CHICAGO and STOCKHOLM-Blueair's Sense air purifier has garnered the 2012 Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design.

A Blueair statement said this is the third international design honor for the product, which was launched in October. It had already received an award from Japan's Institute of Design Promotion, along with a Design S award from Swedish Design Awards.

The Sense was designed by the Classon Koivisto Rune architectural and design agency in Stockholm. It removes practically all hazardous particles, bacteria and viruses, and features an interactive motion-sensitive glass top, which allows users to change speeds with simple hand swipes above the scratchproof surface. It uses a second-generation HEPASilentPlus filtration system, which removes germs, dust and smoke from indoor air.
