As the launch of Wendy approaches, HWKN has collaborated with 2X4, Bruce Mau Design and Pentagram to produce tote bags and t-shirts coated in Titania Nanoparticles . HWKN claims that the Titania Nanoparticles will help to clean the air as you wear it. All profits from the sale go toward helping build Wendy this summer.



MoMA’s chief curator of architecture and design Barry Bergdoll says Wendy will be ”aesthetically unforgettable”, adding that, once built, it will look “amazing from the No. 7 train.” Beyond the project’s shock value, Bergdoll has noted how Wendy was born out of “months of sustained research” that yielded a prescient scheme that points towards “new directions for architecture in terms of material research, ecological responses, and recyclability.”

There are ways that you, too, can be involved in the Wendy project. Friends and graphic designers2×4Bruce Mau, and Pentagram have designed tote bags and t-shirts to the cause, each of which is emblazoned with striking graphics of Wendy and coated with the same titania nanoparticles that will clean the P.S. 1 courtyard this summer. The products, which are non-toxic, are available here and will be coming soon to all MoMA design stores. Buy some for you and your friends to jumpstart the nanoparticle revolution!
