A Humidifier That Calms Your Senses

Most products strive to be aesthetic and functional. The SanSui does both, but also has an elegance and flair to it that goes beyond being aesthetic and functional. It looks good, performs well, but ultimately, soothes one’s soul too.

A simple humidifier and aromatherapy diffuser, the SanSui comes with a hollow wooden box and slits on top, much like a toaster. Sitting within its hollow space is a diorama in felt. The felt diorama (a depiction of Mt. Fuji and some clouds) floats when you pour water into the wooden box through the slits. As the day passes by, the water gets absorbed by the pieces of felt, and released into the air, acting as a natural humidifier. The water level gradually drops over time, and the mountain and clouds descend back into the wooden box.

The SanSui (Japanese for Mountain and Water) is a functional sculptural piece that emits moisture into the air with a poetic beauty that’s unparalleled. The mountain and clouds rise from above the surface as you pour water into the reservoir, and gradually descend into the hollow space through the day, letting you know that the reservoir needs refilling. A simple device inspired by Zen practices, the SanSui calms the mind with its simple yet exquisite design. Working as a natural humidifier, the SanSui can even be used as an aromatherapy device by simply adding a few drops of essential oil into the water. As the water evaporates, the oils get absorbed by the felt and diffused into the air, making your room look great, while completely transforming the atmosphere and making it peaceful and more relaxing.

Inspired by: Simplicity in chaos

sansui_humidifier_aromatherapy_diffuser_04

Zen: When their team traveled to Japan in 2016, they had the opportunity to discover Zen in depth. They were inspired by Zen’s interpretation of life balance and to have dynamic in peace and simplicity in chaos. Zen philosophy inspires them as designers to discover simple solutions for today’s chaos; they want to focus on most obvious and important thing: Air.

sansui_humidifier_aromatherapy_diffuser_07

Air: Human have been trying to make “suitable” air for thousands of years. We want to cool air down when it gets hot. We want to be warmed when it is cold. Today, we also want to have air with more moisture to comfort us.

sansui_humidifier_aromatherapy_diffuser_06

Chaos: Our lifestyle today is surrounded by so many technologies that make life convenient but at the same time creates chaos because most of devices need to be connected by a cable. This small cable has actually restricted our life dynamic much more than we think as we start to spend more time nearby a power plug than anywhere else at home. They wanted to design a humidifier that can be used anywhere we wanted to be.

sansui_humidifier_aromatherapy_diffuser_05

Design solution: As a design team, they spent the last 2 years observing lifestyle and developed many concepts and prototypes for a beautiful and simple humidifier solution. SanSui is the result of 2 years of research and development: a creative humidifier and aroma diffuser that can be placed in any space you like, fully powered by natural physics, regardless of the space restrictions.


Bonsai with Function

A Humidifier for Work or Home

pineal_humidifier_layout

Humidifiers are a great way to add moisture to the air at home but the Pineal humidifier is one you can take to work. Most designs are powerful enough to handle humidifying large rooms or entire apartments, however, but their large size doesn’t make them appropriate for the workplace or office.

The Pineal’s compact size only takes up a small footprint on your desk yet it will provide you with a healthy zone of humidification for your personal enjoyment. Better yet, its sleek form feels more artistic than appliance so it won’t kill your workspace inspiration. Like the name suggests, it takes inspiration from the pinecone and features familiar scales that shift depending on the unit’s mode of operation. When closed, it omits a targeted spray upward. When expanded, they diffuse the mist to provide coverage to the immediate area.

A Haute Humidifier

diesel_yanko_design

I’m a bit surprised to see a fashion-inspired humidifier, but I can’t say I’m not liking it! Designed for Diesel, the Reborn humidifier lacks the medical-product look of many other existing designs. Instead, it has a metal and glass material combination that looks more sculpture than appliance. In keeping with the Diesel brand identity, it has a sort of rugged, high-end, industrial vibe that blends in perfectly in any loft space or man cave.

Shofar, So Good!

Web

The Shofar humidifier takes ancient inspiration from the musical ram’s horn of the same name. Not only for looks, its interesting form is also quite effective at using gravity to ensure that water is constantly moved to the center before being transformed to vapor. The design is also equipped with a remote control that conveniently nests in the mouth of the unit. When you’re ready to use it, simply remove the control and adjust the settings from anywhere in the room. Masculine yet minimalistic, it’s easy to imagine this adorning the mantle in your modern man cave!

The humidifier with two identities

mool_humidifier_1

Most humidifiers are only used in one half of the year, when it’s dry. They sit and gather dust during the remaining six months. Huira Koo had a brainwave and asked herself, what if the humidifier, when not in use, could integrate into the home decor and become a lifestyle product, therefore having two seasonal avatars. The Mool was created keeping that very insight in mind, serving as a humidifier when needed, and separating into a vase and decorative bowl at other times.

The Mool comprises a glass base, into which you fill the water, and a terracotta ‘umbrella’ that submerges into the water. An intermediary ring made out of cork tightly holds both base and umbrella in place. Mool humidifies the air naturally, through terracotta’s innate properties of absorbing water and releasing vapor. It’s said to have an incredibly long shelf life, resist infection/corrosion, and actually purify the water too, acting as a filter. The Mool doesn’t use a single bit of electricity, and can easily run for years before the terracotta needs replacing. Plus, it makes such a nice vase/bowl when not in use!

Design in Disguise

bakedair_01

If you close your eyes and picture a humidifier, there’s a 99% chance you’re envisioning something totally cringeworthy! It’s also why this cleverly designed collection of humidifiers won a Red Dot Design Concept Award… because they look NOTHING like a humidifier! In fact, they’re designed with a disguise. Each looks like another, less aesthetically invasive product to make things feel more cozy.

The pot, the biggest in the series, is designed for the living room or more spacious areas. Instead of emitting steam directly from a single, small, hole-type outlet, moisture is released along the circular rim of the top disk. This spreads the steam out over a wider area. In addition, the user interface is subtly micro-perforated on the top disk. — The kettle, a medium-sized option, has a capacity that makes it highly portable. With its convenient handle and purposefully placed spout, it’s ideal for bedrooms and other mid-size rooms. — The cup, the smallest of the series, looks like an average mug on your desk and is perfectly sized to humidify your workspace and other micro areas. Its dock station, the smallest of the 3, is compact enough to leave on your desk top or keep by your bedside.

Enhancing Respiratory Health

n_air_00

We take a breath as many as 30,000 times a day! Unfortunately, for those with asthma and other respiratory conditions, this means 30,000 opportunities for difficulty breathing. The N-Air Medical Purifier and Humidifier aims to make as many of those as beneficial and irritant-free as possible!

Like most purifiers, it absorbs particles and allergens while circulating indoor air. As a humidifier, it increases the moisture in the air to prevent airborne viruses and sooth the sinuses. What sets it apart, however, is the integrated diffuser that harnesses the benefits of herbs and plants like lobelia and eucalyptus for lung cleansing and respiratory support. Simply load up the capsule with your preferred mixture and pop it in to the top of the device to enhance your respiratory health!
