Back to the roots / Air purifier

Back to the roots
Back to the roots

I worked on improving the indoor air quality. I chose to use plants as the main purifier, to avoid bringing another electrical product into the users home.
The result is a growing system concept working with a technique called aeroponics. Adding energy to the process vaporizes the air, for example solar energy. The polluted air is then mixed with the vaporized water and the water particles attract the pollution.
The product both cleans the air and adds humidity to the room, another thing which important for the air to be healthy. The product is made of glass, stainless steel and cork, and the only thing that must be added is a plant and water
