An Actual Humidifier that is Good for You
[Ariticle Via 2Modern Design Talk – Modern Furniture & Design Blog]
Andrea Air-Filter, a collaboration between industrial designer Mathieu Lehanneur and Harvard professor David Edwards, is an environmental purifier that uses the air-cleansing powers of plants to remove the toxic gases of indoor air and pumps out clean O2.
Easy to see why it won the Popular Science, Best Invention Award. It does not collect pollutants rather actually eliminates pollution through the plant’s natural metabolic activity which performs a biochemical transformation of waste. Any house plant may be used in conjunction with the ANDREA Air Filter to absorb and metabolize noxious chemicals, but the best performing varieties include: Spath or peace lily, Red-edged dragon tree, Spider plant and Aloe Vera. Gotta love the power of nature.
The once dubbed Bel-Air air purifier was talked about two years ago in its prototype stage is now available for purchase. They say it is reminiscent of space age design. I think most modern eco-friendly consumers will think it is not a moment too soon for 2010.
