This air purifier uses a plasma field to catch the germs and pollutants that your regular purifier can’t





Going above and beyond anything your HEPA-based air purifiers can do (or even some of the UV ones), OneLife X uses plasma-field technology to purify the air… yes, the same plasma energy found in our sun. The OneLife X traps and eliminates 99.99% of all airborne particles, catching particles as small as 0.01 micrometers (that’s 10 times smaller than the Coronavirus), and runs indefinitely without ever requiring a filter replacement.

As OneLife CEO Christoph Burkhardt rather astutely puts it, “If you don’t have an air purifier, you ARE the air purifier”. Aside from relying on your eyes to see dust in the air, or your nose to correctly pick up on any gases, there’s really no way of telling if the air you’re breathing is polluted/unhealthy or not. The truth is that indoor air is almost always more unhealthy than the air outdoors, sometimes by a factor of 5 to 10 times… and unless you’ve got a great air purifier working round the clock to catch those unhealthy particles and toxins, chances are your lungs are catching them instead.

Eliminates 99.99% of airborne particles without the need to replace the filter ever.

Uses a high-precision laser sensor that detects particles as small as 1 micrometer, then the plasma technology removes particles down to 0.01 micrometers.

Burkhardt’s OneLife has devoted its efforts to building the most effective air purification technologies. OneLife’s magnum opus is the plasma field tech, which, as it turns out, is MUCH more effective than a HEPA filter, and healthier than an ionizing purifier. It’s extremely sustainable too, as the filters never need replacement, and can easily be cleaned under a running tap or a dishwasher. The OneLife X uses the same plasma field to purify the air rapidly and quietly, operating at a mere 25 decibels. It’s a whole lot cheaper to run too, with an operational cost of just $6 annually, unlike HEPA-based purifiers that can cost hundreds of dollars in replacement filters every year.

The entire purifier fits in a compact, easy-to-carry design that should remind you of the Apple Mac Pro computer. The OneLife X comes with an outer body made from a curved bamboo plank, with the filter being fitted inside, leaving a gap on the top and the bottom to act as handles as well as for air to pass through. The inner filter mass can swivel forwards and backwards, allowing you to ‘point’ the purifier’s outlet anywhere you want, and the OneLife X can even work kept sideways.

Air from the OneLife X travels from the inlet at the bottom, and comes out through the outlet at the top. As the air passes through the purifier unit, it first goes through a series of lasers that catch even the tiniest of suspended particles (sort of like something out of Mission Impossible), after which, the plasma field charges up particles as small as 0.01 microns, which then finally get trapped by the catching plates that magnetically attract them.

The catching plates can be removed when the purifier’s switched off, and cleaned under running water or even in a dishwasher. The water washes the particles off, making the plate as good as new, and allowing your OneLife X to work at peak performance yet again.

The purifier comes in a choice between two colors – black or grey, with three operational modes – a hassle-free Auto mode, a quiet Night Mode, and a Boost mode that can purify the air in a 270 sq. ft. room at record speeds.

The OneLife X can be operated via a simple control panel on the appliance, or even through the OneLife X app, which shows you your current air quality broken down by PM level as well as VOC level, as well as sending warnings during events like pollen season, wildfires, or dust clouds. You can set up multiple purifiers in different rooms of the house, getting a detailed analysis of the air quality in each room, and integration with Apple’s HomeKit means the OneLife X can easily become a reliable part of your smart-home network.

IKEA furniture gets smarter with this air purifier disguised as a side table!

IKEA’s STARKVIND smart air purifier brings the promise of affordability and minimalism to the most important home appliance pandemic hit times can do with.

Breathing clean indoor air is crucial more than anything else with the COVID-19 menace lurking around. Air purifiers are the best bet to keep safe from harm’s way, and more so for people allergic to air pollutants. Reason enough for the Swedish furniture giant to try its luck with air purifiers. The brand is expanding its mushrooming smart home appliance lineup with an air purifier which is a sublime combination of design and technology. Dyson and Mila better watch out!

The IKEA STARKVIND air purifier comes in two variants, a floor-standing model (in black and white) or a side table version (in dark or light finish) – costing $129 and $189 respectively. Mind you, to have access to all the smart functions via the compatible app, the $35 smart home hub needs to be purchased as well. The air purifier will hit the IKEA stores from October 2021 in the U.S., so keep an eye on this one.

While their form factor is a bit different depending on the intended use-case scenario, on the inside they contain the same three-filter system. This layered filtering system captures bigger particles like hair or dust, 99.5 percent of small airborne particles measuring 2.5 micrometers, pollutants, dust, pollen and even bad odors are not spared.

This IKEA air purifier can operate at five different fan speeds which can be either automated (with the in-built sensors) or controlled via the IKEA Home app. It can even be scheduled using the app or work in tandem with the TRÅDFRI smart home hub. Plus you have the convenience of keeping a close eye on the indoor air quality with the app.

STARKVIND is sufficient for any room measuring 215 square feet or thereabout. Definitely not a competition-beating figure by any stretch of the imagination, but for small apartments and city dwellers a very good option nonetheless. Plus we have to keep in mind, the side table version is bringing dual utility to the fore, something I absolutely love.

According to Henrik Telander, Product Owner at IKEA of Sweden, the brand’s idea of a smart home is not about gadgets, “It’s about making life and home better through combining our solid home furnishing knowledge with digital solutions and technology.”

This portable home air purifier uses the same purification technology found on the International Space Station





The idea of accidentally inhaling alien bacteria in space may sound like a ridiculous low-budget Hollywood film plotline, but the reality is just as concerning. You really don’t know what kind of air you’re breathing on the space station, so it’s safe to say that the station is outfitted with air filters and sterilizers that take absolutely no chances. Referred to as photocatalytic oxidation or PCO, this technology obliterates any kind of germ or organic compound, turning it into CO2 and water. The technology would normally sound like overkill for using inside our homes on planet earth, but considering deteriorating air quality, the presence of pathogens, and a whole host of other organic compounds (smoke even) … it actually makes for a rather advanced air purifier that gives you the cleanest breathable air possible. Meet the AIR6Plus, a tiny purifier that sanitizes the air down to 0.001 micrometers within a space of 360 sqft without generating any sound or even any waste. It comes with a pre-filter that’s washable and infinitely reusable, and the purifier itself can get rid of anything, from the stench of smoke to even actual germs and viruses.

The AIR6Plus purifier is about the size of a smart speaker and can be placed anywhere within the house. It switches on with the simple touch of a button on the top, activating the state-of-the-art purification system within with three fan speeds – Sleep, Normal, Turbo. Air is sucked in through the base and it first makes its way through a washable, reusable prefilter that traps out particulate matter, preparing it for the next stage. The air then makes its way into a chamber that uses patented 3D PCO multiplier technology to effectively destroy any organic compounds, from bacteria to odor molecules, and from molds to organic compounds, formaldehyde, and even smoke. In fact, independent tests have even shown its ability to remove 99.93% of viruses like the MS2 RNA Virus within the air from 100% down to 0.07%, making it really effective at disinfecting and sterilizing the air (even without waste and cost of HEPA filter). The air then makes its way past the silent fan and into the last stage, where negative ions are used to scrub the air one last time, removing up to 99.9% PM2.5 aerosol pollutants without producing any ozone. Purified air finally makes it out of the top, covering as much as 360 sq. ft. or the size of your average living room.

Its state-of-the-art PCO tech aside, the AIR6Plus purifier’s highlight is its compact and easy-to-use design. Just about as tall as an Amazon Echo, the purifier is small and surprisingly silent. Unlike other PCO purifiers that tend to produce ozone as a by-product, the AIR6Plus generates no ozone or waste in its purification/sterilization process, and even saves money on the washable prefilter at the base, allowing you to simply rinse out the dust and dirt under regular tap water. The AIR6Plus is efficient on the electrical consumption front too, with an energy requirement of 13W (that’s a little more than your average LED bulb). The AIR6Plus ships in three colors, with a price tag of $189 (YD Exclusive), and for an extra $89 you can even grab the AIRbox, a tinier version of the purifier that fits right in your car!

AIR6Plus: Sanitize Air without Waste

Powered by 3D PCO (Photocatalytic Oxidation tech that space station also uses), negative ion technology, and nano PCO washable filter, the AIR6+ can breakdown particle size down to 0.001um (micron) with no maintenance cost.

One-touch to Start Eliminating Harmful Particles

MS2 RNA Virus Reduction Test

Done by 3rd party FDA 510 cleared lab

According to the 3rd party testing report, the percentage of MS2 RNA Virus goes from 100% to 0.07% in 120 minutes.

3D PCO Tech

AIR6+ maximizes the purification rate using unique 3-dimensional Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO) technology layout, multiple PCO layers, and maximum reflection mirrors.

Does AIR6+ produces Ozone (we know some other PCO device does)? No. Unlike other air purifiers that need the carbon filter to absorb the zone generated. AIR6+ uses Long Lasting UV-A LED for ZERO Ozone creation purpose.

How does AIR6+ PCO work? It generates billions of free radical to breaks down harmful particles that passes through the PCO chamber instead of trapping them in a filter.

Where can you see PCO Tech in use? PCO tech is used in space station, hospital, and health care facility for air purification.

Why choose PCO over HEPA filter? AIR6+ PCO technology is able to break down particles to 0.001um (micron) while HEPA filter is only capable of trapping particles down to 0.3um.

360 sqft Coverage

Despite its compact size, the AIR6+ is capable of purifying up to 360 square feet.

AIR6+ is designed to be small enough to carry in the palm of your hand, it can conveniently fit on a nightstand, coffee table, or TV stand in your house.

Negative Ion

AIR6+ uses Carbon Brush Anion technology to generate 20 Million per second negative Ion to reduce 99.9% PM2.5 aerosol pollutants without producing ozone, giving you forest-like fresh air.

Washable PCO Filter

PCO washable filter that not only blocking most of the large particles, it also cleans the air by trigger PCO effect at the very first stage.

The magnetic base is designed to easily detach and reattach, you can rinse, air dry, and reuse.

Buying an expensive air purifier and having to replace HEPA and carbon filters can cost up to $75 about every 6 months, and this will add more waste into the landfill.

The Aria combines NASA-inspired Purifier and Planter into minimal and functional home decor





Designed to give you the best of two incredibly capable worlds, the Aria is a nifty hybrid purifier that uses NASA-inspired purification technology along with the world’s oldest and most effective purification system – nature. Styled as a vertical planter, the Aria functions almost like a chimney, pulling air from the bottom and passing it through multiple filters, a UV chamber, and finally through the soil of a plant that uses phytoremediation to destroy any toxins and contaminants. The result? Purified air, obviously, but also an appliance that’s advanced enough to keep you healthy yet aesthetic enough to fit beautifully into your home’s decor.

The hybrid purifier’s sleek cylindrical design, although minimal, is also an effect of its function. The air travels from the base upwards, passing finally through a plant that serves as decorative greenery as well as a natural purifier. The air first travels through 3 mechanical filters (nylon, HEPA, and activated carbon), before making it into Aria’s UV chamber that neutralizes any harmful microorganisms, and finally an ionizer, which destroys VOCs and odors to produce fresh smelling air. In its final journey, the air makes its way through Aria’s ‘air booster’ which pushes wind through the base of the planter, allowing it to be further purified by the roots of your plant. The roots use an age-old natural process known as bio-remediation that remove, transfer, stabilize, and/or destroy contaminants in the soil, turning them into nutrients for the plant. Fresh, forest-like air makes its way out the sides of the Aria, filling your room with air as clean as the outdoors!

The Aria’s design and user-experience are clearly separated into two parts – the purifier, and the plant. The mechanical purifier itself exists in the lower half of the cylindrical appliance, which also sports a circular touchscreen display that gives you all the information you need – like your air quality, room temperature, humidity, etc. thanks to data fed to the device via its intelligent sensors. Alternatively, you can use Aria’s own app to operate your device, or even control it via the voice assistant on your phone or smart speaker. The upper half houses the plant along with a water-reservoir that automatically hydrates the soil so you don’t have to. Aside from Aria’s own app, you even have the option of using Tuya, a companion app that helps you choose the best plant for your Aria and your home. The Tuya app offers up to 40 different plant options that go well with the Aria based on their different purifying properties (although you can use pretty much any house-plant with your Aria). The app showcases plant ratings, the differences between each plant, and which ones are best for combating specific germs, allergens, toxins, and pollution. Together, the plant and purifier can collectively clean 325 square feet of air, making a single Aria perfect for the average living room or bedroom. You can place the Aria anywhere you’d keep a floor-standing planter, and the hybrid device doesn’t just visually enhance your space, it enhances the air you breathe too!

Aria – NASA Inspired Hybrid Air Purifier

The Aria is a Hybrid Air Purifier system that uses plants & air booster to detect and eliminate 99% of all indoor air pollutants while blending in with any interior.

The team was inspired by NASA’s report about the natural power of a plant’s roots, so using their own knowledge, they developed exclusive patent-pending hybrid technology for air purification.

Aria’s design approach is simple and clean. Highlighting the plant’s beauty so it blends in with the design of your space.

How Aria Works

Aria features classical mechanical air purifier tech that works in tandem with the plant’s natural filtering abilities to fight pollution, disease, and toxins.

Polluted air passes through the all-in-one ionizer, HEPA and activated carbon filter. Then, it is hit by UV light which is pulled by Aria’s turbine system.

The air then travels upward into the patent-pending air booster, invented to increase the amount of air to the plant’s root for filtering.

Smart Monitoring via the App

Aria uses multiple intelligent sensors to continuously monitor your environment. Information such as temperature, air humidity, air pollution, and graphs with history reports will be sent to your smartphone app.

Aria displays your air quality right on the touchpad display. The planter is compatible with Alexa and Google Assitant.

How to Set Up and Care for Your Plants

The plant library gives you easy instructions on how to set up and care for your plants.





The app showcases plant ratings, the differences between each plant, and which one is best for combating specific viruses, bacteria, and pollution, just to name a few.

This sleek bookshelf-inspired air purifier finds an ingenious solution to our filter replacement problems!

COVID-19 has pretty much sealed all of us in our homes, and our attention is completely focused on maintaining a safe and clean environment inside our home. Air purifiers are now an essential appliance seen in almost every home. As the quality of air in our homes can greatly impact our lungs and respiratory system, and with the COVID-19 virus directly attacking our lungs, we need to ensure that the air we breathe is clean, breathable, and safe. And this is where air purifiers faithfully play their part! One air purifier that really caught my eye is the Bookstyle Air Purifier by Winiadimchae.

The Bookstyle Air Purifier is to purifiers as the IKEA x SONOS unveiling is to home speaker systems – it is a design made to merge with your home rather than stand out in it, creating an uninterrupted experience. The South Korean company created an air purifier whose filters not only look like books but have to be borrowed like a library book! The concept basically revolves around subscribing to a filter replacement system, wherein you receive the filter via a non-contact delivery system. We often need a variety of different filters to take care of our various air purifying needs. We may need a HEPA filter, or a filter for aroma, or even a filter that specifically caters to homes with babies. The diverse range of filters is stored in a large inventory at the logistic center, much like a large collection of books at a library! When the need for a filter replacement arrives, you place an order, and a filter is efficiently delivered to you, without any contact. The filter is even packaged like a book! The book-inspired filters can be slide and plugged into the air purifier as you would slide a book into a bookshelf. Up to 4 filters can easily fit into the air purifier, making it look like a wall-mounted bookshelf filled with books!

The Bookstyle Air Purifier is really an interesting innovation! It takes an ordinary air purifier and turns it into a product that can effortlessly merge with our home. Even the purifiers can be replaced and stored conveniently. And not to mention anyone who loves books, would love to add this book-inspired design to their home!

IKEA’s latest air purifier filters even the smallest air particles and fits into any city apartment!

It’s that time of the year again – spring is in the air and so is the pollen. If you also live in a city with an AQI that consistently reads above 100, chances are your sinuses are taking a beating. Living in cities like San Francisco or Portland definitely has some perks, but air pollution is not one of them. Today, IKEA launched its latest air purifier, Förnuftig in the United States, boasting a sleek, lightweight design ideal for those of us who live in small city corners.

Waking up with a fully congested nose and itchy, dry eyes from all the pollen just coasting by does not make for a good start to the day. Air purifiers make all the difference this time of year, but it’s important to know which one is most suitable for your space. Quality air purifiers can cost upwards of $500, but smaller spaces don’t call for those.

Costing only $55, IKEA’s Förnuftig air purifier comes with a particle filter and optional gas filter to purify smaller spaces (ranging from 100 to 200-square-feet) from air pollutants such as dust, pollen, smoke, and chemicals. Measuring 4 x 18 x 12 inches, Förnuftig doesn’t require an accompanying app or smart remote. Equipped with nothing but a plug and dial, Förnuftig is your simple, yet effective old-school air purifier, packaged in an incredibly minimal, sleek avatar.

The filter that comes with Förnuftig takes care of the larger air pollutants, like hair and dust, that might be irritating your sinuses, while a secondary filter gets down to the nitty-gritty, removing finer air particles like pollen that could be as small as 2.5 microns. The gas filter then manages the smelly air particles like volatile organic compounds among other gaseous pollutants, as well as bad odors caused by smoking or cooking.

The slim design of Förnuftig allows it to be placed anywhere in your home, enhancing the air purifier’s suitability for small spaces.

Förnuftig does not require any additional technology or hardware for operation. Simply plug it in, turn the dial, and let the air filter out.

This ambitious electric motorcycle concept has filtered intakes that can purify the air as you drive

Think about it. What if, instead of emitting carbon monoxide, your motorcycle could do the absolute opposite? What if, instead of relying on a fuel-powered engine, your motorcycle could be powered by cleaner energy while also cleaning the air around you as you drive down the roads? It’s an ambitious idea that Lin Yu Cheng is working on through his concept motorcycle Aether.

Aether is a rather edgy-looking Cybertruck-ish conceptual motorcycle that runs on an electric drivetrain… but that isn’t its highlight feature. The e-motorcycle sports two large air intakes on the front (right before each leg) that naturally pull air in as you drive. The air that enters these intakes is passed through the Aether’s ceramic filter modules that help trap PM 2.5 microparticles, allowing filtered, cleaner air to pass through the exhausts on the opposite end. The result is an e-motorbike that does more than reducing its carbon-impact, it actually purifies the air around it, resulting in cleaner and lesser polluted air. The ceramic purifier module needs periodic maintenance/replacement too, which is why Lin Yu Cheng’s developed a system where you can either get them replaced ever so often, or pop them out and wash the dirt off them, making them as good as new!

The idea of purifying air as you drive isn’t entirely new, though. Designer Daan Roosegaarde demonstrated the Smog Free Project in partnership with the Chinese Central Government, that involved mounting air purifiers on the front of bicycles that were capable of purifying air as you cycled around the neighborhood. Lin Yu Cheng’s concept builds on that, with a stunning design that combines automotive artistry with an environmentally forward vision. While the Aether is a conceptual e-motorbike, its technology could easily be implemented on current motorcycles and e-bikes, allowing you as the rider to feel the wind in your hair while also cleaning the air around you!
