Ventus Air is a window installed air purifier for a Korean startup specializing in air filtration technology. User installed onto existing window frames, Ventus Air is able to ventilate the room with filtered fresh air, rather than constantly filtering the stale air trapped inside a room like common home air purifiers.
Its design is a very flat graphic expression that is contrasted by a magically moving door that slides out to reveal its special details and to open up its vents. This allows the product to remain visually clean and quiet while installed on any window and its completely monochrome color further gives it a sense of calm yet reliable personality. Details like its hidden display system, air quality and harmful gas indicator light strip, and magnetic filter lid with a witty fabric pull tab are careful compositions onto an unapologetically minimal design. As a finishing touch, the dedicated remote controller that doubles as an air quality measurement tool has also been designed in harmony with the air purifier.
