Episode Highlights

As we move into a “new normal” way of life, homes are becoming a multifunctional space that meets our daily needs for work, entertainment, cooking, and relaxation. In this episode, the speakers gave an insightful view on a healthy design approach for home spaces via integrating smart and eco-friendly solutions.

Tommy Lim emphasised the importance of incorporating environment-friendly, kid-friendly, and even pet-friendly values into smart products. He shared his belief that a user’s need is not the product itself but the value brought by the product.

Continuing on this topic, Mr Ooi talked about the lack of awareness for healthy and eco-friendly products in Malaysia, which leads to lower demand for them, resulting in higher prices. However, a quick vote during the webinar revealed that while healthy and eco-friendly products are more expensive than regular ones, 92% of the webinar attendees are willing to pay for the products if they can help them create a healthier, safer environment at home.

Mr Ooi added that it is worthwhile for consumers to start purchasing products from the point of view of long-term investment. He also mentioned that the products of Taiwan Excellence Award-winning brands such as Keding and TUMÄ are always a trustable choice for the consumers because they put a lot of effort into material selection along with research and development for the products.

The episode also provided the audience with more details on the featured products: Prefinished Veneered Panels from KD Panel and Flow2one Single Room Fresh Air Exchanger from TUMÄ.

Made from environmentally friendly coating materials, KD Panel’s antibacterial Prefinished Wood Veneered Panels aim to create free-from-harm living environments, protecting homeowners from inhaling harmful substances such as toluene and ethylbenzene. The panels have acquired the National Green Building Material Certification, so consumers can be assured about the eco-friendly quality of the product.

Flow2one Single Room Fresh Air Exchanger from TUMÄ is a combination of an air purifier, a dehumidifier, and an air conditioner. This product ensures better air quality at home by providing 200m3/h fresh air and 70m3/h exhaust airflow per hour. At the same time, it can effectively filter outdoor particulates and decrease the air temperature. Certified by SGS, Flow2one can bring regulated fresh outdoor air into your home. Furthermore, it can protect your home from outdoor particulates such as dust, mould, bacteria, carbon monoxide, and formaldehyde, as well as balance the air temperature.
