ho-ho / living warmer(Product)


The name 'ho-ho' means blowing sound when people cold in korea.
In the past, our grandparents would prepare steamed corn and sweet potatoes kept on the warmest spot of the room just for us. This story might sound unfamilar nowadays, but there are still people who fire up the fireplace to heat up the room in rural areas. Just like we used to warm up our bodies or
warm up food, 'ho-ho' is a warmer to heat up something wherever we are. I have designed a 'warmer' with the keyword 'warm spot' of Korea's Ondol, and grafted it into modern day life. This can be used conveniently as a daily house hold item.
