The company was founded by Martin Stadler in 1998, after his resignation as commercial director of the Swiss branch of the Italian coffee company Illycaffè S.p.A. Stadler worked with the young Swiss designer Matti Walker in 1999 on the company's first product, the futuristic air humidifier Fred. Fred is still in the current model range, and along with the latest products, has sold successfully to this day in more than 20 countries from the U.S. to Japan.
Stadler Form Replacement Filters
The first line of defense against airborne contaminants is to keep a house clean and well ventilated. But for some sensitive people that may not be enough. That's where air filters come in.
Household air filters are available in two basic types: media filters, which create a physical barrier that traps minute particles, and electronic filters, which use a high-voltage charge to attract and capture contaminants. A few air filters are hybrids that combine both methods, and some include activated carbon elements to combat odor.
