NOTUS / Fan-Heater


Considering the fact that a) fan-heaters are more environmental friendly and cost effective compared to fixed heating or A/Cs and b) that a fan-heater will be an object within an indoor space, it is disappointing that the vast majority of them lacks of design quality and thus sets them as non-attractive products in the marketplace.
NOTUS, the heater presented here, is an attempt to create a simple product with an irregular iconic form inspired by a pile of sheets of paper ready to swivel by a gust of wind. The control of the device is achieved by sliding the upper leaf and so there’s no need for buttons etc.
Dimensions: 35x30x14cm
