airo / Air cleaner


Airo is a photosynthetic air cleaner.

The world has a huge problem of air pollution caused by industrialization and manufacturization. Air pollution is even invading the residential space. Clean air these days plays a significant role in our lives.

The artificial leaf undergoes photosynthesis like a real leaf and makes oxygen. The created oxygen goes though the Airo's filter and changes into various fragrances such as flowers and grass. It's possible to use Airo with the photosynthetic energy without additional energy.
