Krion K · Life: creating a healthy environment in Futura’s points of sale in Mexico

Krion Futura


The current rhythm of life, industrial activities and the use of harmful materials in means of transport negatively influence the biological balance of the environment in which we live. Increasingly, pollution and contamination raise the health alarm in many cities. Mexico is a clear example of a contaminated city whose pollution has recently led the government to activating the Environmental Crisis Plan.

The transport stations, especially bus stations, are one of the black spots in terms of pollution. These spaces contain high concentrations of NOX from the combustion of motor vehicles. These high levels are harmful to both the environment and to people’s health.

Futura, a transport company from Mexico, has wanted to contribute to improving air quality for its points of sale. To achieve this, Futura has refurbished some of its stands with Krion K·Life, whose Keast technology has the ability to purify the air, due to the photocatalytic effect of the material. An essential quality in spaces in the transport sector.

Future points of sale: The project

The new Futura ticket points of sale in Mexico have used KrionTM K·Life Snow White East 1100 sheets, in the 3680x760x12 format. This material is capable of improving air quality, so it not only has beneficial effects on the environment, but also on the people who actually come into contact with it.

Its thermocurving property has allowed the WorkShop fabricator to give dynamic shapes to the station, mixing the K·Life pure white with the corporate pink from the company. The lights, strategically placed, enhance the feeling of movement of the stand.

The ease of cleaning presented by KrionTM, provided by its zero porosity and the absence of joints, contribute to making both the maintenance and the hygiene of the space more efficient. One more step in the search for user wellness.

The result is a cutting-edge design space created with a functional and healthy material. A small, but very important step to improve the people’s quality of life.
