Design Goal

  

Previously, Braun would take air purifiers designed for the US market and convert them for sale in China. By developing a product from the ground up with this market in mind, the team can execute a design specifically targeting Chinese consumer needs.

Beijing's peak average daily AQI in 2020 reached 262, which the EPA considers very unhealthy.

 

High levels of air pollution take a major toll on public health. Many Chinese citizens have expressed frustration with the public health hazard posed by air pollution.
