Jiwon Seo / humidifier + light

Jiwon Seo
Jiwon Seo

Cogitatio is a product that combines the lamp and humidifier. Unlike other humidifiers that function from ultrasonic or airwashing, It utilizes the force from the movement of air(wind) called ‘natural evaporation.’ Fabric ‘parts of the leaf’ absorb water from the container and diffuse to the air through wind. At the same time, water and wind utilized for humidification forge a beautiful illuminating ‘light wave’ through the lamp under the container. This illusion can create a contemplating mood to the environment. Cogitatio will give vitality to your life and allow you a chance to experience the full pleasure of meditation and relaxation.
