The design of the MLZ air conditioners is intended entirely for buildings with sophisticated, modern interiors. The distinctive thin front panel allows installing the units in a way that they protrude only very little from the ceiling. The two-level design also contributes to the flat appearance that blends harmoniously and unobtrusively into a given interior. The units integrate a signal sensor and an operating and display units into the main bodies.
Statement by the Jury
These air conditioning units impress with a sophisticated design that is geared entirely towards user benefit and meets high demands also in terms of functionality.
