23.5 - Air Conditioning / Home Appliance

23.5 - Air Conditioning
23.5 - Air Conditioning

Heating/cooling devices are large consumers of electricity. What if we had a device that provides localized air conditioning, instead of spending energy to heat/cool an entire area? 23.5 is a Peltier based, personal AC, that has been beautifully designed. Each material stays true to its characteristics, with the new-age translucent plastic and a traditional steady wood and concrete base. It is designed to gain character through its aging, with the chipping of the concrete and the staining of the wood leading to a timeless design. An ergonomically places handle allows easy positioning, with the dials for controlling the device at easy access.
