“Less but More”. Powerful functions are highlighted by stressing the cyclone structure, filter and S-LINE GUARD. The S-LINE GUARD intuitively emphasizes the functional elements including the cyclone dust bin, buttons and handles and protects its main body and furniture. It is refined into a curvy “S“ shape and the wrinkled shapes on the side protect where the main body comes in contact with furniture. This design minimizes the contact area and reduces friction, so the evasion motion of the main body is easy. As such, it offers excellent usability and embodies the model’s unique characteristics.
