Although winter is coming closer, temperatures are still quite mild. Only in the early morning you notice that the radiators are warm. I don’t know about you, but to me radiators are very sturdy and basic objects. And when they become too old to use anymore they are difficult to recycle. So luckily there are some designers who know a way to upcycle them and thereby giving these robust radiators a second life. A few examples can be seen on upcycleDZINE like the Radiator Lounge, Re-Pet lamp, Heater Seat & Chair and off course the fantastic zig-zag chair called Hot!
Radiator turned into honest furniture design
And I’m so glad that I found another one to add to this list. Last week via Pinterest I stumbled upon Spanish Interior side Micasa. Here I saw an interior design that showed an upcycle design called ‘Radiator Table‘ by Bonba studio in Spain.
The Radiator Table is made out of a discarded cast iron radiator with glass top and wheels. It couldn’t be more simple and honest. And that makes this piece of furniture so attractive, the combination of a basic shape and the story behind the upcycled item.
Bonba studio is founded by Alex Llusia and Kika Estarellas, with bases in Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca. After studying in Barcelona, ’their openness and willingness to learn’ took them to work in different studios in Europe and collaborated on different projects. After their return, they founded Bonba Studio.

Besides the cool looking Radiator Table they have a portfolio with very nice interior designs and projects worth checking out.
