In an effort to promote energy savings and mitigate global warming, Toshiba developed FLEXAIR, an air-conditioner that considerably reduces energy consumption by heating or cooling only the required spaces without compromising comfort. This lightweight air conditioner can be installed at places that were previously considered unsuitable by connecting multiple units. Each unit is designed in square shape which creates a sense of unity whether it is connected vertically or horizontally. The simple geometric shape achieves the compactness and the function of wind adjustment at the same time. These designs allow flexible installation in different environments.
