The Spiri

The Spiri is an innovative organic air filter, designed by Brunel University student Richard Jennions. A fan at the back of the unit pushes air to the four plant cartons, where it reaches the roots of the plant in the soil. The idea is that the roots remove the volatile organic chemicals from the air, which is then pushed out of the mechanism up into the breathing zone. Water is stored in a reservoir at the base of the unit to feed the plant over several days.
