The Radiator as Sculpture

A Radiance All Their Own.  (The New York Times, 11/5/2013)

Not just for hissing anymore.  But Mr. van Leeuwen is not alone among Europeans in reimagining the radiator as sculpture. His Continental peers have designed dozens of conversation starters, radiators that resemble a forest grove, a paper clip, a garden hose that uncoils and snakes around a room, and even a wall-hung homage to an artistic masterpiece. Hotech, an Italian radiator company, has a collection with names like Chagall and Fabergé. Its David model is a beefy male torso.   (Plus you'll learn where the New York Times got its headline.)
