Air-Cleaning Bionic Tiles by Ceracasa

Ceracasa‘s groundbreaking Bionic Tiles are a ceramic product capable of cleaning the air by breaking down harmful pollutants. The tiles are treated with a titanium dioxide glaze that breaks down nitrous oxide in the presence of sunlight and humidity through a photocatalytic process. In order to maximize the tiles’ air-cleaning capability the ceramics feature a biomimetic structure modeled after the leaves of trees – you can see tiny rivulets and crannies in the tiles’ surface that serve to trap pollutants.
