Airsign vacuum cleaner: powerful and durable
Compact, powerful, durable: is this the future of vacuum cleaners?
Made with 20% recycled plastic and aluminum and designed to be repaired, this HEPA vacuum from newcomer Airsign was designed by Joseph Guerra.
Nowadays, the idea of being clean goes far beyond standard hygiene. Airsign, a new home products company, takes this very seriously. Its first product, a compact HEPA vacuum, not only performs well, but is also sustainably manufactured. The brainchild of New York designer Joseph Guerra of Guerra Office (formerly known as Visibility Studio), Airsign is committed to creating products that are beautifully designed and perform better while using the fewest resources possible.
Airsign’s reimagining of the humble vacuum features a powerful HEPA-14 filter with charcoal, so it captures 99.995% of particles larger than 0.3 microns, the company says, making it the one of the most powerful vacuum cleaners on the market. Designed to be repairable and built to last, the vacuum also has a 1200W motor, giving it 250 watts of suction air, which in simple terms means it’s powerful enough to power a electric scooter and will get what most other vacuum cleaners won’t.
The cleaner has also been fitted with a sealed system to prevent particles from escaping the machine – a common problem with other units. Combined with a four-layer filtration system – dust bag, pre-motor filter, HEPA-14 filter and carbon filter – it really purifies the air while you vacuum.
Airsign’s vacuum cleaner is made from 20% recycled plastic. It has also been designed to assemble and disassemble without the use of glue or snaps, so that it can be repaired without any waste. This sustainable philosophy extends to the compostable and biodegradable airbags that come with it, as well as the use of recycled aluminum for its handle and wand. Made without glue, paint or co-molded parts, it is easily recyclable. Even HEPA filter replacements are mostly plant-based.
Armed with a five-year warranty, Airsign’s design is also a game-changer when it comes to price. Available for a relatively modest price of $295, the distinctly utilitarian unit, in a matte black finish, even boasts an understated footprint. Designed for city life, the compact machine stores neatly and weighs just under 11 lbs (5 kg). It doesn’t skimp on the bells and whistles either. Equipped with a telescoping wand, crevice tool, crevice tool and multi-floor head, this could very well be the last vacuum cleaner you’ll ever own. §
