Air conditioner honoured for design
Daikin Europe recently announced that its Daikin Emura designer room air conditioner was awarded an honourable mention by the jury in the international Red Dot 2010 Product Design Award competition.
A total of 4 252 products from 57 countries competed for this year’s awards. The Red Dot competition goes back to 1955 and is one of the best known design competitions worldwide. Winning products are recognised for their excellent design, innovative approach and proven quality. Daikin Emura is an all-in-one room comfort system that combines Daikin premium quality technology with top European design. The elegantly styled air conditioner is available in a sandblasted aluminium or white plastic finish and includes an easy-to-operate, stylishly designed remote controller.
The unique design of the Daikin Emura was itself the result of a design competition involving leading design houses in Europe. Beneath the sleek exterior, advanced Daikin technology is at work, providing a residential split heat-pump system that heats, cools, ventilates and dehumidifies. Advanced features include an intelligent eye that optimises system performance and comfort according to room occupation levels. The result is optimum energy efficiency and all round room comfort in a package that adds refinement and sophistication to the interior.
