“The concept of the Varme hand-heater is conceived by Søren Abildgaard and the industrial design has beencarried out by the Danish Designer Anne Quist. With Varme she wanted to create a design that supported the feeling of “varme” and “hygge”, and with the use of fabric, she also wanted to stress the feeling of clothing and furniture – objects close to the body and objects as part of interior design.
Working with design is a great passion for me. I’m really interested in the object, its place in the room or the landscape and its relationship with human beings. I love the challenge and especially the challenge of something new. IR FOCUS’s technology/tconcept of using the by-product of the LED which is heat has been extremely interesting. The task in general was to ‘productify’ (homemade word) the technology into some communicative products which could attract investors and give them an idea of what the new tech could be used for. We have developed a series of different products. The ‘handwarmer’ is a favourite design of mine because it meets a demand – 10% of all people have freezing hands. Wauv – a real problem and a design solution that communicates the idea of IR FOCUS’s patent. In the design work with the development of the hand heater, I have tried to create a design that fits into different settings – the office, the gamer by the computer, the home etc. different colours in textile give a white range of options. I’m really excited about going to market with this new product.
