W/AIR


with Pedro Nakazato Andrade (CIID - 2009)




W/air came from thinking about an extreme future where air will be so toxic that people will need always to carry oxygen mask.

Instead of a classic oxygen mask we created a comfortable “breathing” necklace which filters and stores CO2 from air and provides O2 for the user. The stored CO2 will be used as a font of energy to be reused in everyday life.

People can wear it when they go out and if the air pollution is too high, the necklace will produce a sound to warn the user to close the front to protect themselves. The user will be also warned when the filter for the CO2 is full and the user can easily replace it.
