Neoplants uses bioengineering and directed evolution to create the first plant built to fight air pollution—the Neo P1. The world’s most efficient natural air purification system, the Neo P1 is more effective than up to thirty of the most popular houseplants in capturing and recycling harmful VOCs from indoor air.
A PLANT & POT BUILT TO FIGHT INDOOR AIR POLLUTION
SCOPE OF WORK:
MATERIAL EXPLORATION, SOURCING & TESTING
DFM | ENGINEERING SUPPORT | MANUFACTURING
Neoplants challenged the M4 team to explore recycled and bio-based resins to support the design of the “Shell” Pot, developed to maximize airflow and simplify the maintainance of the plant. The ideal material would maximize durability, while delivering the right aesthetic and story.
Flax was selected as the production material, based on its beautiful texture, suitability for the design and low carbon output. Flax polymer is made from agricultural waste, blended with other plant-based polymers to produce the optimal characteristics for manufacturing. As a domestically sourced material, it also offers a low carbon impact in shipping.
