The name of the Kirigamine Zen room air conditioner says it all: available in white, black or silver, it conveys Japanese Zen aesthetics with a design that also blends harmoniously into modern European interiors. Its minimalist body shape shows a combination of straight lines, flat surfaces and a high-quality finish. The aerodynamic design enables a significant energy-saving performance. It also contributes to a clean overall appearance since the front panel can stay closed, which is not always possible with thin profile models.
Statement by the Jury
The Kirigamine Zen presents a convincing symbiosis of energy-saving technology and minimalist, elegant design.
