, when Tropism Well senses you approaching, it gently bows to fill your glass.

A remarkable centrepiece.

Spellbound guests feel compelled to respond to this elegant drinks pourer as if it were a living thing. Fill it up with your tipple of choice and allow Tropism Well to quench your thirst from its glass carafe.

Happy Startup’s Summercamp

Cutting edge.

Tropism Well uses facial recognition to detect the presence of a thirsty person. Once approached, the gentle bowing motion is created simply by moving the liquid up and down the stem.

Bring people together.

Tropism Well is the perfect host. It’s unusual movement & giving nature encourages conversation between those that have not yet met.

Facial Recognition


Tropism Well uses a camera facial recognition software to detect the presence of a thirsty person.
