Karim Rashid’s Azio is truly evolved since it moonlights as both as a lamp and an air purifier. The sense of experimentation that Rashid brings on the forefront is commendable and rare. Axio is part of the Luxerion Collection created by Artemide and Elica and is veritable effort by them to attempt something different. The pendant lamp features independent switches for controlling the light and the lamp is also touch-sensitive and also comes with a remote control. The material of choice is black glass and it has also been equipped with carbon filter which has been designed to annihilate macro impurities, unwanted odors and particles under 0.1 microns like pollen, dust and bacteria.
