Earlier today in our weekly Green Architect column, Rachel told us about the importance of controlling humidity levels at home. Unfortunately, it's kind of a bummer that so many humidifiers are plastic eye sores. Then we found Mast, a gorgeous passive humidifier made with pure Hinoki (Japanese Cypress). The thinly sliced rot-resistant Hinoki mast absorbs water from the hull and diffuses the room with its intrinsic, lemony scent—all without electricity, of course.

Mast was designed by Shin Okada and crafted by Masuya Koubou. We don't think it's available in the States yet, but you can purchase it here for 6,300 Japanese Yen, or about $70 USD.

We just can't get over how beautiful it is.
