New Blueair Air Purifier Just Makes Sense

This the new Blueair Sense designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune.  It was designed to shatter barriers in the bland world of air purification with a contemporary design, touch-less control, compact size, low energy consumption, quiet operation, and optimal clean air delivery rate.  All Blueair units are Energy Star certified and use “HEPA Silent” technology, and I understand Blueair Sense will be no different.  I’ve asked Blueair for pricing and availability information and will update this article when I hear back.

Tiny Modern Leaf House in the Yukon

Speaking of tiny houses, check out Version.2, which is the second tiny house built by Leaf House and Laird Herbert in Whitehorse, the capital of Yukon, Canada.  Herbert appears to be on a roll because his first home was sold and two more are on the way, provided this second home finds an owner.  In any event, Version.2 is a 20-foot rolling house of luxury with a sofa bed, full kitchen, full bathroom, and dining area.

Live Screen Vertical Garden for the Home

The Live Screen will make its debut at Wanted Design in New York City this weekend. It was designed by Danielle Trofe and relies on a hydropic, self-watering configuration to create a stylish and sustainably maintained vertical garden for home interiors. The water is circulated with an aquatic air pump that pushes water through what will likely be 80% recycled food-safe plastic when the product is produced.  More info in the video:
