balance / Home appliance


‘Balance’ has been inspired by the fireplace and the pot which was on the fireplace usually. The fireplace worked not only heating the room but boiling the water in order to control the humidity of the room in the past. However, the recent heating appliance has the dryness inevitably and there is no solution but the user has to turn on another humidifier.‘Balance’ helps to control the balanced temperature and humidity so even though you turn on ‘Balance’ for a long time, it reduces the discomfort of dryness situations and makes the pleasant environment.
