KUSHIM CARING DESIGN - SanLight & SanShoe

A revolutionary way of living safely and inhabiting spaces thanks to the latest technological innovations and scientific research

The design sector is preparing for the Fuorisalone Digital Edition 2021, from 12th-18th April. Milan’s most eagerly awaited event this year features “Forms of Living” as its central theme.

The KUSHIM CARING DESIGN project stems from the need to reflect on our living spaces and new requirements, in the light of the global challenges we are experiencing.

KUSHIM CARING DESIGN provides solutions for the natural sanitation of public and private premises. Experimental tests conducted under the guidance of Prof. Mara Biasin at the Immuno-Biology Laboratory of the Department of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences – L. Sacco, demonstrate that Kushim Technology is able to abate the viral load of SARS-CoV-2 inoculated in liquid phase on a surface.

Exposure of SARS-CoV-2 to air treated for 30 minutes with Kushim Technology, in a 28m3 environment showed 1 log (90%) reduction in viral load, which is greater than the natural decay of the virus verified in the control test, performer under the same conditions but without the use of Kushim technologyThe combined reaction of sanitised air by Uv-C light and the process of photocatalytic oxidation, together with an efficient filter makes it possible to destroy a range of pollutants, including bacteria, viruses, moulds and odours using an actively natural principle, which reduces the infectious load of confined spaces and the contamination potential of fixed surfaces.

KUSHIM CARING DESIGN technology is people-friendly and its application in the presence of people 24/7 is an important feature compared to other systems currently on the market. Being especially healthy for humans makes it uniquely commendable. 

KUSHIM CARING DESIGN offers an aesthetic and functional rethinking of systems, processes and furnishing accessories for everyday use, combined with the latest scientific and technological advancements, which are demonstrated in two brand new products: the SanLight and the SanShoe.

SanLight is a floor or countertop LED lamp in a minimalist design, equipped with an internal device that sanitises the air circulating in indoor settings. SanLight is available in two versions that suit different types of living and working spaces, depending on the air volume to be treated: SanLight 200 is capable of sanitising up to 200 cubic metres of air per hour, while SanLight 700 can process up to 700 cubic metres of air per hour.

SanShoe is a shoe storage cabinet in a clean, linear style, specially designed for the sanitation of women’s, men’s and children’s shoes. Thanks to a new sanitising compartment and technique shoes placed inside are treated individually using a dedicated nozzle, while the soles are bathed in a stream of sanitising air. In just one 45-minute cycle, the footwear is completely sanitised and can be used more safely in living and working areas. This shoe cabinet can be used as a single element or recomposed by stacking several elements..

SanLight - Pathogen Inactivating LED Lamp

Beginning during the pandemic emergency from a suggestion by Dr. Elisa Vicenzi, SanLight is a floor or countertop LED lamp in a minimalist design, equipped with an internal device that sanitises the air circulating in indoor settings. Two different switches control the light and the sanitizing device that can be used simoultaneously or separately. SanLight is available in two versions that suit different types of living and working spaces, depending on the air volume to be treated: SanLight 200 is capable of sanitising up to 200m3 of air per hour, while SanLight 700 can process up to 700m3 of air per hour. SanLight is equipped with a nature-based system combining different technologies that address a number of issues: on the one hand, synthetic Uv-C lamps act on the surrounding air in the same way as Uv-C in sunlight, illuminating the biological material of viruses made up of RNA and DNA. The action of the light breaks up the bonds making up the genetic material of the pathogens and allows the formation of secondary bonds which prevent its proper functioning, thereby blocking the ability of viruses to replicate, as is well demonstrated in recent studies by the Italian National Institute of Astrophysics, in collaboration with the University of Milan (research results are available on the contagio.online/livestreaming website). On the other hand, this technology also consists of a catalyst structure, made of a metal alloy with a honeycomb matrix, mainly composed of TiO2 (titanium dioxide) and other noble metals, through which the air is treated. This process forms hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) which, when diffused in a confined setting, allows for safe and effective sanitation of the exposed air.
