– Visual elegance
Introducing the Silent-Iconic, an exceptional and award-winning air conditioning solution that marries both form and function. Its distinctive design elevates the aesthetic appeal, while its four discreet flaps serve a dual purpose of minimizing visual impact and maintaining precise airflow control. Taking innovation a step further, the central inlet of the unit features louvres, ingeniously integrating it flawlessly into any ceiling. These inventive modifications applied to the timeless cassette design artfully conceal air vents, seamlessly harmonizing with the interior environment's overall ambiance. The Silent-Iconic stands as a testament to design excellence, having garnered prestigious awards such as the Red Dot: Best of the Best , the pinnacle of recognition in product design, along with the iF Design Award  in the Product category.
Not only does aesthetics hold significance for users, but comfort is equally paramount. This is precisely where the Silent-Iconic design panel emerges as a groundbreaking solution, seamlessly integrated with our 4-way cassette system. The 4-way cassette's ability to disperse air in four distinct directions optimizes indoor climate control, providing efficient cooling or heating as needed. To elevate comfort to its zenith, the Silent-Iconic also encompasses the comfort-enhancing features inherent in conventional 4-way cassettes:
- Individual Louver Control: Each flap can be individually adjusted for personalized air direction.
- Precise Airflow Angle: The system is adept at directing cold air at a gentle 15-degree angle, preventing direct cold drafts.
- Efficient Warm Air Circulation: The 60-degree angle for warm air circulation ensures comprehensive heating throughout the space, especially around the feet.
- Exclusive GentleCool Technology: Our proprietary GentleCool feature further enhances the comfort quotient.
