FABBRICA DELL'ARIA - LOMBARDINI22
Pnat has realized a site-specific installation of the Air Factory in the office of Lombardini22, one of the leading architecture firms in Italy. Our intervention is part of a renewal of the studio’s workspace.
Thanks to its revolutionary system of air purification through plants, the Air Factory allows employees to breathe pure air while working indoor. In fact, the registered technology Stomata© amplifies plants’ ability to absorb and degrade both inorganic air pollutants (carbon dioxide, nitrogen compounds, fine dust …) and organic (the VOCs). In addition, the biophilic design and the massive presence of plants enhance environmental comfort, offering an ideal set for working acitivities and restorative breaks.
Biophilic design adds plants and nature in every built environment in order to produce benefits and provide wellbeing to inhabitants. Biophilic workspaces generate values for the employees and the clients. Contact with plants promotes well-being in the workplace, produces lower stress levels, improves health (reducing sick days) and promotes creativity and productivity of the employees (Largo-Wight, et al., 2011).
