Missaglia tiles makes you forget air purifying towers

When creating the Missaglia tiles, Studio Volpi paid close attention to aesthetics. Giving the panels a rounded shape that can seamlessly merge into any scheme.

On the design front, the Studio concentrated on giving it a smooth and natural-looking shape that would blend seamlessly into any interior.

Each one features a specially conceived fabric designed to capture and destroy most pollutants, bacteria, and viruses that might be looming in the ambient air.

Studio Volpi describes it as “kind of secular flypaper effect” that traps and disaggregates the polluting agents in the air.

A super USP when it comes to Missaglia tiles is the fact that they don’t need batteries. Instead, the tiles work, by quietly hanging in a room.

It takes approximately 4 hours for a set of tiles to completely filter the air within an average-sized room. 1 square meter of fabricmeterpurify the air in a 30 square meters room, in about 4 hours. And that for a period going from 12 to 18 months.

The fabric, called The Breath®, is capable of acting on substances such as formaldehyde, allergens, bacteria, and viruses. It also absorbs and eliminates odors from food and cleaning agents.

An original solution to a healthy lifestyle

“From the onset of the current pandemic, we’ve witnessed a surge in the offer of the most diverse contraptions claiming to be able to free your living or working quarters from the deadly virus,” says Studio Volpi.

“Most come in the shape of more/less high-tech-looking electric fans to which some kind of filtration has been applied.” 

Messaglia tiles go against the grain with a different option altogether. After all, Studio Volpi’s first objective was to enhance its credibility through scientific evidence, whilst differentiating it from fan-based solutions.
