Your clean air may reside on a tree in a bubble

Air purification systems are often seen as either ugly little devices meant to clear the air or gimmicks that rely on you hoping something is actually happening to work. French designer Mathieu Lehanneur aims to change that with a new filtration system called the Bel-Air. Developed alongside Harvard scientist David Edwards, the Bel-Air uses leaves and roots of a plant to the the pollutants from the air you breathe and purify it. Basically, it’s like having your own personal tree for air but inside a glass capsule.

While currently still a prototype, the Bel-Air is expected to go into production in 2009.
