What a lovely design!
From Elisa Strozyk again!
" Thermochromics translate a temperature- change into a colour-change. I investigated the question how this effect can be used to make the changing temperature of radiators visible at the radiator itself and on the surrounding wallpaper.
I am also thinking about the radiator as an everyday object. It is just functional and mostly not decorative. Why not integrating the radiator in the interior decoration?
Through the colourchange of the patterns it is told that the radiator is turned on or off.
It could be that if we can see heat appearring in a visual manner, that these makes us freeze less. Also the colour of the pattern could remind us of turning the radiator down when we leave the house. "
