We love the idea of tech disguised as other things, especially if that piece of tech is typically an eyesore. Radiators haven't always been the most attracted appliances in the home and we're so glad that designers are rectifying that. Wouldn't you love to have a beautiful radiator in your living room that everyone just thought was a piece of art?

The Milano Radiator: Beautiful Sculpture that Keeps You Warm Having your radiator in the middle of a room, disguised as a lamp or piece of art is ideal. When we first saw this Milano Radiator, we thought they were floor to ceiling lamps!

Home and Personal Radiator was designed by Julien Bergignat with the average person in mind. We're all conscience of how much we turn our heat on in the winter months and often (especially in this economy) we'd rather sit on our couch with a sweatshirt and a fuzzy blanket than turn our heat up super high. With this radiator, you can actually use removable pieces to place on the back of your neck, under your shirt — wherever!

Runtal's Customized Concept Radiator is disappointing because it's just a concept — we'd really like it to become a reality. Being a city dweller in a pretty old city, we talk to a lot of people that have problems with their old radiators, in a design sense. They can't cover them up with curtains, and they don't like the look of shorter curtains. This Runtal radiator most certainly wouldn't need to be covered it, it doubles as a piece of art.

The Elegant Hanging Tiki Column Radiator By ADhoc this is an interesting and innovative approach to home radiators. It would certainly intrigue and interest your guests — plus it's another radiator that doubles as art!

This Radiator Design is Hot! A radiator for dummies? Yes! This radiator obviously spells "HOT" and when it is in fact hot, it turns red. As Taryn originally mentioned, this would look great in a modern loft.

Runtal Splash Radiators Can you even spot where the radiator is? It took us a few seconds before we could figure it out. Another amazing example of a radiator doubling as a piece of art. No one would have a clue your radiator was on the wall.
