The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, and the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, awarded Blueair’s new Blue air purifier with its 2015 Good Design award in recognition of the contemporary Swedish-engineered design and style, the company said.
The Good Design Awards recognize innovative industrial, product and graphic designs from around the world, the company said. The award citation said Blue breaks new ground across the range of engineering qualities, use of materials, aesthetics, user value and efficiency in cleaning indoor air.
“Having our new Blue air purifier recognized by the Good Design Awards underlines Blueair’s position as a design leader in providing a new generation of active, health and sports focused consumers, powerful indoor air cleaning,” said Elin Ward, Blueair’s Blue engineer.
“The result is a deceptively simple, disruptive appliance that breaks conventional air purifier thinking by placing a replaceable filter at the bottom of the unit and the fan at the top under a geometrically perforated grill that ensures maximum air flow performance with minimal noise,” added Ward.
