Green Breeze / Sustainable air purifier

Green Breeze
Green Breeze

Green Breeze is a window filter made out of moss that captures fine dust, has low maintenance, requires no energy and will increase people's well being.
According to WHO, 91% of the world population breathe polluted air, especially the fine dust it contains attacks all human organs. Moss has the ability to bind and metabolise fine dust. For moss to survive it needs moisture, light and a surface to stick to. Green Breeze solves this by growing moss horizontally on slats. This will both slow down the drainage and create a good surface for the moss to stick. The shape of the slats is inspired by how plants collect, distribute and store water.
