Photocatalysis is process that uses nano-particles and Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) to clean VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds). When exposed to any ultraviolet light source, such as the sun, the treatment oxidative property decomposes harmful organic substances such as viruses, bacteria and mildews on its surface. In addition, the hydro and oleophobic nature of the coating causes water that comes into contact to form an even layer, thereby allowing the dust and dirt that have accumulated on the surface to be washed away. These two properties of the creates the "self-cleaning" effect. While this process was revolutionary as an architectural material it is very limited to UV rays which are harmful in long term exposure to human skin. We have come up with a new compound creating the same cleansing effect. What this offer as an advantage is that the activation process only needs any source of light and natural air to start the process. This can be done with any present interior/exterior lighting and air from natural wind or even air condition units, thus eliminating any direct exposure to UV rays. This specialized coating can be applied to any surface and is Non-toxic and Bio-degradable.
Our design, started life as a tribute the amazing rolling hills of Guilin in China. The design has a rectangular base that is embedded with LED lighting and 5mm acrylic panels (I call them the Hills!) in variety of texture and finishes can be placed freely on top of the grooves situated on the base. Once the light is switched on the acrylic laser engraved grooves will absorb the vertical illumination. All the “hills” are photocatalytic treated thus cleansing your environment during day and night.
It is the world first environment cleansing lighting system that transforms any architectural space. Movable freely as we want to empower your inner artistic talent. Be free to create, illuminate and contribute to a better environment for our present and future generations.
GRADIENT VIOLET- This is our special patent version that emits a beautiful gradient violet hue that resembles a romantic sunset. All the lighting and acrylic material has no coloring and it our special invention to incorporate this process that is unique in the world.
