The conventional household dehumidifier’s role is only limited to removing moisture. For example, it is required to remove water, or warm air caused by dehumidification, and it causes inconvenience to a user. As a monocotyledon grown in African and India, Sansevieria is excellent in absorbing moisture. SANSEVIERIA is an eco-friendly wall-mountable dehumidifier inspired by this dehumidifying effect of Sansevieria. So far, users have just discarded water generated from the dehumidifier without reusing it. But SANSEVIERIA is designed to use water created by dehumidification for growing plants. Once you choose plants to grow in each pot, the mounted computer system automatically distributes water from the dehumidifier to use for raising them. Besides, SANSEVIERIA which is an eco-friendly dehumidifier to grow plants during dehumidification, can reduce indoor temperature by 2~3 degrees, while the existing one increases indoor temperature after operation. This new concept dehumidifier, SANSEVIERIA will make user’s house environment more pleasant and better.
