How do two Swiss friends end up starting an air purifier company? The story, in fact, begins in Beijing.
Pierre Bi, our CEO (right), and Constantin Overlack, our COO (left), visited Beijing in 2012. And they were almost immediately struck by the intensity of the pollution.
Used to the pristine clean air from Switzerland, the experience of a burning throat when waking up in the morning or running for just a couple minutes, left both engineers shocked. And seeing other people suffering from serious respiratory problems made them realize that this was a pressing health concern. So they committed themselves to making the best air purifier possible.
