homy – heat to go... / magnetic warming cushion

homy – heat to go...
homy – heat to go...

I was interested in answering the question ,,What does heat mean to us and how does it contribute to our well-being?". The result of this contemplation is ’homy’, a warming cushion, consisting of the most recent materials. Attached to a heater conveniently via build-in magnets, it stores heat and gives it off when needed. A carrying strap allows you to take ‘homy’ with you wherever you go – keeping your back or front comfortably warm. With its huge applicability, ‘homy’ fulfills all demands of a fast pace and hectic life. This product does not only emit heat but a feeling of comfort and security.
