Draft - Passive Air Cooling / Air cooler / Air-Con

Draft - Passive Air Cooling
Draft - Passive Air Cooling

Due to global warming the demand for cooling has never been higher than it is today. Longer, more intense heat waves are causing damage on cities and people’s wellbeing.

Draft is an analogue tool for coping with heat waves using the ancient cooling method of evaporation. Using water as fuel and suspending it in front of an open window, the incoming air will travel past the earthenware and reduce the indoor temperature.

The aim with this project is to have people and organisations to consider alternatives to the common air-cooling techniques. Options more visually appealing, less noisy and most importantly — more kind to the environment.
