This minimalist humidifier sure has come a long way from its preceding appliances just one generation ago. The carefully designed object is efficient enough to be small and slender and it visually conceals any of the functional elements that users are accustomed to seeing.
A single, subtle button enables you to toggle between three modes, and a slim little chimney emerges from the top to expel a plume of steam. This particular feature keeps moisture from condensing on the tabletop.
One wouldn't necessarily identify the Ultrasonic MUJI minimalist humidifier at first look, but that is a part of its appeal. The beautiful frosted white of Kazushige Miyake's design enables it to blend into a space, or be featured as a sculptural object on a cleared surface.
