The stylish air purifier, invented by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur with Harvard professor David Edward elevates common houseplants to heroic status as they eliminate noxious chemicals that pollute indoor air.

    Are you kidding me? What evidence is there that a tiny plant in a plastic cage makes the slightest bit of difference to the atmosphere of a room? I have to call utter BS on this idea. Just keep a flipping plant in a pot. It will be just as effective, and it won’t have the problem of having to be thrown away every few months as the plant outgrows the cage.
