Open to anyone around the world, participants were challenged with producing a functional heating accessory made from natural materials that cost no more than $125.
Warmlight, winner of the Jury Prize, was selected by an independent panel of six judges in the heating and design industry. The Warmlight is a cost-efficient and eco-friendly LED light-based accessory that displays the current temperature of a radiator.
“Science has proven that seeing a warm color like red will make your body temperature rise,” said a Studio #3:13 representative. “Because the warm glow of light makes you feel warmer, you'll be less tempted to turn up the heat. The Warmlight will also prevent you from burning your hands on a hot radiator.”
The TRYangle Me which was awarded the Public Prize after receiving the most public votes online, is a colorful humidifier that is available in pastel or neutral colors. It is made of stainless steel, ceramic and includes a magnetic back, making it easy to install at any height.
“My design is fun and playful, yet a functional way to enhance the interior aesthetic of a room,” said Verhelstin. “I have been interested in interior and furniture design for as long as I can remember, so winning the Jaga Mookum Challenge is an honor.”
Each prize winner will receive approximately $2,500, inclusion in a Mookum’s marketing campaign, and a royalty contract. The winning designs will also be sold through Mookum’s online shop.
