Designer Ryuichi Tabu has created a tree-shaped air conditioner so the necessary appliance no longer has to clash with your decor.

This window air conditioner uses its branches as the air-flow ducts and uses ground heat to cool the air while also filtering out dust and particles.

Ryuichi Tabu's design integrates functionality with presentation in this artful AC system.

Implications - Air conditioners and cooling units look pretty standard and are designed for their sole purpose, leaving design elements pretty minimal. This unique cooling unit combines both function and design and will actually look nice in a home. This trend shows that people do not want design sacrificed when dealing with amenities for their home, and businesses should pay attention to the customer's wants.
