TORONTO — Jaga Climate Systems announced the winners of its Mookum Challenge, an international design contest aimed at finding new innovations in heating accessories. The Warmlight from Studio#3:13 in Belgium earned the Jury Prize, and the TRYangle Me by Kaat Verhelstin, an independent designer in Belgium, was awarded the Public Prize.

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.
