London – BioBombola by ecoLogicStudio is an eco-driven household kit that invites individuals, families and communities to cultivate their own algae garden.
Designed to bring nature and wellbeing into the home, BioBombola allows households to grow and harvest their own spirulina. Each kit includes a one-metre tall lab grade glass container filled with 15 litres of living photosynthetic spirulina. Its air piping system and small air pump keep the algae afloat while pumping fresh oxygen into the surrounding environment. Both sustainable and effective, the algae output also delivers edible vegetable protein.
‘We believe that this product will [help to] redesign some of the logic that led us to the current health crisis,' explain Claudia Pasquero and Marco Poletto, founders of ecoLogicStudio. 'If we, collectively, transform air pollutants into highly nutritious aliments there will be fewer opportunities for viruses to exploit unsustainable food supply chains and for polluted atmospheres to reach and attach to us.’
The benefits of algae are increasingly apparent – not only for interior and urban air cleaning but also as an edible source of nutrients.
