Ready for something hot'n'cold?
Hotflat is a series of coasters for cold and warm pots that can be used for serving food like olives, anchovies, pates, etc. The Hotflat coasters can be exposed to very high temperatures and it is possible to use both of their sides, depending on the intended use. The concept is based on an intention to simultaneously use the energy already produced in the existing production processes and create new objects. Old glass bottles in different colours, shapes and sizes are transformed in new objects, or coasters using glass fusion in furnaces reaching temperatures higher than 800° C. This way there is a double effect: the product is recycled with the use of excess energy from making other products. Since the objects are small, they are placed in furnaces along with other objects to use the same energy that would have been used anyway.
