Should it be in a gallery or your home? That is the question. On looks alone, the Airc air purifier blows the rest out of the water. You won’t find any ugly input/output tubes or ducts. You won’t even see an elaborate (or simple for that matter) interface with an array of distracting buttons or glowing screens. Rather, the unassuming design is as simplistic and symmetrical as it gets.
Its internal filtration system is elegantly shrouded by a series of overlapping, functional fins that direct air in before being cleaned and released from the top. Its shape is an elegant abstraction of a vortex that looks more artistic and sculptural than appliance-like. Even in more traditional settings, it’s a better aesthetic option than the more technical, clunky options on the shelves currently.
