DESIGNING THE CELCIUS – A FANTASTIC ADVENTURE
2010 – APRIL, THE STORY BEGINS
From the beginning we have made the decision of getting surrounded with the best experts in management of cold, design, light, electronics,…
The specifications defined by the team were clear:
1. French production and “hand-made” mounting
2. Innovative and attractive design
3. Reaching the ideal storage temperature between 11Cº and 15Cº
5. Low power consumption
6. Of a minimum size
7. Vertical automatic opening/closing sliding door
8. Very high standard finishes
Search of the best components and their update every 6 months, dozens of drawings by the architects, countless tests, of technical validation, invention of a new type of computer card to control the opening/closing, the security captors, the lightning scenery and the management of cold.
It would be impossible, unless a book is written, to reveal the thousands of working hours, the dead-ends the team found sometimes, but also the incredible enthusiasm that has allowed to override the doubts.
6 years have been needed to design the first prototype validated by an official laboratory and to conform to European Union standards.
During 2017, 15 Celcius were sent and installed in various exceptional hotels suites and private apartments, this test period displayed a better than expected result, 90% of user Guests asked for purchase in their hotels or apartments.
True and complete innovation, Celcius is now produced in limited series and assembled by hand in our French workshops.
Each exemplary is meticulously manufactured, each Celcius is unique.
