AIRVITA : Developed by a Korean Woman Inventor
The CEO Gil Soon Lee was inspired to develop AIRVITA products after watching a neighbor agonizing over her new born child who suffered from a flu that simply refused to go away. In an attempt to buy an air purification system to help them discovered those that were then available were too large, too noisy and too expensive to buy as well as maintain. It was this discovery that motivated the R&D to develop a compact, silent and affordable air purifier for the home.
Since its humble beginnings in 2000, Airvita has grown exponentially to become the market leader in its home market of South Korea and now provides air purification solutions to homes and cars in 26 countries around the globe.
At the heart of AIRVITA’s success is its unique AICI technology that acts as an air purifier and active deodorizer that removes 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and molds in the home. In addition, the technology does so without the use of filters thus making it very user friendly to operate significantly extending the product shelf life and without incurring ongoing consumable costs. Its compact size minimizes visual spacing, the wonderful design enhances room styling and the direct plug in maximize physical space usage.
AIRVITA products have won numerous awards and accreditations, both domestically and internationally, for its R&D technologies, innovation and particularly many awards for its modern and unique designs with the most recent being the Golden Prize at the International Idea Invention Exhibition in Geneva, 2017. The products are also certified for JET in Japan, CE in Europe and FCC in USA.
CEO Gil Soon Lee has also been recognized by numerous awards including the World Female Invention Competition, the Presidential Prize from the World Intellectual Property Right Association and was selected to be a participant of AT&D Korean Brands as well as a delegate to the K-Design business forum led by the Korean President to showcase Korean invention and innovation in select countries across the globe. She currently serves as a committee member of the Institute of Technology Innovation – a committee within the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning.
AIRVITA is committed to continuing to develop new technologies and products to ensure a healthier you and a healthier world.
