Titanium, Silicon and Air is a series of three domestic objects designed to naturally clean the air inside the home, as well as regulate humidity and temperature. Each object relies on the properties of fabrics, reinforced by specific substances that increase their efficiency. ‘Titanium’ is a fabric surface that has been covered in titanium paint. The paint reacts with light and causes a photocatalytic reaction that cleans the air of organic impurities. ‘Silicon’ combines cotton with silicon oxide, naturally absorbing excess humidity. ‘Air’ combines cotton with a low-density foam to create a light, sculptural object with high insulating properties.
