Living chandelier with algae-filled leaves purifies the air

London-based designer and engineer, Julian Melchiorri, created the world’s first bionic chandelier that not only lights up the room, but also actively purifies the air. The ‘Exhale’ Chandelier features glass leaves filled with green algae that absorb CO2 and release oxygen.
Currently on display at the V&A Museum for London Design Week.
