The Radiator Lounge [1] is a crazy chaise made from recycled radiators that recently won the jury award and people’s choice award at the Seattle Design Jam [2] during the Seattle Design Festival [3]. The project challenge was to create urban furniture from a sheet of plywood, 4 2x4s, a drop-cloth, and one item from the Seattle used building supply store ReStore [4]. This one wild card drove the design, and of course the team chose the heaviest and ugliest thing they could find. The radiator offered a consistent module and gave the team an opportunity to sculpt its pieces into a lounge chair which “isn’t as uncomfortable as it looks”. Take a look at what critics have regarded as “arguably the most important reuse of cast iron radiator modules in the past couple of months” by clicking through the photos below.
