We believe that breathing cleaner air can foster better relationships and that technology can improve our well-being. We have created Airlite, a revolutionary technology that applies like a normal paint: it reduces air pollutants, reduces unpleasant odours, fights the growth of mould and bacteria and prevents dirt from settling on the walls, while keeping rooms cool, reducing need of energy consumption for air conditioning and CO2 emissions.
We have always been told that we should leave the world in better conditions than we found it.We consider something that we living beings take for granted: air. And we immediately assume that every living thing prefers to breathe clean air rather than badly polluted air. What if paint could clean the air? Studies show that every square meter painted with Airlite cleans the same amount of air as one square meter of forest.
Every day the pollution makes us sick. Everyday we breathe poisons that come from furniture (formaldehyde) from cooking food(nitrogen oxides), from humans and animals (bacteria). At school we learned that the tree, through a chemical process, converts carbon dioxide into other substances, such as oxygen. Airlite works in the same way, but it does not emit oxygen: it simply purifies the air, turning poisons into harmless elements and killing bacteria.
Intelligent architecture will be needed as a response to climate change, poor air quality and frequent and irregular weather events. The future requires a lot from every product we use in our homes: roofs that generate heat, walls that breathe to allow the airflow to travel within spaces, that turn into an air purifier and other innovations that will allow us to improve our lives.
