Evaluation

The appearance and textural design are kept simple and harmonious with the living environment, which is the culmination of reviewing what household equipment installed indoors and remaining in plain view should look like. The interface is straightforward, as demonstrated in the lack of covering to make it accessible in the event of an emergency. It has eliminated air ducts and heat vents that are typically made from resin compounds and used the spaces for the handle between the wall instead. Adopting an L-shaped aluminum panel, it has reduced the visual noise by thoroughly taking into account the user's viewpoint looking up at the unit from below. Such construction has earned a positive evaluation for showing a new direction for the design of household equipment.
