Gallery: Radiator Lounge: A Crazy Chair Made From A Recycled Radiator!

 

The Radiator Lounge is a crazy chaise made from recycled radiators that recently won the jury award and people’s choice award at the Seattle Design Jam during the Seattle Design Festival. 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. 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.
