Bring a little outdoors indoors with these nature inspired towel warmers and radiators by Marco Pisati for K8 Radiatori of Italy. K8 has introduced a new line of thermal furnishing designs to offer its customers modern and alluring solutions for the bathroom with refined and updated shapes. These products aim at enhancing any ambience and architecture, with new contemporary styles in elegant gold and silver finishes or colorful powder coated options. Crafted of steel to last a long time, but equipped with an extruded aluminium core easing the thermal exchange and making heating quicker.
Nature is a set of towel warmers radiators inspired by the garden. The twisted branches, buds and flowers that characterize the design are the natural elements on which to hang towel and bathrobes.
Directly inspired by the slender growth of a forest of bamboo, this radiator is both minimalistic and elegant. By using a unique production process, no two radiators will ever be created with exactly the same design; as would be found in nature. It harmoniously brings the world of nature, in a modern and classic form, in to the home.
Like it’s sister product the Bamboo, the Bamboo Evolution is also inspired by a tropical forest of slender bamboo shoots. The new radiator, with its front and rear curves and floor to ceiling mounting system, becomes a elegant and modern room divider.
A new radiator with a design reminiscent of the minimalist decor of the old Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals. Like an ancient door, carved and embossed, "Mosaic" brings classic architecture into the modern home.
Trama, is a minimal designed radiator, featuring a coloured and dynamic design, changing the white top surface. Its peculiarity depends on the depth effect depending on the two parallel tops. The external top, bright white, is drilled as a simple and dynamic embroidered fabric. The underneath top features frosted and modern patterns. Trama is a radiator to be used in contemporary ambiences, standing out as a unique unit, perfectly mixed with the coloured and modern new designed accessories. Available in different colours and finishes. The essential design, the contrast between two surfaces and two colours, the detail of the vent cover, TRAMA enhances the modern ambiences and becomes the real scene protagonist.
With its elegant curved frame which embellishes and conceals a modern integrated lighting system, "Spekkio" is a heater that performs multiple functions in a single design: radiator, mirror and lighting system. For this reason, its inclusion is ideal in the bathroom, the bedroom, but also the entrance hall where both form and function combine to add to any interior.

Maybe it's because I'm a native Californian, but I've never really given radiators a lot of thought. That is not until I started coming across some of these in my dutiful quest for what's hip. Did you all know that so many unusual radiators were out there?
The following images are just a few of radiators on the market available for purchase. These aren't protoypes, these are the real deal. Some are so amazingly beautiful, you'd want them even in the warmest of climates.
Like say, California.
