IKEA's New Curtains Will Purify the Air in Your Home
The beloved decor destination spent two years researching the technology to produce their latest innovation.
It's true that the harder your home works, the less you have to. And IKEA's newest product—a curtain panel that purifies the air inside your home—is guaranteed to do just that. No longer will you have to worry about indoor air pollutants that can potentially cause harm to your family.
The curtain is made with a mineral-based surface treatment, which, when paired with sunlight, can break down air pollutants. If that process sounds familiar, it's because it mimics the way photosynthesis works in nature.
The technology used in the curtain took several years to develop. "GUNRID is the first product to use the technology, but the development will give us opportunities for future applications on other textiles," said Lena Pripp-Kovac, head of sustainability at Inter IKEA Group, in a statement.
IKEA is already a leading retailer in affordable home furniture and accessories. And with the GUNRID air-purifying curtain, it's also establishing itself as an eco-friendly decor resource.
"Besides enabling people to breathe better air at home, we hope that GUNRID will increase people’s awareness of indoor air pollution, inspiring behavioral changes that contribute to a world of clean air," Pripp-Kovac said.
The GUNRID curtain is priced at $29.99 and is available for purchase online now.
