Blush Radiator Concept Makes It Obvious When It’s Too Hot To Touch

If you’ve ever brushed up against a radiator, not realizing it was far too hot to touch, you’ll appreciate this concept design called Blush by Thorunn Arnadottir. First off, the complicated pattern of the pipes is designed to look like the veins and nerves running throughout the human body. Since the veins carry warm blood which regulates the temperature in your body, a similar design seemed only fitting for a radiator which instead regulates the temperature in your house.

The Blush is also painted with a special coating that changes color according to its temperature. When the radiator is cold it remains blue, but when its temperature rises above 30°C it ‘blushes’ red.
