IL COCCIO Design Edition Ceramic Humidifiers

The weather's been weird here in Los Angeles. Yesterday there was a frenetic chilly wind that sent the french windows in my apartment banging. On went the heat and I woke up this morning parched, my skin crackling. I should have used a humidifier. But I'm a little squeamish about them; they seem like a breeding ground for germs. Better these, which use the radiator heat to disperse steam.

Designed by some of our favorite designers, including Patricia Urquiola, they use the heat of the radiator to heat the water-filled ceramic to produce steam. Some of them even perform double-duty:

  • The model in photo 2 holds objects and the water filled side can also keep plants moist
  • In the summer, the model in photo 3 becomes a vase
  • Because it fits between the radiator and the wall, the model in photo 4 can be used on all types of radiators.
  • The model in photo 5 evokes an old factory, adding some decorative whimsy to a practical object.
