Caldo ceramic tile, To Do Product Design
 
  Project is based on almost forgotten craftsmanship of tile-stove setters and potters.
We were inspired by the history of the tiled stove, dating back to the XI century in Cracow. This old device for warming an interior space became an important piece of equipment during the Renaissance period in Poland. Had not only a radiant function been helping in the survival in a cold climate, but also it created an atmosphere of the house, often becoming a work of art. Nowadays stoves are increasingly being replaced with gas and electric heating mainly because of pollution that they produce.
 
Asking ourselves how the traditional tiles made of fired clay could find customers in today's market we have come up with an idea of a ceramic wall radiant heating panels. This solution tackles problem of air pollution generating by tiled stoves. We can keep the traditional technology dressed in modern pattern.
