■ Design features:
1. An exterior that pursues both interior design and cleanability by eliminating wasteful forms as much as possible based on horizontal and vertical lines.
2. Comfortable design with easy-to-reach drawers, ceiling bright lighting that illuminates the interior, and a removable vegetable box. 3. Expansion of freshness functions in consideration of SDGs and food waste issues, and interior and exterior decoration that gives a sense of cleanliness and high performance
■Evaluation comments from the judges:
The dignified and quiet appearance brought about by the horizontal and vertical appearance is exactly the aesthetics of subtraction. For example, the brand logo has been changed from mirror printing to the same gray color as the main body door. However, it is not just a design that draws out elements, but a careful and detailed design that improves functionality with a simple form, such as a straight handle that realizes high cleaning efficiency that can be cleaned with a single wipe.

■ Design features:
1. An ultra-lightweight design with a standard weight of 1.0 kg that can be used quickly and easily carried around the house when you want to use it.
2. Grip shape that reduces the burden on the arm and operability that pursues the balance of the center of gravity in every cleaning scene 3. The shape that eliminates useless elements and the extension tube CMF [*2] that uses carbon materials embody the lightness and functionality of a reliable cleaning tool.
* The standard mass is the total mass of the main body, extension tube, head and battery.
*1 Measured according to the JEMA voluntary standard (HD-10). *2 COLOR, MATERIAL, and FINISH, which are the three elements that make up the surface of any object.
■Evaluation comments from the judges:
The overwhelmingly slim appearance is a major feature that encourages the desire to clean up easily when you notice it like a broom. The impression that it is slim but not delicate is that the CMF of the carbon material of the extension tube, the subdued color, and the molding around the grip are factors that create a sense of reliability as a tool. In addition, the good weight balance creates a lightness that you can feel when you hold it in your hand.

1. The layout of the water tank has been revised, and the height has been reduced compared to previous models, resulting in a compact and easy-to-use design that brings the center of gravity closer to the hand.
2. A highly visible grip design with large ring-shaped water level windows on both sides, regardless of handedness or operating angle 3. Symmetrical and rounded closed handle for easy operation from any angle ■Evaluation comments from the judges:
There are various steamers on the market that can also be used for ironing, but this steamer’s drastic symmetrical design and beautiful styling are highly complete. The oval shape of the water tank fulfills the function of showing the water level, while impressing the roundness and symmetrical design of the main body. Furthermore, while considering the overall balance, careful attention has been paid to the design of the hanging surface and operation display. This compact feeling and beautiful appearance as an interior will change the troublesome act of ironing before going out to a positive mindset. ■ Details of award-winning products:
