Natede Air Purifier by Vincenzo Vitiello - Laboratori Fabrici

Home > Winners > #72644


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Natede

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Air Purifier

INSPIRATION:
The core technology of Natede is phytoremediation, which means that it forces the air through the roots of the plant to amplify its natural purification power. This was studied by NASA in the ’80s and implemented by Laboratori Fabrici with 3 years of research at PNAT and LINV, two of the most important laboratories on plants neurobiology in the world.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Natede is the first IoT-ready and natural air purifier. It features also an incredible photocatalytic filter that gets also rid of viruses, bacteria and significantly reduces odors.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The interaction between Natede and their users is pretty simple: Natede features a proximity sensor that lets you turn it ON an OFF by simply moving your hand close to it. Natede features also an intuitive LED guide that lets you see the quality of your air without checking the app. Natede works with its dedicated app that allows users to monitor air pollutants and control the air flow in their space in real time. Natede can even connect to other smart home devices.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in October 2017. Pre-launched in April 2018. And will be Launched in April 2019

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Home Appliances Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
We have created Natede Regular starting from the concept of "Circular Design Economy", which refers to a sustainable design that has no impact on the planet. Natede is respectful to the environment in multiple ways: in its use of natural materials, in the lack of added harmful glues, and in its sustainable dismantling at the end of its lifecycle. Natede can capture and eliminate VOCs, viruses and bacteria, and it can significantly alleviate odors.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Natede has the most advanced sensors and it leverages a new photocatalytic filter, which does not need to be replaced, eliminating waste and extra expenses. Natede successfully eliminates 93% of VOCs, 99% of bacteria, viruses, fine-particulate and odors. Natede dimensions: 262mmx260mmx250mm Natede's stand: 334mmx334mmx360mm Weight: 2,5 kg/5,5 lbs Natede can purify up to 108 m3 in 9h. Its self-watering system capacity is 1lt. Energy consumption of Natede less than a LED Bulb, input 12V.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We have been testing our products and our technology with PNAT and LINV that proved the effectiveness of our system. FLUID DYNAMICS With fluid dynamics engineers, we perfected the airflow and improved the purification range (36m3 in 9h). PHOTOCATALYSIS Photocatalysis is a natural process by which the light strikes a mineral and activates a chemical process that securely and instantaneously oxidizes and decomposes the organic matter at the molecular level.

CHALLENGE:
Natede design wants to give a new identity to Air Purifiers, in fact the main goal was to deconstruct the archetype through a new identity of the object: a conjunction between Nature, Technology and Design.
