Stockholm, October 27, 2015 – Blueair has scooped a German Design Award 2016 with a Special Mention distinction for its powerful, refined Pro indoor air purifier series. Viewed as one of the most important global competitions for product design, the German Design Award’s international jury honored the Blueair Pro with a Special Mention for its exceptional design quality.

“The Blueair Pro weds outstanding performance in removing contaminants from indoor air with an elegant tower-like design unlike any other mobile air purifier in the world,” said Joakim Nygren, Project Manager, Blueair Sweden. He said Pro epitomizes Blueair’s 19 years of knowledge, heritage and design thinking in pursuing a commitment to make the world’s best indoor air purifiers based on understanding how people live and work.

Available in three sizes, Blueair Pro delivers off-the-scale performance to clean the air in large rooms up to 100 sq. meters of contaminants ranging from PM2.5 dust particles to pollen, volatile organic compound chemicals and viruses in 12 minutes flat. The sleek looking Pro leverages the world's most advanced modular filtration system comprising unique V-shaped filters and an optional ‘air intelligence’ module to trap allergens, dust, viruses and chemicals.

“It is a huge honor to win the prestigious German Design Prize and a fantastic celebration of how Blueair makes technology meaningful to help people live healthier lives indoors at home and work,” said Mr. Nygren.

The citation from the German Design Award jury noted that German Design Award winners have ‘managed to successfully set themselves apart from the masses and are subsequently entitled to compete with the finest in the field of product design’.  The Special Mention distinction is awarded to works whose design features particularly successful sub-aspects or solutions - an 'award that honors the commitment of companies and designers'.
