Heatune / heater

Heatune
Heatune

Heatune was inspired by an accordion. Just like an accordion player adjusts tunes, the users of Heatune can adjust temperature according to the situation or their preference. Most small heaters used in offices and homes keep the same temperature and blow heated air in one direction. Due to their fixed structure, they cannot blow air into a specific area or spread it out.

Users can change the position of this heater and adjust the direction or strength of the air. If they turn it on and spread its body as wide as they want, heated air comes out following the fan shape.
