Ikea has developed a curtain that’s meant to reduce indoor air pollution. It’s a mineral based photocatalyst coating applied to the textile that leads to a process like photosynthesis found in nature. While normally photosynthesis is triggered by sunlight, the curtain works as well with outdoor light as with indoor artificial light. According to the company’s press release, the textile breaks down indoor air pollution such as odours and formaldehyde.
