Textiles that clean the air using light? It's possible thanks to recent developments in nano coatings, based on titanium dioxide and copper.
Onda shows how air purifiers could look with this technology. It changes the role of these devices from purely functional, to a canvas for personal expression.
Users choose a frame and custom textile design that fits their style. By pressing on the fabric they can check the air quality. This activates a light that will glow slow and calm while the air is clean, but becomes quick and stressed when sensing pollution.
Experience Onda yourself during Venice Design 2019 from
11 May - 24 November in the Palazzo Michiel. This exhibition is made possible thanks to support by the Creative Industries Fund NL, European Cultural Centre and Industrial Design TU/e.
