I simply cannot get over how rich the area of industrial design is when it comes to radiators. This is my fourth post on radiators and I simply keep finding more and more ones that I want to blog about.
Karim Rashid (who coincidentally curated an exhibit on design radiators at the MAD Museum in 2009) has now created his own for Caleido in his unmistakable style.
The new models, Kelvin (also referred to as Geiger) and Therme, designed by Rashid are wall-mountable and feature his graphic and vibrant imagery on steel plates.
KELVIN (OR GEIGER):
Size (HXL): 182x54 cm
Wheelbase: 1760 mm
Weight: 37 kg
Power: 924 watts
Introduced at this year's Salone del Mobile, they are not yet on Caleido's website. Please contact them for pricing and availability.

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:

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.
