We all know that plants help to provide us with oxygen via photosynthesis, which makes the design “Osgène” all the more creative – because it is a home air purifier that mimics a plant. Visually recreating a plant that starts out pre-bloom with closed “leaves” and opens up depending on desired capacity, it uses carbon dioxide scrubbers to perform artificial photosynthesis and releases purified air.
You can set Osgène to filter in different modes: Comfort, Normal, or Busy. These are based on your activity or how many people are in a room, allowing it to filter and release with lesser or greater capacity. The more intense the mode, the more Osgène’s leaves will open, much like a plant does as it opens and closes its stomata. This is what makes Osgène’s design particularly creative, and sets it apart from commonly used home air purifiers like the Coway “Mighty” Air Purifier or the Electrolux “Oxygen Ultra”.
Also setting it apart is its interactive touch, bringing it out of sleep mode with a brush of the hand. Touch-control like this is less common in air purifiers; although one popular, if much smaller, touch-control purifier is also shaped like a living thing (The PDXD “Mushroom”). You also need to water Osgène like a plant, which helps it to operate.
This filter is perfect for all kinds of users, from singles to families to smokers to the elderly. Certainly beautiful and functional, we hope to see Osgène grow from concept to complete market product.
