Sit Back and Get Warm: The Radiator Chair by Jeroen Wesselink

How many times have you leaned your back against the radiator for extra warmth? Here is a way you can do that and be comfortable. According to The Chair Blog, this design was inspired by Gerrit Rietveld’s Zig Zag chair. Jeroen Wesselink came up with the idea to turn a radiator into a chair- or the other way around, we are not quite sure. Either way, the resulting product is original and not to mention practical. The Radiator Chair provides a backrest and a feet support, perfect  for those cold winter days when one could use extra comfort and warmth. With a striking yellow finish, the chair could be placed in a bold modern living room or in the kitchen. Even though resting on this type of seating item may not be as “rewarding” as crashing into a fluffy armchair, we’re certain you can see its benefits.

    i don’t think they could have selected a more awkward pose for this dude – as he stares off into space and plays with his junk through his pocket.

    Not bad. I wonder if is healthy to get too much heat on your lower back (kidneys). Another thing is the sharp corners.
    Otherwise, good idea!
