Reimagining The Common Radiator As A Portable Campfire
'Rethinking the Radiator' is Rochus Jacob's modern-day approach towards temperature control.
Most New Yorkers are used to the hissing and clanking of the radiator – a noisy reminder of something we have no control over. Enter, New York based industrial designer, Rochus Jacob, who decided to change all that with his concept ‘Rethinking the Radiator.’ His campfire inspired design suggests placing the apparatus in the middle of a living space, allowing it to heat the room faster while saving energy (and money). Rochus considered the fact that heat, in every culture holds a significant value, whether it be emotional or social. The heating system works using hot water or steam just like regular radiators and can be integrated into any home.
