HOTSPOT – DECENTRAL HEATING – 2023
How do we want to heat in the future? We will have to switch to sustainable and renewable energy sources, as fossil fuels do not offer a long-term perspective. Furthermore, conventional heating systems with complex infrastructure can only insufficiently meet individual heating needs. The project Hotspot explores the possibilities of decentralized, electricity-based heating. By creating smaller heat zones in the room, heating is both more comfortable and more efficient. I developed a product-family with two objects: a heat panel for large-area radiant heating as well as mobile, modular heat-storage-units for near-body heat transfer. The objects are capable of responding flexibly to individual heating needs and they fit seamlessly into residential environments.
