Flozapper / Bug Zapper

The problem of flying insects into human beings' living spaces has challenged us for a long time. Having a studio in such place, we developed our bio-inspired, solar energy driven device to be pleasing and customizable. The main part of device sticks to a window; it saves and uses the electricity to run UV-LED, discharge when needed, and to work all night. The customizable part is a folded recycled paper that comes in various colors and textures. The user unfolds it and attaches it to the main part as a container. It fits the diameter of the main part due the zigzag shape. The crammed paper container can be reused or disposed, afterwards.
