Gallery: INTERACTIVE “LIVING GLASS” Regulates Air Quality

    I am also a current Interior Design Student very interested in innovative design. I am currently working on a project that may consist of products just like these. I would love to have information regarding these and I look forward to receiving updates.

    Thank you

    Hey, I’m a student studying Interior Design, and I would just like to congratulate you all on your efforts of inventing the new ” living glass” “air monitor?”! It is fascinating! Please keep me informed via mail on all your new inventions as I am a student interested in cutting edge things, new and modern and beyond the future products. I would really appreciate it if you keeped me informed as I am unsure of how often you guys invent/release, and I would definately (in the near future) consider you guys as my top suppliers for modern objects.

    Kind regards,
    Claudia Hobor
