Leading fashion designer Richard Nicoll has revamped the look of the Wattson energy monitor after joining forces with broadcaster Sky to celebrate Earth Day on April 22.
The limited edition eco-monitor has been given a Nicoll style makeover and now boasts a retro star print design to make a fashionable addition to households looking to save money and cut their energy consumption.
Created by UK design collective DIY Kyoto, the wireless Wattson device allows consumers to view how much electricity is being used around the house at any one time and can help cut annual electricity bills by up to 25%.
Sky is launching the limited edition Wattson as part of its support for Earth Day in the UK. The event has been marked all over the world since 1970 as a day to encourage people to appreciate the planet and raise awareness for climate change issues.
In addition to making the designer energy saving monitors available for free to help people cut their energy consumption around the home; Sky is also scheduling a day of environmental programmes on nine channels ranging from green-themed The Simpson's episodes on Sky1 to documentaries such as Extreme Ice' in HD on National Geographic.
As a designer Richard Nicoll's catwalk collections have received high praise in recent years since his first collection was shown in 2005 and was named "Best Young Designer" at the recent Elle Style Awards.
Nicoll said "The environment is a subject close to my heart so I wanted to lend my creative support to this project with Sky and help raise awareness for Earth Day. Hopefully my design for the energy saving monitor will help people make changes around the house to have a positive and lasting impact on the environment."
