Bottle Humidifier

This is a Bottle Humidifier. It was designed by Yeongkyu Yoo. It is dated 2012. Its medium is abs plastic, polycarbonate.

Resembling a generic mineral water bottle, this elegant object functions beautifully as a compact-size humidifier. The bottle is cloaked in matte white ABS plastic. The clear polycarbonate base allows water to be seen, hinting at the bottle’s function. An orange electrical cord provides a burst of color.
