Brasero / Personal heating system


In South Korea where electricity wasn’t available as a utility in 1950’s, mothers used to heat up stones from a brazier and had their children carry those to warm themselves when they went out in winter. We want to revitalize this experience into a modern design. Brasero is a fan heater/purifier and includes a rechargeable electronic hand warmer shaped like a stone. Its design came from traditional braziers to revive the warmth from old generation.
