Fishter / Microplastic Filtration


Fishter is a low-cost, high-efficient microplastic filtration project that applies biomimicry design and local design concepts. It uses the oral structure of paddlefish to filter and enrich the microplastics in the water. It is made of bamboo weavings and CNC wood chips to be affordable and easy to assemble. Fishter can be used in various scenarios, from agricultural rivers to the sea. Fishter hopes to learn from nature and traditional culture to solve the environmental problems we face scientifically, creatively and humanly.
