Solar powered room-heater inspired by Trombe wall
Ever dreamed of capturing the sun’s heat, and putting it to use when the day gets colder? Florent Bouhey Fayolle’s design, the Sun Container, does just that. A solar-energy capturing 120W passive heater, this one stores solar heat in slate fins and releases the heat from the vents in the top to heat up the room. Inspired by the concept of the Trombe wall, the Sun Container was built by the industrial design student at the ECAL institute in Lausanne using glass and an aluminum base.
