beautiful design & alternative idea for cooling rooms
without the use of electricity.
In the designer's own words:
". . .based on a hollow ceramic tile that can carry and transfer water. using a designated connector,it can be connected to other tiles, creating a natural cooling screen. 'ecooler' is a combination between two traditional middle-eastern elements: the mashrabiya and the jara. the mashrabiya is an architecturalelement that bears social values as a mediator between the inside and the outside. it is designed to allow air and light into internal spaces. the jara is an ancient jug used for cooling water by seepage and evaporation through the clay. unlike today's air conditioner that creates separation between the user and the environment while exaggerating climate conditions, the 'ecooler' system takes responsibility and allows you to live in harmony with the environment.
