above / Home appliance


‘Above’ is the air purifier which has been inspired by the original home appliance ‘Ceiling Fan’. The existing air purifier was not able to purify the air properly without the circulator by themselves. Thus, we have combined the function of ceiling fan into the existing air purifier. Ceiling fan has been used by controlling the temperature of the air using the great power of air circulation in the past. ‘Above’ which has the function of the ceiling fan shows the new form of the air purifier and it will provide the better usability and functionality than existing one in order to make the better air quality of the future family.
