More than just clean air

MATR is a small, powerful hybrid air purifier, featuring a removable air quality tracker. The purifier eliminates pollutants indoors while the portable air quality tracker helps you to avoid health-damaging air pollution outdoors.

Problem

1. Too large & heavy to be moved between rooms/locations
2. Millions of tons of filter waste going to landfill annually
3. Protected from harmful air indoors, what about outdoors?

Prototyping

In total around 80 prototypes were created, some entire builds, others of certain aspects of the design. Whether it was a filtration purifier with absolutely no design that was being sent to China for testing (to reduce copying) or a super detailed model to purely show aesthetics; each prototype had a substantial purpose. Turning that virtual design into something physical is something I have a lot of appreciation for and genuinely love.

Solution

A small, versatile purifier, utilised in multiple usage scenarios. Versatile form-factor: Because of it's small, lightweight design the purifier can be used in many situations, the most crucial being between home & work. Technology: This small-form-factor would be unachievable without the powerful patent-pending technology solution.

Manufacturer Sourcing in Shenzhen

Exploring manufacturing processes first hand & meeting the people that bring it all together was an unforgettable experience. Food was incredible too, including "inside-out fish, yummy.

Final Product

The final product is a device harnessing new technologies allowing it's user to breathe cleaner air and improve health.
