Knitted Radiator

PortwebAt this year's Royal College of Art graduation show, Kelly Jenkins showed Overloooked, aka The Kintted Radiator. The radiator is designed to be heated with water or hot wire and the temperature of each row can be individually controlled. Jenkins's degree is in Constructed Textiles. From The Guardian:

'It's an interactive radiator,' she says. 'Industrial knitting and everyday objects are both overlooked and taken for granted, and I wanted to focus attention on them.

It works like a normal piece of knitting. Each row is independent from the other, so you can unlink rows, or fold it up and put it away. It can also be customised. You can have just one row of seven stitches, or it can be made to any shape or scale.'
