A major part of the green design movement involves minimizing waste by recycling it. Most people think of waste in terms of things you throw in the trash, however even something like water can get easily wasted. Water that drips out of air conditioners is actually a golden resource that tends to get wasted. Air Whale does a brilliant job of putting that water to good use. What it does is, it collects the water, filters it, and sprays a mist right near the air conditioner’s outlets. This mist, when cooled by the AC’s air helps cooling down the room even faster! A wonderful way to use waste water, and a brilliant metaphor with the whale bit! Don’t you think??
The Air Whale is a winner of the Red Dot Design Award for the year 2015.
