Editor's Pick

It looks like a work of art, but its beauty also happens to be functional—and eco-friendly. Mast is actually a humidifier conceived by Japanese designer Shin Okada. Requiring no electricity, it draws water from its base and diffuses it through thin slices of bent hinoki or Japanese cypress, which also naturally diffuses a lemony scent throughout the room. Mast is available for 6300 Yen, or about $70 online through Japanese retailer Masuya.
