5. Molekule Air Pro
Allergies and poor air quality can distract you from getting your work done, and one way to address the issue is with an air purifier. Molekule’s Air Pro is designed for spaces up to 1,000 square feet and lets you track the air quality with the Molekule Air Score, which assesses your particle and chemical levels to score your indoor air in real-time. It also automatically adjusts the fan speed, and shows your air quality score as a color-based metric on the purifier’s screen and app so you can spot pollutant spikes and clean air trends. Some customers even use it as a white noise machine at night.
It’s a favorite in Hollywood, too, and has the approval of investors Maisie Williams and brand ambassadors Bobby Berk and Derek Hough. Molekule has also been seen in the homes of Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, Hailey Bieber, Dakota Johnson, Jamie Chung, Kate Upton and others.
