What It Does

Natural purifier for ventilation :
Sun shower sprinkles artificial rain in front of the window to purify the air penetrating waterfall

The Inspiration

Facing unavoidable risks to health everyday happens in East Asia with critical air pollution that is too severe to ignore.
But staying enclosed home with air purifier is even worse. Ventilation is the best way to improve air condition but could be unwilling to the asian to open their window toward deep grey sky that seems obviously contaminated. sprinkles artificial rain in front of the window to purify the air penetrating waterfall so people can open window and ventilate air freely.

How It Works

First, Install the Sun shower adjusting height of owner's window.
Air quality sensor facing outside detects density of ultrafine particles and control water pressure automatically.
Than, Sun shower starts to pour water and purifies air coming into the house.
Water circulates continuously and acts as a natural filter. When water become too cloudy, user can replace it through water tank replacement.

Stages of Development

We have designed this product based on the insight that air can not be completely purified by simply using air purifiers in an enclosed space.
We chose a drop of water as the best way to purify the air at the same time as the ventilation, and designed a new air purifier that can be combined with the window frame by choosing the window to implement it.
Sun shower is designed for sliding-type windows that are mainly used in East Asia and has been designed with motifs in their tile roofs.
The roof shape of sun shower is designed not only for formability, but also for the functionality of water drop.

Novelty

1. Using natural circulation of air
The most important thing in getting clear air is the circulation of air. Sun shower can provide more fresh air than conventional air purifiers because of continuous ventilation.

2. Design that resolving the paradox of design electricity
While we use air purifiers to consume electricity, one of the main causes of air pollution is power generation. Sun shower offers maximum air cleaning effect with minimal power.

3. Do not use artificial filters
Filters used in air purifiers are made of synthetic resins that are difficult to recycle, which adversely affects the environment. Sun shower is more environmentally friendly by using the water itself as a filter.

Future Plans

We want to connect the IOT platform with Sun shower so that users can measure the quality of indoor and outdoor air whenever and wherever, and intuitively judge the quality of the indoor and outdoor air so that the air purifier can operate freely. To create this, we are developing an app for smartphones.
In addition, we will work with engineers to produce specific hardware mock-ups to optimize air cleaning capabilities by precisely measuring water volumes.
