Making a Working Model

February 20, 2013

For the last month I have been making this working model to prove the idea that a heat seat which retains the heat through natural heat sink (in this case the tile, which aren’t as efficient) will provide adequate comfort over a long period of time with a short heating period.

IMG_0514The frame was first made, and heating wires from an electrical blankets were set out onto the seated surface.











Insulation was then used to force the heat towards the seated surface and heat sink.











IMG_0516Reflective tape was used to further insure that the heat would be directed towards heat sink.











IMG_0517The wires from the blanket were then relaid over the reflective surface.










IMG_0527A hole was cut in the back of the chair where the plug for the blanket wires would go.










Picture2Tiles were added to the surface of the chair to act a a heat sink.
