By the Heat of the Desert

Hot Liner is a flexible panel that is rigid enough to form a stovetop. It’s intended for the deserts of Africa where sunlight is aplenty. A couple of belts together can increase the intensity of heat for cooking and accommodate huge pots and pans.

A nice concept that I think can be developed and refined further, in any case it was showcased (and won the Golden Haechi) at the 2010 Seoul International Design Competition co-hosted by our good friends at Designboom.

Designers: Yonggu Do & Eunha Seo

    Battery operated cooker? It takes ALOT of energy to boil water. Cooking with electricity is not an appropriate technology for the enviosioned use here. It is pretty though.

    Use of plastic is not very sustainable. Could it be made with another material? The idea is very clever.
