Smog Free Project Smog cleaner and Smog jewellery by Studio Roosegaarde

Home > Winners > #53088


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Smog Free Project

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Smog cleaner and Smog jewellery

INSPIRATION:
The Smog Free Project is inspired by Roosegaarde’s numerous travels in China, particularly by a visit to Beijing in 2013 when he could not look up out of his hotel room and children were kept indoors due to the severity of the smog. The project is a part of Roosegaarde’s larger oeuvre ‘Landscapes of the Future’ which connects people, technology and space to improve the quality of daily life in urban environments. The Smog Free Ring and Cufflinks are made from compressed smog particles.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Smog Free Project offers a unique sensual experience of a clean future. It consists of Smog Free Tower and Smog Free Jewelry, and the Tower is the largest air purifier in the world that cleans 30,000m3 per hour via patented ion technology, using no more green electricity than a waterboiler. Collected smog particles are then compressed and turn into a tangible souvenir, rings and cuff-links. By sharing a Smog Free jewelry, one donates 1000m3 of clean air.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The park where the Smog Free Project is installed offers free entrance. Follow our WeChat and Weibo for detailed information.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The Smog Free Tower is on tour around more cities in China and other cities across the world.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
For a period of 41 days, the Smog Free Tower has cleaned a volume of 30 million m3 of Beijing’s air which equals to a volume of 10 Beijing National Stadiums (also known as the Bird’s Nest). It has captured billions of harmful PM2.5 airborne particles during its exhibition time. The smog particles collected from the Smog Free Tower in Beijing are used to make a special limited edition as a tangible souvenir of clean air. By sharing a Smog Free Ring, you donate 1000 m3 of clean air to the city. Each unique ring is individually crafted by Roosegaarde’s design team. The new Beijing version of the ring accommodates more smog than its predecessor from Rotterdam and contributes to the development of the project and its global tour.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The 7 meters high Smog Free Tower is the largest air purifier in the world which creates a bubble of clean air enabling citizens to experience clean air for free. The Smog Free Tower cleans 30.000m3 per hour via patented ozone-free ion technology and uses a small amount of green electricity. The Smog Free Tower captures and collects more than 75% of the PM2.5 and PM10 airborne smog particles and releases clean air around the tower with a 360-degree coverage creating an almost circular zone of clean air in its surrounding.
