SanSui is an exquisitely crafted personal humidifier and aromatherapy diffuser that was inspired by Zen physiology and Natural physics.
Natural physics: absorption and evaporation
SanSui is inspired and designed with the rules of dynamic physics and utilizing absorption and evaporation to create an elegant humidifier and aroma diffuser to add some zen to any home or office space.
Simply fill the SanSui reservoir with water, secure the felt silhouette slides onto the foam float, place the SanSui lid on top.
Then add a few drops of essential oils as needed. It is also designed as a modern ornamental piece to be appreciated as traditional culture is creatively integrated into a modern living environment.
Inspired by: Simplicity in chaos
Zen: When our team traveled to Japan in 2016, we had the opportunity to discover Zen in depth. We were inspired by Zen's interpretation of life balance and to have dynamic in peace and simplicity in chaos. Zen philosophy inspires us as designers to discover simple solutions for today's chaos; we want to focus on most obvious and important thing: Air.
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.
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. We wanted to design a humidifier that can be used anywhere we wanted to be.
Design solution: As a design team, we 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.
