brilliant. rethinking the radiator is about helping people to reduce the average room temperature by 2° which could eventually save a ton CO2 a year and cut cost by 40%. modern technology allows the use of lighter and more efficient materials in smaller forms. by moving the radiator deeper in to the living space the interaction becomes more present which enables the user to keep the heat consumption more often at a lower and constant level. the design refers to the analogy of a campfire which represents the social aspect and essential importance heating once had in our culture. heat is a emotional value. the interface is not numeric instead you can either slide the heat up or down to find your personal state of warm. new insulation standards liberate the radiator from his position under the window. the system works with hot water or steam just like regular radiators and can be integrated in to every existing infrastructure. in the summer, the radiator can be stored elsewhere to allow more living space. - rochas jacob | via fastcodesign
