Hot Box

Hot Box, by Barcelona-based Ana Mir and Emili Padros — for Emiliana Design Studio — is a design object with a different type of consumer in mind. If most highfalutin design firms pitch their sleek wares at Prada-clad architects and inner-city aspirants, the envisaged audience for the Emiliana Hot Box is another breed entirely: the chilly sex worker. A translucent structure that emerges from the ground, the Hot Box was created with the notion of providing warmth and light for those who spend a long time waiting on the street — namely prostitutes. The Hot Box shows us, just like Julia Roberts’s happy trajectory in Pretty Woman, that all ladies deserve their turn on a pedestal. The Hot Box is currently on show in Sydney as part of ‘Connections: Experimental Design’ at the Ivan Dougherty Gallery, University of New South Wales, 5 – 21 July 2007.
