Hitachi airHome 400 won the Red Dot Design Award


Design and utility come together in airHome 400, Hitachi’s new residential air conditioner that won the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2022. The appliance present features that automatically adjust operation for energy efficiency and its clean design seamlessly blends into any living spaces. “Today – the company says – we are seeing an increase in smart systems being integrated into air conditioning products, and airHome meets this trend with the smart features it comes with. For example, airCloud Home is the smartphone dedicated app, helping users connect with their airHome unit even when away from home, giving them the ability to set their room’s preferred temperature by the time they return. Coupled with aesthetic intuitive design, airHome strives to be ideal for any user and living space”. “We are very excited – comments in particular Lawrence Chu, Global Director of Design – to be receiving the Red Dot Award for the airHome 400 this year. This product represents the first of many digitally connected products in our residential business that bridges user-centric values, and visual brand experiences. Through humanized technologies, the idea has been about creating a design that is non-intrusive to the living environment, while intuitive to use and can be effortlessly maintained. With the promise of ‘Silent Comfort’, the concept of airHome is an air conditioner for people that can focus on living in harmony. Over the next few years, we plan to introduce various grades of the airHome series”.
