Urban bonfire / radiator

Urban bonfire
Urban bonfire

It is a modulated, independent heating system in which the bottom of “bonfire” is pressed by a foot to open the top part which emits heat. When controlled by feet, it is not only easier to use but easier to recognize whether the power is on or not as indicated by shape in “Urban bonfire”. Moreover, breaking from uniform design of radiators, the surface was decorated with geometrical forming with motive from wood fire; the LED was motivates by the shape of flame. “Urban bonfire” applies a design which metaphorically illustrates wood fire on monotonous radiator. In addition, it is expected to reduce wasted energy and environmental pollution.
