VENTI / TAU
Prof. Gert Trauernicht

I believe that the placement of an air purifier and the space it occupies is a very important design priority for the home user, in addition to the purification performance. A home air purifier should perform adequately while taking up as little space as possible. This means wise use of interior volume, high-performance architecture, and most importantly, choosing the right location of placement.
With such principles in mind, I have developed two consolidated concepts. Concept 1 VENTI uses the space under the sofa or bed, and concept 2 TAU uses the space next to the sofa or bed. In addition, for the concept TAU, I have included the function of a side table/bedside table based on the basic shape and the location it is placed. It is very important that this function is not simply pasted onto the product, but is subtly and intuitively integrated. When the users are not using this function, it is not noticeable, and when they need it, it is immediately at hand.
Finally, VENTI & TAU should fit into any living room or bedroom without looking out of place and have a clean and appropriate aesthetic.
