Warmi is a wearable self-heating device designed for elderly people to help their regulate their body temperature. It’s a belt that uses a water perfused system to warm the wearer and enable them to maintain a safe body temperature of 45 degrees Celsius. Since the device does not rely on central heating, it can also help reduce gas and electric bills during cold months.
At Seymourpowell, we believe design has the power to make things better: better for people, better for business and better for the world. We’re looking for a project which solves a real-world problem, demonstrating innovative thinking and an excellence in design execution.
Sustainability should run through all design projects. We appreciate designers who see the big picture and have a clear point of view on the world. We’re excited to award ambitious work which shows a progressive approach to circular, social, environmental, or regenerative design to make things better.
