Façade Mask / Filter Device

Façade Mask
Façade Mask

There will always be fine particles and droplets drifting in the environ-ment where they enter our bodies through respiration and accumulate in our respiratory system, which may cause our lungs and trachea to be damaged. The masking facade's characteristic is to use the moss as an air filter to absorb the fine particles and purify the indoor air quality, along with the bamboo as the prominent material for the facade. The bamboo silk is woven into fine sheets to provide an attachment with the moss, creating a film at the side of the building and becoming a genuine architectural mask.
