Living in a bustling urban area or metropolis has numerous advantages but also one major downside: air pollution. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, finding a refuge indoors may actually do more harm than good as indoor air is five times more polluted and loaded with allergens, chemicals and pollutants that accumulate over time and multiply. Molekule is an innovative air purifier that aims to solve this problem. Backed by 20 years of research and development, the device is the brainchild of Dr. Yogi Goswami, a dedicated scientist who is first and foremost a father looking for a solution to alleviate his son’s asthma symptoms. The result is a revolutionary system that doesn’t just capture harmful substances, but converts them into natural and harmless molecules; mold, viruses, bacteria, and airborne chemicals are transformed into clean air. Impressive as this may sound, Molekule is not just brains without style. Its design is contemporary and minimalist. A clean cylinder shape, a matte gray surface, and an elegant handle in a contrasting sand tone make the device just as beautiful as it is efficient. The company aims to launch the air purifier in early 2017, but pre-orders are currently available on the official site at a reduced price, with one year of filters also included.
