JOY BUD / aroma diffuser


When the sun rises, the nature revives. The room is sprinkled with sunshine and it’s time to get up. Feeling tired of waking up by the annoying alarm? Let’s start a wonderful day with the aroma of breakfast. With dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) on the leaves of JOY BUD, the plant goes up and down. Therefore, the hollow in the middle will be showed, and the essence inside the pot will spread little by little, fill the room with aroma.
