A radiator lasciviously curved like a dancing woman has been produced by Peter Rankin Design for Radiating Style, a designer radiator manufacturer. The model is called Charlotte and has been dubbed the world’s first supermodel radiator. According to Rankin, it ‘blurs the traditional boundaries between art form and practical function’. Inspiration for the form was drawn from ‘suits of armour ranged around a Chateau ballroom’ and ‘a sketch of the real Charlotte half-dancing in a cafÃ©,’ says Rankin. Radiating Style hopes to begin retailing Charlotte from May.
