The cloud generator emerged from a conceptualization session around the future of beverage. The classic approach to revamping any system is to reverse-engineer it. We first worked with cola and broke it down into it's base flavorings, which included many beautiful natural ingredients. In an effort to take the deconstruction one step further we thought to eliminate the most common association with beverage, phase, and developed a process to create table top clouds. We quickly learned that the clouds could be poured into glasses, sipped through straws, layered over one another, or over other beverages.
