Desa Industrial Heater

Industrial heaters provide serious warmth for frigid outdoor jobs. But ethnographic research revealed that workers struggled to transport existing 2-wheeled heaters over gravel and snow, and had difficulty maneuvering them into small spaces. Our redesign has

an innovative wheelbarrow format to enable a single person to easily roll the heater over rough jobsite terrain and make tight turns. A tough, oversized cord wrap is integrated into the steel frame, and a wide-mouth fuel tank reduces spills.
