Smog Free Project

SMOG FREE PROJECT is a series of urban innovations led by Daan Roosegaarde to show the beauty of clean air. As a tangible souvenir, Roosegaarde creates SMOG FREE RINGS made from the compressed smog particles collected from the SMOG FREE TOWER. By sharing the SMOG FREE RING you donate a 1000 m3 of clean air to the city.

Smog Free Ring

The SMOG FREE RING contains smog collected from Beijing and Rotterdam and is handmade at Studio Roosegaarde. SMOG FREE RING is part of the art collection of Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, but also as engagement or wedding ring by couples all over the world. The profit of the SMOG FREE RING sales is used to develop more smog free solutions.

SMOG FREE TOWER, SMOG FREE RING and SMOG FREE BICYCLE provide a local solution of clean air in public spaces. Here along with governments, students and the clean-tech industry, people can work together to make a whole city smog free.
