Bio-safety aspirator for a post-pandemic dining experience.
Finalist Covid-19 Innovation Grant International Design Awards
Airwal has been specifically designed to avoid the risk of contagions and the spread of infections during the pandemic and post-pandemic times, taking into account the physical and psychological health of the users fighting against the effects of isolation. Indeed, during the quarantine period, people are fighting against the physical and psychic effects of isolation. Researchers stated that isolation can be as damaging as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. I decided to solve this problem during such an unprecedented moment which is greatly limiting our moments of shared interactions. The inspiration for our solution is represented by the scientists and biologists working in labs with the constant risk of exposure to harmful substances such as airborne in a particulate form. We combined the bio-safety cabinet and the cooking hoods concept in a product which can be integrated into any kind of environment.
