Evaluation

This product has a variety of innovative design features, including a new technique that uses the Coandă effect to create flows of air while ensuring that cold air does not come into direct contact with the body, as well as a design that can be installed without the need for major changes to existing facilities. It would be fair to say that it puts into practice the user-centered design concept of providing a larger number of people with a comfortable cooling experience. While incorporating these elements, the designer has also succeeded in creating a simple, emblematic form. And that is why it was praised as achieving a high overall standard of design.
