Thou Shall Not Covet Thy Neighbors Humidifier

This morning I woke up with a  bloody nose, due to the extra dry air in my house. This leads me to today’s post, and violation of the 11th un-written commandment… “Thou Shall Not Covet Thy Neighbors Humidifier”!

So, last night we were at a Super Bowl party at our friends Kanon and Rachel’s house, and Kanon, showed me thier new humidifier. ( I know at this point you are saying something “Are you kidding you get excited about a humidifier? You need to get a life Wade.” ) Here is the thing though, humidifiers pretty much suck. They look bad, they are noisy, they are a mess to fill, they have to be de-calified, they are in general an ugly noisy pain in the butt. They aren’t the kind of thing you would leave out in a room, or for that matter leave in a place where everyone could see it. This humidifier, trumps all of those conventions, and I now want one.

Here we have “Oskar“, The Econmomist! humidifier from Stadler Form. Brother to the Viktor air purifier, Oskar is a simple clean cube about 12 inches square that is elevated on a thin silver base, creating the illusion that the box is hovering gently above the surface it sits on. Last night when I saw this in operation I was amazed, not only could you not hear it going, there was no visible vapor mist or condensation on any surrounding surface. More importantly,  I didn’t know it was a humidifier at all. The clean design, helps hide the function of the device.

Oskar is available through Amazon for $159.00
