The climate we live in is constantly changing; changes in the air quality of urban environments crate challenges and so consumers are looking for their indoor space to be a sanctuary from the suburban outdoors. Healthier air quality is a core factor for consumers, affecting personal health and appearance. Importantly for consumers, the potential to bring ‘fresh country air’ to the city could completely transform the atmosphere within their home.
The winner of the 2012 Design Lab competition is a revolutionary way to improve the air quality within the spaces that we live. Aeroball is a collection of luminescent, hovering balls that can filter and fragrance the air in a room. When filtration is not enough, Aeroball also comes in scented varieties. The glowing shell of the sphere absorbs light during the day and radiates at night, a delicate indoor firefly always working to improve the air that we breathe. They float using helium and drift down to the ground when they are ready to be changed.
