The breathable barrier is designed to stop CO2 emissions right at the source. Utilizing a honeycomb system of interconnected moss, which survives by absorbing nutrients and water from the air, the panels act as a filter and collect emissions particles before they can make it into the local environment.

This design is a winner of the 2018 Red Dot Design Concept Award.

Designers: Hsuan Ting Huang & Tsung Ying Hsieh
