Chikuno Cube - Natural Air Purifier
A local natural resource since prehistoric times, activated charcoal is an eco-friendly natural purifier renowned for its incredible absorbency. Its structure is filled with hundreds of microscopic cavities that trap odor-causing chemicals, so potent that one gram of charcoal has as much surface area as a tennis court. When its powder is infused into beauty and health goods, those products retain its amazing absorptive qualities. Originally harnessed by Japanese craftsmen four hundred years ago for its purifying properties, our collection reimagines an ancient technique for modern living.
A compact air purifier made from activated charcoal and all-natural materials.
The Chikuno Cube is a natural air purifier made from activated charcoal and clay minerals. Its porous nature allows this purifier to draw out impurities from the air. The micro-honeycomb structure of the cube is engineered to optimize the total surface area of the charcoal and amplify its effectiveness, absorbing odors and moisture in enclosed spaces of up to 17 sq. ft.
Ideal in refrigerators, closets and small bathrooms, the Chikuno Cube is a sleek, eco-friendly purifier that can be recycled after one year of use. Winner of the 2008 Japanese Good Design award.
