I am so happy to share with you that jewelry becomes more and more intertwined with sustainability, and that sustainable jewelry makes a part of the best museums’ collections!
Smog Free Ring is now in Stedelijk Museum Art Collection (Amsterdam)! That means that I have at home a piece of art because I was among the first backers on the Kickstarter of this amazing idea! Wooohoo! But let me tell you more about this project.
Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde and his team of experts have created the world’s largest smog vacuum cleaner. The Smog Free Tower uses patented ion technology to produce smog-free air in public space, allowing people to breathe and experience clean air for free. The Smog Free Tower equipped with environment-friendly and patented ozon free ion technology cleans 30.000m3 per hour without ozon, runs on green wind energy and uses no more electricity than a waterboiler (1170 watts).
Creating a tangible souvenir, Roosegaarde designed Smog Free Rings, Smog Free Cubes and Smog Free Cufflinks of compressed smog particles.
By sharing Smog Free Jewellery, you, actually, donate 1000m3 of clean air to the city.
The Smog Free Project is not only intended to be a local solution for parks, but also an inspirational experience of a clean future. Along with governments, NGOs, pro-bicycle campaigns and the clean-tech industry, people can work together to make a whole city smog free.
Isn’t it amazing?
The Stedelijk Museum acquired a Smog Free Ring as a part of Dream Out Loud, a group exhibition that explores one of today’s most relevant topics: social design.
