Natural Breath

Natural Breath

iF concept design award 2013

This unique, very practical window consists of a window frame, an air screen and an engine body; The air outlet and air intake of the engine body both have an air screen. The wind blows in from the air intake on the exterior wall and then passes through the air screen. Afterwards, the engine body increases the air volume. Finally, the wind reaches the window frame, and thanks to the Coanda effect, the natural outdoor air is pulled inside. This makes the air inside much fresher and more pleasant.

This award shows great support to our design and also an evidence of our team's improvement.And it'll certainly inspire us to work harder throughtout our lifetime.
