A personal journey of three years that was started by Marie Kondo's book, the life changing magic of tidying up. First ripple effect: reading The life changing magic of not givinf a f**k by Sarah Knight.
The life changing magic of tidying up It all started with Marie Kondo’s book, 'the life-changing magic of tidying up', in January 2015. I am not even sure any more how i came across the book. Probably searching for ideas on Pinterest, or maybe it was a recommendation by Amazon - recommendation algorithms these days are sometimes so good that it’s freaky. What I remember however is, that I was facing a difficult career decision at the time. I was about to turn 34, working for a multinational company as a application manager.

This journey began with the SMOG FREE RING. It is a cool concept by the Dutch design studio Roosegaarde. The idea behind each ring is that inside of the transparent cube there's a blob of condensed smog, which is collected via outdoor air filters. The profits from the sales of such cubes are reinvested in order to create more of such filtering machines.
I liked the concept a lot, but the kind of ring they make to put this cubes on isn't exactly my style... Therefore I decided to buy only the cube and 3D-print the ring of my own design. In this specific case, my own design would imply heavy use of the somewhat cliché Voronoi-tesselated mesh, which is not easily doable outside of the scope of additive manufacturing.
