The Hisense Air Conditioner Uses Condensation for Vegetation and Purification

 - Feb 13, 2012
How rare it is to see an air conditioning unit that's actually aesthetically pleasing! And even more so, one that's eco-friendly. The Hisense Air Conditioner breaks many of the conventions of the domestic appliance, leading one to hope that it might be manufactured soon.

Typically treated as waste, the condensation created by this device is used to irrigate a planted panel of lush vegetation. The little vertical lawn is visible behind the transparent doors of Francois Hurtaud's concept, contributing greatly to its visual appeal. Practically too, the tiny blades of grass work to absorb carbon dioxide from the air, releasing fresh oxygen into the interior space.

Designed to be displayed proudly in any room of the house, the green Hisense Air Conditioner emits lovely mood lighting, and its digital interface can be positioned by preference.
