Stockholm, 22 December 2015 – Blueair has been honored with a 2014 Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design GOOD DESIGN® award for the sleek design and performance of its new Blueair Pro series of powerful indoor air cleaners. The Museum's annual design awards program for the most innovative and cutting-edge industrial, product, and graphic designs produced around the globe is the world’s oldest and most prestigious awards program.
Now in their 64th year, the annual Chicago Athenaeum awards honor both products and industry leaders for design and manufacturing that has chartered new directions and pushed the envelope for competitive products in the world marketplace. The awards jury selected projects from over 30 nations that embodied such visionary criteria as ‘innovative design, new technologies, form, materials, construction, concept, function, utility, and energy efficiency’.
“We are thrilled that Blueair’s new Pro series of indoor air cleaners has received this international design honor,” said Joakim Nygren, head of the Pro product development project. “It underscores how design excellence can integrate technological innovation and functionality to create an indoor air purifier that helps create safe havens inside homes and workplaces for enhanced wellbeing and health.”
The Blueair Pro series boasts unmatched breakthrough filtration technologies and design geared to remove practically all airborne contaminants such as viruses, PM2.5 dust particles, allergens, mites, smells and volatile organics compounds from household chemicals and building materials.
Blueair’s new Pro range, which harnesses up to three sets of unique v-shaped filters and an inbuilt particulate monitoring system, reflects the insight that indoor air cleaning has come of age in a world where homes are built tighter to conserve energy. It is an environmental dilemma that results in indoor air being many times more polluted than that outside with trapped allergens, dust, viruses and chemicals building up to previously unseen levels.
The Blueair Pro XL was received a top design and innovation award from Envisioneering, the industry research firm, at its launch in September 2014 at the Berlin IFA tech fair. The Pro XL was judged on its engineering qualities, including technical specifications and materials used, the product’s intended use/function and user value, aesthetic and design qualities, unique and novel features, and how the product’s design and innovation directly compares to others in the marketplace.
Sold in over 50 countries around the world, Blueair delivers home and office users more clean indoor air for enhanced user health and wellbeing faster than any competing air purifier thanks to its commitment to quality, energy efficiency and environmental care. A Blueair air purifier works efficiently, silently to remove 99.97% of allergens, asthma triggers, viruses, bacteria and other airborne pollutants.
