Algae Chair / Product Design

Algae Chair
Algae Chair

According to the strong environmental adaptability and purification capacity of Algae, it can be used as a new functional material and furniture to form a new sharing ecosystem.
Passing people, attracted by these furniture, by scanning QR code used to pay a fee to open, when people sit on it, and it constituted a symbiotic relationship. People breathe or meditate in the "embryo". The algae purify the carbon dioxide that people breathe out and the waste gas from the city into fresh oxygen.
I hope this design can cause people to pay more attention to themselves and their surroundings.
