Original Breath / Air Purifier

Original Breath
Original Breath

Original Breath is an innovative air purifier. The design employs plants and solar energy to obtain clean air. The innovation is formed as a window. Outdoor urban air could flow in from the bottom inlets. Although the air may accompany harmful substances, the inside plants are applied as natural organisms to purify the air. The fresh air is propelled into the indoor by solar-energy powered fans. Besides, the outer glass sheet and inner partition can isolate noise and maintain suitable temperature for the indoor environment.
