The Original Air

The Original Breath is a window based air purifier that brings in purified air into your room and employs a very unique way of doing this. It features a system where the external part consists of a solar panel (to power a mini suction fan), an outer glass and plants. So basically what happens is that the air enters the room only after passing through this sealed ventilation box. Regular air is sucked in with the help of the fan and the plants do their thing by absorbing the carbon dioxide and expelling oxygen. The air that is filtered into the room is much cleaner and fresher than before. Clever!

Original Breath is a 2012 iF Design Talents entry.
