Air conditioner Daikin Emura recognised with prestigious awards | perfection in design and technology

Together with Daikin, Japanese provider of high-quality air conditioning solutions, yellow design has developed the innovative Daikin Emura air conditioner. The product has been exclusively designed for the European market and equipped with cutting-edge features. Up to now, it has already received four major international design awards: the „red dot award: Product Design 2014“(Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen, Essen), the „Focus Open 2014 Silver“ (Design Center Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart), a German Design Award 2015 Special Mention (German Design Council, Frankfurt am Main), and a Good Design Award Japan 2014 (Japan Institute of Design Promotion, Tokyo).


„In the development, the focus wasn’t only on interior design and living culture, but also on the question of how to adapt the product best to the specific needs of European users. The product semantics reflect the functionality of the Emura product: most importantly the careful treatment of air, which represents the expertise of Daikin and at the same time is of importancy for the brand,“says Alexander Schlag, managing director of yellow design gmbh.  

Thus, the appliance fully meets the technical and estetical requirements and the needs of a European target group. The Daikin Emura convinces with a highly intelligent climate technology, which is much more energy efficient than conventional air conditioning systems.  

With the Emura, yellow design and Daikin show that modern air conditioners not only cool and heat in a functional and efficient way, but also make a contribution to the interior design. To this the jury of the red dot award states: „The air conditioner Daikin Emura convinces with its reduced design appearance and its restrained elegancy.”
