Outline

The Kirigamine Style aims to achieve the squared look that is ideal for wall-mounted air conditioners through scrupulous attention to fine detail design. The main features include: (1) A primitive shape with straight lines and flat surfaces used as motifs to hide the blower outlet from being visible from the front; (2) a sensor that is stored inside of the main unit when not in use; and (3) an air intake positioned in the center for reinforcing the square design and also contributing to a thinner unit profile.
