living chandelier

Exhale, a beautiful live, breathing chandelier created by Melchiorri, definitely earned all of the praises it has received to far. Not only does it brighten the space, but it also helps to purify the air around it at the same time. During the event, a chandelier was shown that was constructed out of 70 glass leaves packed with green algae, which absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen, making it the ideal environmentally friendly light for our times. The Exhale Bionic Chandelier has been added to the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Founder and CEO of Arborea, Melchiorri and his team have been working on developing the BioSolar Leaf for the past four years. The BioSolar Leaf is made up of micro-algae, phytoplankton, and microscopic plants that are planted along solar-panel-like structures that can be installed in urban areas on rooftops and along the sides of buildings where they can produce not only to clean the air, but also to provide electricity.

Bio Solar Leaf’s generation of oxygen is predicted to be 100 times more than that produced by an acre of forest. It will have the positive effect that practical, sustainable solutions can have on our planet.

“Air pollution is one of London’s most pressing problems, and Imperial College is dedicated to developing sustainable and resilient solutions to this danger,” said Professor Neil Alford of Imperial College. It is an excellent chance to demonstrate the potential of Cleantech via our cooperation with Arborea.”

In his own words, Melchiorri says, “When I established Arborea, my aim was to combat climate change while also tackling important problems relating to the food system.” This pilot plant will create environmentally friendly, nutritious food additives while also cleaning the air, generating oxygen, and eliminating carbon dioxide from the surrounding environment,” says the company.
