Secac Humidifier - Green Way to Reduce Stuffiness

Instead of having to completely clear out entire rooms in the household for ease of air flow, implementing a few green concepts like the 'Secac Humidifier' will allow for humidified air circulation, thus a comfortable living environment.

This humidifier was composed using readily available resources and, with a little bit of creative design, is now a modernistic piece that can make the home look nicer while providing eco-friendly breathing solutions. It is a simple white bucket that has a green rim and handle. It has an added top that looks like a sprout and all the user has to do is clip on the on/off switch and fill up the bucket to a given water level. Once switched on, the sprout moves downwards over the water, converting it to steam and pushing it out into the air. The word "Secac" means "sprout" in Korean, which adds to the creativity of the piece. It's an amazing green solution to optimize the home as an eco-efficient living station.

Aeroball by Jan Ankiersztajn

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.
