Canoon Space Heater by Younes Duret
French designer Younes Duret has designed a versatile space heater called Canoon. The elegant space heater takes inspiration from traditional Moroccan cooking methods where they use a kind of heater ceramic dish designed by Moroccan artisans. The stove, softly deep and oval in shape, allows cooking Moroccan dishes on a charcoal fire. This same idea and craftsmanship inspired the designer to create Canoon, a mini green heater which uses thermal inertia.
In designer’s words, “Canoon is made entirely of recycled plastic. Using very little energy, it has the distinction of being easily transportable in all living areas of your home. You can put in it cushions in natural linen upholstered with cherry pits to warm them. Thanks to their high thermal inertia, these little cushions that will easily fit in your hand apply to all parts of the body to relieve your tensions and comfort you such as headaches, pains of the baby … but also warm your feet, your hands, and your bed during the long winter evenings. Turn on or turn off Canoon, increase or decrease its heat with your hand stroking the top or bottom of this heater. Its color varies from turquoise to indicate a low temperature to red, indicative of a strong heat.”
