LG Designs Keep Cool
We've already seen LG's designer washing machines, but who knew that they made designer air conditioners, too? TheDesignWeblog first spotted these and they're even cooler - literally - than the washing machines. The Art Cool Air Conditioning units offer changeable panels, in addition to plain designs and the Van Gogh pictured here, that allow you to customize the appliance. The air conditioners are slim, wall mounted and release air through mini-slits, not sending out a jet of freezing wind into the room and eliminating hot and cold spots while keeping things cool. The design makes it one of the quietest air conditioners in the world. It includes an air-purification system, timer, temperature display and a noncooling dehumidification mode. The units are priced around $1500, but the price varies by specific model, so it's best to track down a dealer if you're interested.
