Apr 28 2009Sure, Why Not?: Animal-Shaped Radiators

radiator 1.jpg

Guus van Leeuwen's Domestic Animal radiators heat your home without all the shedding and feces associated with keeping a real animal in the house.

[The] radiators are made using between 40 and 60 pieces of steel tubing which are bent using a computer and then welded together by the Eindhoven-based designer. The radiators can then be connected to the heating pipes via the tail. The pelts are real and have been filled with wheat seeds in order to conserve the heat.

Well it's about time! You hear that, Mr. Badger? It's time for you to make like a tree and get out of here. I mean it -- OUT! Oh, being stubborn are we? Fine. *BLAM!* Badger steak for everyone! And, on a 100% completely unrelated note that has absolutely nothing at all to do with sleeping with a badger -- anybody know how to get blood out of bedsheets?

Hit the jump for closeups of the different animals.

Que tacky.

I would put the Ram in my room

Brings new meaning to the phrase "animals in heat", methinks.

Now if there was a raptor one I might consider it...

I want a radigator.

...or one shaped like an angry robot. I'd get one too but I'd probably keep it in a closet

umm.... creepy.


This is a complete photoshop job. you can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never Back Down where Max found a caveman frozen in a glacier and when he thawed him out found the caveman still alive. He took the caveman away to a zoo, and studied him, but as he studied the ancient man he realized he was as much a man as Max, and didn't feel good about keeping him as a captive animal.

impending TMI... A lot of girls read your site - are you sure you want to be asking them for tips on getting blood out of sheets? :P

I look up this site everyday and being a self described geek I have to say this really sucks! I mean the name geekologie implies that this is a site dedicated to all things geeky, not all things hillbilly! I'm jonesing for some sh!t tailor made for nerds! Anyway sorry to complain GW, you're doing a better job than I could (not to mention you probably get more a$$ than a toilet seat!).

The first idiot to say fur is murder will receive a boot to the head.

It's Furder!!...not really I don't care about killing animals....

I still wouldn't buy one though...

@ Gordon
Technically, YOU said it first, as that exact phrase was in your comment.

If you do it, let us know. If you're still conscious that is. Heh.


These look like pretty hot designs to me.


You're so funnies! Go back to the LOLCATS board and leave the rest of the intertubes to us.

@ 16

And you're just so friggin clever! Y'know, mentioning LOLCATS and all. I can do as I damn well please, and that includes making one goddamn joke at your expense. So boo-hoo, suck it up.

Frankly, I don't give a damn. There's never been any sense in arguing with art fags. You're right Frank. You're always right.

"'I met Andy Warhol at a really chic party' Blow it out your hair cause you work at Hardees"

No, I'm not always right. I never said I was. If that's what you want to believe, fine. Good for you.

And art fag? I write in my spare time. Excuse me for offending your delicate tastes, you "Fücking" prick.

Again, you are right.

BAH!!! People SUCK!!!!! Who the hell quits via 4 line email with no notice?

I want a bantha shaped one...

And meat is murder; tasty, tasty murder.

i would get one, but without the dead animal skin on it.

Well this should up the value of my Manhattan apartment!

A dog would be cheaper.

You haven't seen anything until you've seen MACHO MAN Randy Savage trip/FREAK OUT on a bongful of Salvia:


They should use people skins instead of animals, fur is wrong. ha hippies.

ooh ooh badger steak over here!

It's a good idea.Thank you

This takes the designer radiators concept to the extreme.
