Art or Air purifier? No one knows…

Lately, air (and what gets transmitted in the air) has been a big topic of conversation due to COVID-19.

While air purifiers and disinfectant sprays have gotten more popular, they can still be bulky and expensive. In addition, the sprays aren’t great for the environment.

Now, the Sauberair FLAT hopes to get rid of pollutants in the air with minimum power… along with adding a minimalist (almost unnoticeable) design.

What is it?

Taiwan-based Sauberair created FLAT, which looks like a regular art piece… but serves another function of cleaning the air while being a stylish decorative piece in your home.

Disguised as a piece of wall decor, the Sauberair FLAT eliminates a wide range of pollutants in the air – all while using minimal power, and reducing clutter.

The décor is 3 ½ inches thick and can be placed anywhere around the house.

The purifier also has an app that can be used to control it in addition to built-in smart sensors. These sensors monitor the air quality, then react when it needs to create a purified and comfortable environment.

The app will also tell you when it’s time to switch filters so it’s always up to quality standards.

How can such a small purifier work efficiently?

It may seem as though the larger the purifier, the better it will clean the air… but that’s not the case with the Sauberair FLAT!

It’s compact, yet it still delivers a high clean delivery rate. It can cover a 204 square foot space in about 12 minutes.

Is there just one version of this décor?

Actually, it comes in three different styles. There’s the LITE, PLUS, and BT PLUS options for buyers to choose from – yet they all use the same type of filtration system.

The BT version has Bluetooth speakers and can act as an alarm, as well.

How does it work?

FLAT uses a non-woven fiber material that has high dust-holding abilities. This gives it a longer lifespan and better airflow that won’t be reduced as it collects more dust particles.

The intake vents are on the side of the product, which means most people won’t notice that it’s actually purifying your home.

It currently has a Kickstarter that just reached its goal, meaning they’ll start shipping in December. Right now, the price point is starting at around $450.

It could be a worthy investment for those who might need cleaner living conditions during the pandemic, protect those with diseases, or even those who just want a clean air environment around them.

What do you think – would you splurge on this minimalist purifier? Do you think more people should be purifying their air with these types of products to reduce the spread of airborne particles?
