Infos about OneLife GmbH
Created by a team of German engineers, air quality experts and design pioneers, the OneLife mission is to make the world a healthier place. We believe in technology and innovation with true purpose. We are driven to make people live healthier lives while protecting the one planet we have.
Having already been researching air purification technology since 2015, OneLife was officially founded in 2019 as a Spin-off of getAir, a company in the decentralized home ventilation segment located in Mönchengladbach, Germany.
OneLife’s headquarter is in San Francisco, California, while our R&D and engineering team is operating out of Germany where we started the company.
We are a team of German scientists, engineers, and dreamers. We started out to use our passion, technological expertise, and our belief in a better world to find ways to make life and our planet healthier. We wanted to design a product that saves lives and protects the planet at the same time so we set out to create the most sustainable and most efficient way to clear the air of even the finest of particles. And we succeeded with the most sustainable high-performance air purifier OneLife X. With six watts, OneLife X consumes less than an average LED lamp, which gives it a super low energy profile. While conventional air purifiers cannot be recycled and end up in a landfill, OneLife X has a lifetime filter so there is no need to throw it away and buy a new one. To further support the environmental friendliness of the OneLife X, only sustainable materials such as fast-growing bamboo and recycled plastic were used.
How the OneLife X air purifier works
The OneLife X is a high performance air purifier that uses a cutting edge plasma filter technology that is able to filter particulate matter down to .01 microns, better than most HEPA filters. It doesn’t use a fiberglass mesh filter that needs replacing when it gets clogged. What’s truly unique about the OneLife X – The filter does not need to be replaced! Simply wash the filter unit, dry, and place back into the purifier! Using the One Life X saves you money on costly filter replacement AND helps the environment by not adding waste to our landfills. This purifier produces NO ozone, and is as energy efficient as they come.
Since you can tilt the fan of the air purifier, you can position the OneLife X at various spots at home. Most often the kitchen and the living room have poorer air quality than most other areas, due to cooking and frying food. In addition, now more than ever, our home offices are being impacted by poor air quality. Thanks to its convenient size you can even place it right next to your bed to guarantee a restful night. To boost your performance, you can also place your OneLife X where you workout and keep fit.
No. The OneLife X produces no ozone as a byproduct.
OneLife has taken electronic filtration from commercial applications as a model and further developed it in such a revolutionary way that its numerous strengths can finally be used in the home. Ions are generated in a multi-stage plasma field which charges the dust particles and then separates them in a collector unit. We are able to filter out practically all particles (including ultra-fine dust) without harmful ozone formation.
What the OneLife X air purifier does
Yes! Scientists found that air pollution can reduce athletic performance. One of the reasons for that is because during training athletes typically breathe about 20 times more air than usual which means you also get 20 times the pollutants in your system. Research also shows that cleaner air is linked to increased productivity, when they found out that employees in environments with clean air performed 61% better in cognitive tasks than employees in standard office conditions. In addition, clean air also has a high importance for a restful sleep and better rest, which also has a positive effect on people’s health, productivity and performance throughout the day. Another study revealed that people living in environments with high levels of air pollution were 60% more likely to sleep poorly than people living in areas with clean air. Restful sleep is especially beneficial for allergy sufferers, as they are not protected from annoying allergy symptoms at night due to allergens from house dust, animal hair and pollen. An air purifier thereby increases your productivity, performance and recovery.
