The Lake is a home appliance that combines a water purifier, humidifier and air purifier. It is inspired by the shape of a lake surrounded by mountains. The simple operation and intuitive interface make your life easier. The Lake-inspired display on the top changes color as the water level is lowered in the tank, so that you can see how much water you have without looking into the water tank. This provides a convenient and different experience for the user.
