Discipline: Professional Concept

At present, the temperature control of most living spaces relies on air conditioning, which expends a lot of energy and fills the air with harmful substances. Temperature-controlling ceramic tiles represent a healthy and ecological alternative. The tile’s hollow part is filled with plant straw powder, which is lightweight and has good water absorption, allowing plants to grow on the tile. An integrated watering system serves a dual purpose: watering the plants and cooling the air. Hot air can be pumped away through the air system.
