Design Description
Idea from the two famous Olympic Games- Cube and Nest
Two Olympic stadiums have the same meaning of the air humidifier and purifier. Water Cube,water,the humidifier could be presented with a very pure form in front of the users,humidifying the air,and at the same time,can also visually humidfy the mental sense.The nest, nature, purifier can also be a nature thing which abstracts the image out of the nest in front of people,purifying the air,at the same time,giving people a visual enjoyment of a return to nature. 08, the world will remember the Nest, Water Cube.They will make people amazed, hang around; 08, is also the year rolling business opportunities, foreign visitors, will gather in Beijing in all directions. Gifts, souvenirs will become the best consumer goals. If we could merge the concept of Nest and Cube into the purifier and humidifier,it will be a meaningful mission and hardly to resist.
