BREATHING / Oxygen-supplied bag

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2017

Breathing is a bag that supplies oxygen for outdoor extreme mountaineering. As modern science and technology developed, the artificial synthesis of the chloroplast was also discovered. This backpack is made using Silk Leaf, a new material that contains chlorophyll and can perform photosynthesis wherever carbon dioxide, water and sunlight exist. What’s more, Silk Leaf produces oxygen 49 times more efficiently than ordinary leaves; it uses the carbon dioxide and water molecules exhaled by the user and adds air to perform photosynthesis. This reduces the risks for all athletes in environments with a lack of oxygen.

If this oxygen-supplied bag really works, there would be no more garbage from the oxygen bottles littering areas like the Himalayas. A very sustainable concept with a good design.
