The Bathroom Steward is a heater and air purifier in one device. With its wind tunnel, it effectively heats up a bathroom, rapidly purifying the air at the same time. Once the integrated sensor measures an air humidity of 60 per cent, the dehumidifier is automatically turned on to prevent mould formation. The device can be turned on and off using an app, thus warming up the bathroom at the precise time desired by the user. With its mirrored glass surface, the unit blends harmoniously into any bathroom interior.
