Spotted (and admired) on Finnish blogger Minna Jones’ Time of the Aquarius, the dual-purpose Dyson Hot + Cold fan, which cools your space in the summer and heats it in the winter.

Above: “First thing we do when we come to our country place on the archipelago is start to warm up the place; we have radiators and a fireplace, but it takes time. With our new heater we can get the heat from +6 Celsius (42.8 Fahrenheit)  to +24 Celsius (+75.2 Fahrenheit) in an hour,” reports Minna.

Above: “After the cabin heats up, I move the heater to the corner where I also keep my 1970s vacuum cleaner tucked under the bed in a basket,” Minna says.
