Jaga Climate System’s Hotsofa turns an existing radiator into a welcoming “hot seat”

Jaga Climate Systems, a leading developer of energy-efficient heating and cooling solutions, has introduced the Hotsofa, an innovative bench that transforms an existing radiator into a comfortable seating area. Ideal for commercial spaces – such as museums, airports or other community spaces – the Hotsofa is a heated bench that keeps users warm in cooler months, but maintains its function during summer months. By converting the radiator into a place for people to talk and relax, the Hotsofa creates space rather than taking it away.

“The Hotsofa enhances our connection to the outdoors by transforming unusable space alongside windows into functional and elegant seating,” says Bert Kriekels, president of Jaga Climate Systems. “Its original design is an instant hit in any interior, and is considered a unique piece of art.”

Available in a variety of fabrics and colours with lengths ranging from 5 to 15 feet, each sofa is personally signed by Dutch designer Co de Smalen. The sofa’s premium wool fabric can be easily reupholstered and the unit can be moved if a new look and location are desired. Like all of Jaga’s products, the Hotsofa is constructed with superior materials, including wear-resistant covering designed to withstand everyday use for many years and provide safe warmth for seated guests.

In addition to its visual appeal, the Hotsofa can also reduce a facility’s costs and environmental footprint, bringing new life to an otherwise unsightly radiator during building renovations.

“One of our core values is to ‘awaken the artist,’ and the Hotsofa does just that,” says Kriekels. “It unites sexy design with functionality to transform the space into a ‘hot’ place to relax.”
