Above: The fantasy radiator by Brandoni
I've written about the plethora of unusual looking radiators and heated towel racks before..... however a bunch of new ones have emerged on the market, several introduced at recent design shows. It amazes me how the designs continue to get even more unusual and yet still remain functional.
There are so many wonderful examples of all types of different looking water heated radiators, electric radiators, wall mounted radiators, freestanding radiators, even towel racks, that I could only share with you some of my favorites. And here they are:
Above: The radiator model “Oblò – oval” by Brandoni Radiators, has won the “Comfort & Design 2008” Award raffled from the International Fair in Milan.
In addition to their award winning radiator shown above, Brandoni has many beautiful and unusual designs from their new 2008 and last year's 2007 collections. See just some of my personal favorites below.
Brandoni is only one of the several companies who've turned radiators into works of art and sculpture.
