On top of airborne virus particles, dust and mould can also wreak havoc on folks with allergies, which means extra research needs to be done when choosing a suitable air purifier. Thankfully, the German-designed Cosmo Prime fits the bill with its ability to filter out 99.97% of all airborne particles.

Built with an auto-adjusting fan, this sleek appliance comes with an Anion Mode, which releases negative ions that are said to reduce stress and boost immune system functions. It’s also unlike most air purifiers, as this one comes in a rounded build that helps it absorb particles from all angles.

It can purify a space of 80sqm, which is about the size of a living room, kitchen, and a dining room put together. You can also safely leave it chugging away at night, as it’s one of the quieter air purifiers out there with a noise level of just 20dB, and it’s built with a blue night light that facilitates sleep.
