Moby / Air Filter/Ceiling Lamp


Moby is a large particle air filter that doubles as a ceiling lamp. Dust particles are pulled into Moby’s mouth where the dust collects on its teeth made of a sticky but soft Santoprene. As the dust builds up, the light is blocked.

A fan pulls air from the side lip through the filter material and ejects the air out of the top. Large particles collect on the filter and settle in the belly. The build up eventually begins to block out light. Peel off the belly when the filter
gets dark and place it in the top rack of the dishwasher. The filter can be re-used and the materials are recyclable.
