Dyson has unveiled its latest generation of purification machines with new solid-state formaldehyde sensing technology. These new products are designed to capture ultrafine dust and allergens, and even destroy harmful VOCs including formaldehyde, which are released by furniture containing formaldehyde-based resins, as well as paint, varnishes and various household cleaning products.
According to Dyson, while other gel-based formaldehyde sensors can deteriorate over time and are easily confused with other VOC pollution, Dyson’s new, solid-state formaldehyde sensor works alongside Dyson’s unique algorithm to precisely monitor formaldehyde levels – intelligently ignoring other gases which are detected by a dedicated VOC sensor.
Dyson has also re-engineered the machine airflow pathways to achieve fully-sealed HEPA 13 standard filtration – not only ensuring that no air bypasses the filter, but blocking any potential leak points through which dirty air might enter the airflow. This means Dyson’s latest purifiers remove 99.95% of particles as small as 0.1 micron such as allergens, bacteria, H1N1 virus, pollen and mould spores to protect you and your health.
Improvements to the airflow journey have also made the Dyson Pure Cool and Dyson Pure Cool Formaldehyde 20% quieter to reduce unwanted noise at home.
Described as the world’s first fully-integrated 5-senses well-being chair, the uDream by Osim is probably the chair you’ll want to sit in morning, noon and night especially now that you’re spending more time home.
Having recently clinched the Red Dot Design Award 2021, uDream carries a range of innovative features and technologies that allow you to measure, monitor and manage your stress levels over time.
It features the latest AI-enabled electrocardiogram (ECG) technologies, meaning it is able to register and interpret bodily stress signals, and translate them into insightful and easy-to-understand Body Tension Scores.
A proprietary mobile app allows you to keep track of your tension scores over time, helping you understand the impact everyday events can have on your daily stress levels and overall health.
A first of its kind, the uDream even engages your five senses – touch, sight, smell, taste and hearing. Each feature provides targeted relaxation to every sense.
The design is reminiscent of a cocoon that embraces you comfortably.
Touted as the world’s first air purifier certified to eliminate >99.9% of SARS-CoV-2 virus in 30 minutes, Aurabeat AG+™ Air Purifier is FDA-cleared as a Class II medical device to destroy viruses and bacteria. With its 5-Stage disinfection and purification system, it removes impurities in the air, from molecules as large as fibre and dander to minuscule particles such as virus and bacteria.
While it can already be found in quarantine facilities, government buildings and hospitals globally, it can also be used at home to ensure a fresh flow of clean air throughout the day to protect you and your health.
Aurabeat AG+™ Air Purifier is available at antelimited.com
The One is touted as the only system water purifier in the world, and is designed to sit on your kitchen counter as a functional statement piece.
The product has bagged various international awards such as the iF Design Award, Red Dot Design Award, Good Design Award and IDEA Design Award. And here’s what makes it unique.
Compared to conventional water purifiers where the faucet and filtration device are housed in a single unit, The One separates the two elements to create a more streamlined design that saves space.
Measuring 8.8cm in diameter and 33.7cm in height, the dispensing unit is ultra slim in size but big on smart design. It features a 2.8 inch full colour LCD screen that is encircled by an easy-to-use, touch control panel for smooth selection of water temperature on the left and water volume on the right.
Users are guided by tactile orientation with a fine raised line on each of the touch areas. There are six water temperature options and four volume options including a continuous supply.
To minimise waiting time, an in-built Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR) automatically prepares the device to dispense water when it detects your presence. You can also rotate the faucet 180° to dispense water in your preferred direction.
Every inch of The One’s water pipe is sterilised every three days using a moisture electrolysing technique. The auto water drainage system is activated to empty all water pipes and circulate new water if the purifier has not been used in 24 hours. Water is further cleaned by the anti-bacterial properties of the H+ cartridge consisting of a mineral ceramic and anti-bacterial ceramic balls.
With that, it’s time to drink up to better health.
Here’s something to help you sleep better.
Cellini has launched a new range of antibacterial mattresses exclusively for customers in Singapore. From Seville Lux, the brainchild of the furniture brand’s partnership with Belgian company LAVA Textiles comes the latest mattress with integrated ViroClean antimocrobial technologies to promote better health and sleep.
The all-new Seville Lux mattress leverages top-notch antibacterial technology. It features plush and super-soft TENCEL® fabric that has been treated with an unprecedented finishing supplement that promises to reduce various forms of viral activity on its surface by approximately 98% within 4 hours. The permanent non-migrating ViroClean finish also eliminates a range of microorganisms and allergens known to cause bacterial infections.
Beyond the propriety Oekotex compliant antibacterial and virus-reducing fabric, the mattress showcases a hand-tufted topper designed with an amalgam of responsive micro-springs and Black Diamond treated natural latex. The latter significantly improves thermal effusivity and maintains moisture transmission, keeping you cool throughout the night.

LG has introduced three new models of vacuum cleaners (A9K-ULTRA, A9K-PRO and A9K-CORE) with Kompressor™ technology for dust compaction. The bin space can expand up to 2.4 times, and the Kompressor™ compacts dust, hair and pet fur to allow more debris to be stored. Users can easily empty the bin by pushing down on the lever, minimising mess and avoiding direct contact with the dirt.
The five-step HEPA filtration system effectively filters up to 99.97% of fine dust and dirt, preventing it from re-entering the air in your surroundings. To make it easier to clean these vacuum cleaners, the equipment can be completely disassembled and thoroughly washed to remove the dirt on the cyclones and filters.
Want to multitask? The A9 Kompressor™ PRO and ULTRA models feature LG’s proprietary Power Drive Mop™ that shortens cleaning time by vacuuming and moping at the same time!
It’s worth knowing that the LG CordZero™ A9 Kompressor™’s Smart Inverter Motor™ has been upgraded. It spins at high speed to generate powerful suction that is improved by 40%, offering enhanced cleaning efficiency.
The products come in four adjustable height wands, and have a three-way stand: wall-mount, floor-standing and compact option.
What’s more, with the LG ThinQ™ app, the vacuum cleaners can be remotely monitored and users can retrieve and access device insight with real-time information.
LG CordZero™ A9 Kompressor™ handstick vacuum cleaners are available at major department stores
