Redefining the air conditioner as an item that makes a room more attractive, Toshiba has created HAORI. It is aesthetically designed for a sublime fusion with the room interior. Its fabric cover is formed in the shape of a grill with a smooth gradient to make it look like a continuation of a wall. Users can easily replace a detachable cover to match the room interior and their preference. Owing to a uniquely shaped flap, the appearance does not change markedly even when it is on. The chassis blends naturally with the room as it is slim because of a new heat exchanger and chassis structure.
