Airtomo Air Purification System

About

A new, nature-inspired system to purify air in underground environments

Inspired by how nature uses rain to clean the air, Airtomo wearables and modules release dry, atomised water vapour to remove pollutants through a process called aggregation. Water droplets bind harmful particles to form large, heavy aggregates which fall to the ground - where they can be wiped out - thus removing pollutants from the air. The modules have been developed especially for underground transport systems, where they can reduce the presence of iron oxides in the air passengers breathe. Through a similar process, the wearables create a personal vapour cloud that actively cleans the air we breathe as we move.

    I have always perceived design as a conversation between people and the encompassing environment. To me, common sense is thus crucial and is often the cornerstone for successful translations. My philosophy is therefore to design with sensitivity such that it is simple, engaging and pleasurable. Curious about the motivations behind interactions and people’s behaviour, I observe, tinker and question the world around me. Such knowledge empowers me to explore various domains from product, service, interaction, branding to medical, spatial and exploratory design.more
