“Innovator of the Year” Creates Biodegradable Algae Solar Panels That Clean The Air- Sustainable Stories- Nisha Designs

The largest source of planet-warming emissions is energy consumption for industrial and domestic purposes. According to The International Energy Agency, two-thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions are associated with fossil fuel use for electricity, transportation, heating, and industry.

Fortunately, Adán Ramirez Sánchez, a 23-year-old Mexican biotechnologist, found a solution in algae. His invention – Intelligent Solar Biopanels made of microalgae and carbon nanoparticles – generates clean energy and oxygen while absorbing carbon dioxide. Meaning, they combine nature with technology to clean the air while generating electricity.

The system work by taking advantage of the natural process by which plants, some bacteria, and algae produce energy and organic matter (known as photosynthesis) using carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and sunlight.

The green, semi-transparent triangular Biopanels, manufactured by Mr. Sánchez’s company GreenFluidics, measure one meter on each side. They are aesthetically pleasing and practical; so, they can be placed almost anywhere (windows, walls, roofs, and any surface that gets sun) and can even be used to make works of art.

The Biopanels are entirely biodegradable and made of an abundant renewable marine material, a fresh contrast to current solar panels on the market, which generate landfills when they’re discarded.

They also produce biomass, which can make secondary products like fertilizer and contribute further to a circular economy model.

Mr. Sánchez plans to eventually install sensors in the solar panels that can monitor the environment. Like this, they’ll become part of a network that provides data to address climate change.

He also envisions them being used in the colonization of Mars. He sees GreenFluids as the first Mexican space biotechnology-oriented company.

The Biopanels can be used on Mars to produce energy, create oxygen safely, and provide sustenance (the algae biomass) for astronauts and space settlers.

Taurus Design Collection- Nisha Designs

Nisha Designs: Our Taurus Collection was awarded the first prize🥇: We share this today even though this design was designed back in 1999 our designs are timeless, magickal, evergreen and hold a very special place in the universe through eternity.

Our theme was to design on Astrological signs for our final year of college. To create a room only with this sign. I got Taurus. And we chose to use the alchemical symbol of a Taurus for our presentation. Color given to us for the theme was rose quartz, pink shades as one of the crystals that belongs to taurus is Rose quartz. And we had to design 3 surface patterns that can be used for any application and how we have used these designs in what application was to be determined the winner. As they wanted to grade us on our skills to see how we implement a design to its best aesthetics and not just design to design as a commodity to make money but how do we see it as a value that we would bring onto this planet were our parameters. Yes back in the days thinking about our planet and what we bring to it was important (which we have lost in today’s world the thought) Testing our visualization skills, composition style of a design. And mind you that time all designs were hand painted into repeats, no computers were available. How to make a design useful. Very important aesthetic and visualizing skills required to understand the element, it’s presence and value it brings to ones space, to this planet is an important skill as textile artist/designer that knowledge which only comes from within. No one can teach you that. Would test our intuitive awareness as a designer too. The building block of a composition of a design determines how it works with planet earth. This is our first design. This pattern was used in a burn out sheer application. It was beautiful and gorgeous.

Greenery and nature come face to face with animal force- STK Restaurant in Olomouc- Nisha Designs

STK Restaurant in Olomouc, Czech Republic

Olomouc Steak Restaurant

Steak restaurant housed in a former car repair shop.

Spontaneity, raw materials, pristine nature and above all – meat. The best steaks in the city of Olomouc.

STK Restaurant in Olomouc, Czech Republic

Ten years back, you would have come here to have your vehicle inspection certificate stamped. Entering the place, you would have covered your ears to escape the noise of the roaring car engines and watched the mechanics checking clutches and brakes. As the shift ended and the chaps clocked out to leave for home all hungry, they might have been dreaming about one kind of meal.

The juicy steak they would eat seated at a solid wood table supported by raw steel legs. Greenery and nature come face to face with animal force. That’s the core of Steak Restaurant’s (STK) interior, housed in a former car repair shop which gave the steakhouse its name.

Olomouc Steak Restaurant design by Komplits

STK in Olomouc emphasises simplicity and quality, both in its food and its interior. Instead of trying to deny and erase its greasy automobile heritage, the place embraces it. The 320 square metres of the restaurant authentically engage individual elements of its past.

This is evident from the materials, which include raw metal sheets, black steel and rebars. We even turned a seemingly problematic layout into an advantage, transforming bearing walls in narrow spaces into a vertical garden and a platform for a barbecue.

Dominating the space are two huge steel bulls – the owner’s wish and a clear message to guests about the type of cuisine they should expect. In STK, heavy elements merge with nature. Willow branches wrap themselves around the tables and climb the walls, rising up to the ceiling and over the bulls’ heads.

STK Restaurant in Olomouc design by Komplits

Formed from solid oak boards, the tables have a rough hewn appearance and irregularly shaped steel legs. Here and there, plants spring from the ceiling and walls, changing the interior’s look with each new leaf that sprouts. Cowhide covering one of the walls and woven rope complete the signature style of the steakhouse.

About Komplits

Why do all houses, flats, offices, schools, hotels or tables out there look similar, when we have unlimited fantasy and possibilities? That was Komplits’ starting point, a belief uniting its members. They like exploring the roads not taken. A new day brings a new idea, shape or use of material. “But this is a material for fences! Well – we’ll make a chandelier from it”. Based in Olomouc, a city that encourages creativity, a team of architects, design and civil engineers take Pavel Kříž’s fantastic universes from paper and transform them into reality.

We create our own worlds. Houses, restaurants, schools, hotels and offices. But also desks, lighting, a bar or a hanger. One clear signature style and plenty of room for imagination. The more we hear something is impossible, the more excited we get about it.
