Smoking Mushroom / Industril Design

Smoking Mushroom
Smoking Mushroom

More and more smoking areas are being set up nowadays, but most are isolated from nonsmoking ones and the space for smokers is quite limited.
The design is not meant to promote smoking. Since it seems not possible to forbid smoking entirely, why not make it a less harmful activity?
Therefore, the idea is to design smoking areas in an open style, and purify the smoke before it releases by using the photo catalyst technology. The design will be more smoker-friendly and offer a more leisurely outdoor environment for smokers.
