Radiator, Heatwave, 2004
This is a Radiator.
Laarman's Rococo-inspired Heatwave radiator consists of modular units cast from reinforced concrete. Disputing the modernist correlation between functionality and streamlined forms, Laarman asserts that high decoration can foster increased function: ͞A radiator needs a large surface to give its heat to the air. The more decoration a radiator has, the better it works.͟
