a Soda Syphon in all its glory...

If anything captures the style and mood of the late 60's and 70's, it is the Soda Syphon. Everybody either had one or knew someone with one. They came in a wide variety of colours and patterns, manufactured by the British Oxygen Company, as well as Sparklets in the USA.

They had a uniquely beautiful form as well as a practical function, only now beginning to be appreciated. This site is devoted to the non-glass designs, old & new.
