This Woven Air-Conditioner by Maxime Louis-Courcier Absorbs Heat
Industrial designer Maxime Louis-Courcier’s passive air conditioner shows that there’s plenty of room for home appliances to become more sustainable and potentially even made with more natural materials.
The low-tech woven air-conditioner boasts a portable design that can be set against a wall to naturally reduce the temperature of a room.
Thre removable covering absorbs heat, naturally making a room more comfortable, using phase-change materials (PCMs) which go from transparent to blue as the amount of heat stored within the unit increases.
The system has the potential to be a useful addition to homes in the summer and thanks to its design that’s not only functional and decorative but also easy to store away during other months of the year.
