0205, Woobi Play Anti-Pollution Mask, 2017

This anti-pollution mask consists of a translucent plastic bubble covering the mouth and nose. On either side, brightly colored filters deliver clean air. Designed for children, the mask allows the user's face to remain visible. An engaging booklet tells the story of wearing Woobi. The current model doesn't block smell, but odor filters could be developed in the future. The mask is displayed two ways: disassembled and assembled. Designed by Kilo.
