Olivia Bradateanu, an industrial designer from Montclair, NJ, has created a concept air purifier design she calls the 'FLO2.' The air purifier uses photosynthesis, a natural process that plants use to convert water, and carbon dioxide to oxygen and sugar using light.
The leaf-shaped air purifier is small and movable. Its curved shape and inviting lines are evidence that it is designed to be touched.
