The IKEA GUNRID has just been introduced as an innovative air-purifying curtain that is beneficial for breaking down airborne pollutants in the home. The curtain features a surface that has been treated with a photocatalyst mineral that triggers pollutants to break down as light shines through it. The way that the curtain works is said to be similar to photosynthesis, as various plants and organisms convert carbon dioxide and water into food by using light.
The curtain is said to work with both natural and artificial light, introducing a simple air purification solution for the home that will go virtually undetected, unlike most dedicated air-purifying units.
With products like its GUNRID curtain and others such as its wireless device-charging lamps, IKEA is introducing a range of furniture and decor pieces with hidden functional benefits.
