Kengo Kuma Artfully Tackles Air Pollution with Huge Origami Sculpture

Kengo Kuma Artfully Tackles Air Pollution with Huge Origami Sculpture

Globally-acclaimed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma teamed up with 3D experience company Dassault Systèmes to create a whirling origami sculpture for Milan Design Week 2018. Titled breath/ng, the installation is made of 175-square meters of a groundbreaking fabric called breath technology made by Anemotech. More precisely, the textile is equipped with a “nano-molecule activated core” that absorbs and splits harmful molecules, reported designboom. As a whole, the large-scale artwork is capable of absorbing 90,000 cars worth of pollution.

Get a closer look at the sculpture above and visit Kengo Kuma’s official website to view more projects. For more boundary-pushing designs, check out our full Milan Design week 2018 coverage.
