Dyson's first humidifier uses ultraviolet light to kill bacteria

Dyson's humidifier pretreats water with ultraviolet light to kill waterborne bacteria

Dyson has launched its first humidifier, which uses ultraviolet light to kill waterborne bacteria before it is dispersed into the air.

The firm led by British industrial designer James Dyson says its first humidifier is more hygienic than any others on the market, killing 99.9 per cent of the bacteria in water before it enters the room. It claims to be the first humidifier to use ultraviolet light to cleanse water in this way.

“The problem with current humidifiers are that they harbour nasty bacteria which when the machine is turned on, is then blown around the room,” said Dyson in a statement. “Experts say it’s actually more dangerous to breathe in this bacteria than drink it!”



The Dyson humidifier is designed to alleviate symptoms of dry skin conditions and cold viruses brought on by dry winter weather conditions. It has also been developed to preserve home decoration, preventing cracked paintwork and peeling wallpaper.

Dyson's humidifier pretreats water with ultraviolet light to kill waterborne bacteria

Water from the three-litre water-tank in the base of the humidifier is fed into a smaller trough where it is exposed to ultraviolet light for three minutes, killing bacteria using what Dyson calls Ultraviolet Cleanse technology.




Once treated, the device uses electricity to vibrate the purified water at ultrasonic frequency – up to 1.7 million times a second – breaking it into tiny particles. The particles are then drawn into the curved head of the humidifier and projected into the air.

The humidifier then uses Air Multiplier technology – the same type of system used in the brand’s fan and heater collections – to disperse the mist evenly around a 16-square-metre area.

The loop-shaped amplifier has two outlets – one for mist at the front, and one at the rear for air – meaning the machine can also operate as a fan.

The machine can run for up to 18 hours off one tank of water, and has a built-in sleep timer which cuts the power when not in use. A quiet operating system prevents noise disturbance when used at night time.

A temperature and humidity gauge automatically adjusts the level of humidification, but it can also be manually adjusted between ten airflow settings using a magnetised remote control, which attaches to the side of the machine.

Dyson launched the humidifier in Tokyo today, ahead of the UK launch in March 2015.

Advances in digital technology could make "time travel possible"

Dezeen and MINI Frontiers: advanced 3D mapping of our built environment could one day allow us to “stop and rewind time,” claims London designer Keiichi Matsuda (+ movie).

Once digital mapping services such as Google Street View have become sophisticated enough, we could “jump to any single point in history since it was being recorded,” Matsuda suggests.

“If you take [Google Street View] to it’s logical conclusion it means that everything is live video,” he explains. “You’d have a live map of the world, essentially. If [the world] was all being recorded, you could stop time and you could rewind time as well.”

Virtual or augmented reality headsets, like Oculus Rift or Google Glass, could make the experience much more immersive than simply watching something on a screen. We could overlay the real city with digital footage from the past, Matsuda says, so that “essentially, time travel becomes possible.”



Matsuda originally studied architecture, but became disillusioned with the profession and now works in a variety of media to explore how new technologies affect our daily lives.

“Whenever a new technology comes out, I instantly start to think where that could lead to,” he explains. “You take it to its logical conclusion.”

Hyper-Reality by Keiichi Matsuda
A still from Keiichi Matsuda’s Hyper-Reality film

For the Dezeen and MINI Frontiers exhibition he produced a film looking at how ubiquitous augmented reality could transform the way we navigate cities, with signage and directions digitally superimposed onto the streets.

The exhibition took place at designjunction during London Design Festival from 17 to 21 September 2014.

Dezeen and MINI Frontiers is a year-long collaboration with MINI exploring how design and technology are coming together to shape the future.

Vino Veritas Oslo

vv_201014_07-940x626

Un altro bel posticino che merita una vista è Vino Veritas ad Oslo. Specializzato nella vendita di Vino biologico e tapas spagnole introduce l’ecologica gastronomia spagnola nella più importante città cosmopolita della Norvegia. Gli interni appena ridisegnati dallo studio Masquespacio fondono la cultura norvegese con quella andalusa come i tipici parapetti dei balconi, elementi decorativi come cestini e tende o delle piastrelle in argilla spagnola. L’artigianato più tradizionale è sempre presente anche per mezzo di lampade fatte a mano di rafia e corda. Le sedie danno un tocco di colore verde al ristorante mentre il legno di rovere massello usato per gli arredi offre l’eleganza necessaria in questo tipo di ristoranti. I cuscini sono stati disegnati direttamente da Masquespacio e aiutano ad evidenziare la sensazione deco dello spazio attorno.

Piet Hein Eek's first eyewear range debuts at Dutch Design Week

Dutch Design Week 2014: Eindhoven designer Piet Hein Eek has created a line of spectacles and sunglasses with frames made from two strips of titanium for Amsterdam brand More Eyewear.

For his first foray into eyewear, Piet Hein Eek teamed up with More Eyewear founder Jaap Bloemer to realise an idea based around a new frame design.



“His idea was to use only two lines for the top and bottom, with the temples in between,” Bloemer told Dezeen.

Aviator frames in gold

Each thin strip of lightweight titanium curves around the lenses, pinching together at the bridge and clasping the arms in between at the hinges.

The arms are twisted from horizontal at the joint to vertical so they sit comfortably over the ears.

“I’d never seen a frame like this, and two years later I realised why,” said Bloemer. “It’s extremely difficult to manufacture.”




The designer is launching two frames during Dutch Design Week that both implement the simple frame design.

On the Aviator model, the sections of frame above the lenses are extended out above the to create a more interesting profile.

The smaller Panto design has more elliptical lenses and arms that become thinner towards the ends.

“Everyone in the eyewear industry tries to make something new and people work on it all day and probably think too much about it,” Bloemer said. “This is a very simple idea: a frame out of two lines.”

Both designs are produced in gold, silver and copper, with lenses tinted to complement the frames. The Aviators also come in gun metal and blue, while the Pantos are available in dark green and dark brown.

The first 100 frames will be produced and sold as a limited edition in spring 2015. Two more shapes are also set to launch next year.

Hein Eek also designed cases for the products using pieces of salvaged scrap wood, which has been formed into boxes with sliding tops.

The prototype eyewear is on display at Piet Hein Eek’s studio and gallery, Halvemaanstraat 30, during Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, which continues until 26 October.

Hein Eek is also showing a collection of flat-pack stools with famous artworks printed on the top and a rug designed to fold over seating during the annual Dutch design event this week.
