Discipline: Professional Concept

The innovative natural stone humidifier that utilizes the material’s hygroscopic property and uses no electricity. This stone is an ideal material for natural humidifier, as it is able to hold water molecules, and yet it does not decay and can be used permanently. The shallow water-ripple pattern grooves carved on the surface hold even more water and increase the surface area for evaporation. It is an extremely eco-friendly product made from the stone off cuts previously wasted.
