Evaluation

You can tell the developers faced the challenge head-on to create a portable air-conditioner unit suitable for replacement of old heating system for the already saturated European residential environment. By adopting the shape of boxy furniture instead of using a resin molding compound often seen in household equipment, it has the perfect appearance that could become part of the decor. The details are kept simple, creating a couple of flaps on the front top part and air intake vents at the bottom and sides, making full use of the spaces and connecting parts and eliminating any design that makes it appear mechanical. We highly evaluated the design that points toward a new direction for household equipment.
