Fresh air has become more scarce with the continued, rapid urbanization in many countries, particularly China. Recent issues with smog and germs have even forced residents to wear masks for their protection.
The first wearable air purifier concept we encountered was the Hand Tree, which was basically a bracelet that purified air for its wearer. The Ohita Fresh Air modules are somewhat similar, since they’re wearable, too, although not around your wrist or directly on your person, for that matter.
The Ohita could be attached to bag straps or belts instead, where it will purify air so you can breathe fresher, cleaner air as you go along. Its modular kinetic sculpture design also makes it perfect for displaying and installing in your home, where it will provide the same function and clean up the air in your home.
The Ohita was designed by Jorge Alberto Treviño Blanco and is a semi-finalist for the 2013 Electrolux Design Lab. Like with the Hand Tree, it’s not clear how feasible the design would be to implement, but it’s an interesting concept nonetheless.
