ecooler by studio Kahn from israel
designer's own words:
The ECOoler tile screen offers an alternative for cooling internal spaces, without the use of electricity. It is 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 architectural element 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.
