In an attempt to clean up the smog in China, as well as highlight the dangers of air pollution, the Smog Free Tower has arrived in Beijing.
Supported by the Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection and designed by Studio Roosegaarde, the tower opened in China at the weekend in Beijing 751 D.Park, marking the start of its grand China tour.
The Smog Free Project consists of the Smog Free Tower and Smog Free Jewellery. Dutch artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde and his team of designers and experts have been developing the project at Studio Roosegaarde since 2013 and after its successful pilot in Rotterdam, the project is now starting a tour across the globe.
The seven-metre-high Smog Free Tower is the largest air purifier in the world. It creates a bubble of clean air giving citizens “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 per cent 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.
The Smog Free Ring and Smog Free Cufflinks are made from compressed smog particles collected from the Smog Free Tower. By sharing a Smog Free Ring, people donate 1000m3 of clean air.
The Smog Free Project was inspired by Roosegaarde’s travels in China and 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. More than 80 per cent of people in urban areas are exposed to air quality levels that exceed World Health Organization limits.
It is part of Roosegaarde’s larger Landscapes of the Future.
“Smog Free Project is about the dream of clean air and the beginning of a journey towards smarter cities,” said Roosegaarde. “I am delighted to bring the Smog Free Project to the heart of the bustling creative community in Beijing and look forward to developing more joint ideas and solutions.”
Roosegaarde recently won the Airbnb Design Innovation Medal at London’s Design Festival.
The Design Innovation Medal, supported by British Land and Airbnb, celebrates the achievements of designers who are “making a significant difference to our lives through their innovation, originality and imagination.”
