elegant embellishments ltd displayed their ‘prosolve 370e’ as part of the dmy allstars exhibition at DMY design festival 09.

the air cleaning quasicrystalline structure is based on an innovative derivative of five-fold symmetries. they are assembled from only two module types to yield highly complex structures. as functional ornamentation, they increase the efficacy of the photocatalytic tio02 coating in the decomposition of air pollution. prosolve370e was first shown as part of ‘updating germany’: projects for a better future at the german pavillion, 11th architecture biennale venice 2008.

ee’s tiles respond to the priorities set by the EU clean air strategy 2005; the policy will reduce pollution deaths by over 100 000, and air pollution related damages by up to 45 billion euros annually. emissions from combustion engines are identified as the largest contributor to air pollution in cities and often invisibly affect our breathable air. the tiles, when positioned near pollutant sources, can re-appropriate these polluted spaces for safe pedestrian use.
