Pakhalé created Add-On Radiator with a beginner’s mind, as if the radiator was being made for the very first time. This defiance to rely on conventional notions of the generic radiator led to a design that implied something not merely novel, but actually new. He started from the premise of what a radiator ought to do, which is to effectively warm the air around it. Proceeding to sculpt the piece with a high degree of abstraction as an assembly of modular elements creating rhythmic volumes and densities, Pakhalé created a unique modular heating system based on an element which can be integrated into any architectural setting. Add-On Radiator can be placed on a wall, recessed or used as a space divider connected to floor and ceiling. It is not only a typological innovation, but also fulfils more utilitarian needs than conventional radiators – offering faster temperature regulation with less power – and conforms to international safety requirements.
