“Design interprets the evolution of the society today more than ever and becomes a design tool for the ‘new forms of living’, intended as residential spaces and more – says Silvana Vacca, Communication leader of Hitachi Cooling & Heating for Italy -. With #airisdesign, in addition to exploring the connections between design and current and future guidelines, we also want to underline some key values of our brand, such as harmony and technological heritage. Air is a strong and silent presence in our daily life, but also a difficult element to perceive, measure and weigh.

Christian Rigotti, industrial designer

Giving shape to the air is a real challenge for designers. This is where the push towards the aesthetic evolution of our solutions comes from, as in the case of Silent-Iconic – the innovative design panel for 4-way cassettes – which adds intelligence to the technological function of the air conditioning systems and a new style quality”.
