By moving the radiator deeper in to the living space the interaction becomes more present which enables the user to keep the heat consumption more often at a lower and constant level. The design refers to the analogy of a campfire which represents the social aspect and essential importance heating once had in our culture. Heat is a emotional value. The interface is not numeric instead you can either slide the heat up or down to find your personal state of warm. New insulation standards liberate the radiator from his position under the window. The system works with hot water or steam just like regular radiators and can be integrated in to every existing infrastructure. In the summer, the radiator can be stored elsewhere to allow more living space

ROPES is a new series of lamps launched this week at Colette, Paris. The idea behind the lamps was to combine LED-technology with a innovative soft look and textile appeal. Unlit, the lamps provide a graphic statement to their environment. Lit, they diffuse a gentle ambient light.Each piece is unique, numbered and varies in size and technique. ROPES are handmade in France and Germany.
