Julia Burke's Green Air Purification System

Plant Air Purification System Concept

One of the designs awarded at BusinessWeek/IDSA IDEA Awards 2007 got me very interested and I thought mentioning it in an article on perfectcube. Creation of Julia Burke, IDSA of University of Notre Dame, GREEN AIR is a low-cost, space-efficient air purification system that uses plants to reduce toxins in the air.

The wall-mounted ceramic planter contains a small 115 VAC fan that slowly pushes air through the soil to the plant’s roots, a process that breaks down toxins equal to that of 15 regular plants. A conical bottom allows users to easily replace plants without interfering with the fan. GREEN AIR’s organic, twisting form appears to wrap around the plants in an elegant, nurturing manner, and its matte, textured ceramic exterior is a soft contrast to the plant’s dark, glossy foliage.

Because over-watering is the number one reason indoor plants die, an ambient temperature sensor, which looks like a droplet of water, changes from blue to brown to indicate when and how much water the plant needs.
