satyendra pakhalé: add on infinite radiator for tubes

‘add-on infinite radiator’ by satyendra pakhalé for tubes

indian-born amsterdam-based industrial designer satyendra pakhalé‘s modular radiator ‘add-on’ has been developed for italian radiator manufacturer tubes. although the work has a utilitarian aspect in the function of a house, this heating unit is also a modular sculpture. the adaptable element has a 12 x 24 cm (4.5 x 9 inches) base system to which smaller components may be added. with the four-armed parts, the surface area is maximized in order to better distribute high temperatures while the aluminum material from which the piece takes its form allows for rapid heat exchange.

the lightweight structure boasts an in-wall support system which makes possible the radiator to function as a partition element as well. in order to maintain control over the layout of rooms in both residential and commercial spaces, the manual and balancing valves are separate from the heating element, enclosed in an inbuilt group which can be placed up to six meters (twenty feet) from the unit.

‘add-ons’ is on show at designer’s days in paris from the 31st of may until the 4th of june.

the module can be attached as a wall fixture of a floating divider 

the design doubles as a towel heater 

the heater is suitable for many environments 

available in many shades

  • For how many years now was this been advertised?

    Radiator fan says:
  • this project is 10 years old!

    fmancas says:
  • I think it was first presented in 2008. Why everybody is interested in the completely new and not also on how designers and companies update projects? Some things that get better, when they are in production, compared to the time of presentation with prototypes.
