Haksi / Modern household shrine


Haksi is a smaller household shrine designed for modern residential space. Considering the lifestyle in the 21st century, we reintegrated the functions of traditional shrine and gave it a brand new form.
Buddha’s image and daily information such as lunar calendar, 12 two-hour periods are presented on the mirror monitor. Traditional incense is replaced by pure mist which is more eco-friendly and odorless.
We have designed an app, on which you can access your favorite sutras and play them through the shrine via Bluetooth. Also, You can check daily information and set up the shrine on the app.
