This air purifier is designed to focus only on the air purification function and to allow users to feel a pleasant atmosphere through the effect of aesthetic shape. The form metaphor was set as a waterfall so that users could immerse themselves internally and feel a calm and lyrical atmosphere, and the product scenario was set as a natural wind blowing from the waterfall. Dense, Overlap, Blur, and White Space were applied as design elements by analyzing the characteristics of ink painting. The contrast that filters naturally darken as they absorb dust is intentionally created through the punching pattern of the curved water stream on the air purifier's translucent cover, which filters the view to look like an ink & wash painting technique. It also includes an additional function because the status of the internal filter can be seen visually. Also the Frosted Plastic cover is used for "Blur Effect". The Balance of "White Space" and "Tidal Wave" pattern for associating the form metaphor, Ink and wash painting.
