There’s a new reason to breathe a little easier: An innovative, sleek air purifier has arrived, and it’s pretty much made for small spaces. The Löv—which is nearly seven times over its goal on Kickstarter with more than a week left in its fundraiser—is a Scandinavian-inspired filtration device that can easily be attached to a wall, propped up in a corner, or tucked away wherever is convenient.

Air purifiers are a great tool for combatting indoor pollution in your home, which can be the result of VOCs that can come off of furniture; PFAs that might be found in food packaging; or even just dust, pet dander, and pollen. When you use an air purifier (particularly a HEPA, or high-efficiency particulate air purifier), you can reduce the amounts of these particles in your home—which is especially helpful for anyone with asthma or allergies.

With a width of just over 3 inches, the Löv (“leaf” in Swedish) is designed with Scandinavian aesthetics that help it easily blend into its surroundings, while its Korean-engineered triple layer of filters (a prefilter that catches dust and hair, a HEPA filter for allergens and small pollutants, and a carbon filter for pollutants like toluene and formaldehyde) ensure it does a good job at keeping your air as clean as possible. It’s not hard to see why the device has already quickly surpassed its fundraising goal.

If you want one for yourself, there’s still plenty of time to get your order in (with delivery estimated for November)—the Löv currently starts at $179 for an early-bird deal on Kickstarter.
