What is Chikuno Cube
The Chikuno Cube is a natural air purifier made from an ultra-fine powder of activated bamboo charcoal and clay minerals specifically from Kyoto. Don't be fooled by its size, because it has a tremendous effect to purify the atmosphere of any room in which it is placed.
The activated bamboo charcoal is a form of carbon that has been processed at a very high temperature to make the cube extremely porous.
How does it work as an air purifier?
If you look at the cross section of bamboo charcoal through a microscope, you can see that it has countless holes forming a structure like a cluster of intricate tubes. When the interior area of the holes are measured, it amounts to more than 300 square meters per 1 gram of charcoal, resulting in its excellent absorptive capacity. The Chikuno Cube was designed with this in mind and its micro-honeycomb structure helps amplify the surface area making this small cube able absorb odors in an enclosed space up to 17 square feet.The cube is eco-friendly and can be used for up to one year. To refresh the cube, each month expose the cube to direct sunlight for six hours. This releases the absorbed odors and it is ready to reuse.
