Project description:
Titanium, silicon, air is a collection of objects which affect the quality of indoor air, purifying it, regulating humidity and temperature. The main medium used in the project are fabrics, reinforced with substances which increase the efficiency of the processes. Their effects are as natural as possible. Both titanium oxide and silica gel penetrate the structure of the material, creating subtle and aesthetically pleasing solutions. At the same time, they can become the background for the life of the household or the subject of everyday rituals. The objects designed in this way emphasize the importance of air quality and how it is influenced by the materials we surround ourselves with.
