HOME LANTERN / Appliances


A heater is brimming with oriental charm.

The design embodies the essence of a Chinese lantern, featuring a metal frame and a wooden base that bring a warm look to the heater. Lit by a halogen bulb at the center, it is ideal for a small family home.

Water can be poured onto the top canister to generate vapor, allowing it to gently humidify the surrounding. The design is reminiscent of heating a kettle on an oil stove, subtly projecting an image of the old days.
