Although this might seem like a concept, it isn't. This interesting-looking air purifier will filter germs and other unwanted particles in the air to make you breathe easier. What's really great is the overall design of this air purifier. It's quite unique and unobtrusive.

Plain Air was created by Paris-based designer Patrick Norguet for TLV. This project was realized with Ahstrom and Philips. The circular air purifier is wall-mounted. It sucks air through vents situated at the top and expels it through a funnel in the front.

It's supposed to help people with allergies, and get rid of pollen, which can be problematic during certain parts of the year. The press release mentions that it was tested thoroughly and has proven efficiency. The design also encompasses a long lifespan, sparse maintenance, and low energy consumption. It certainly looks very fetching since it doesn't look at all like any air purifier we've seen before. The price and the release date haven't yet been announced.
