This collection of ceramic humidifiers, produced by Italian company Il Coccio, is a tribute to the historic piece, designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1998. Eight different designers, including such celebrities as Giulio IacchettiPatricia UrquiolaDenis SantachiaraAlberto Meda and others, contributed to the project. All pieces follow Castiglioni’s minimalist aesthetic and explore the idea of using the existing radiator as a base. The objects sit on, hang from, or wedge behind it, creating an interesting dynamic between two elements.

I really like the fact that even though each humidifier is unique and shows its creator’s point of view, they are all connected by the same simple and elegant concept. There is a virtue in analog things.

  1. Really nice, but using it with anything but a pure distilled water would create an ungodly residue that – given the shapes – will be rather hard to clean. Though I’m sure these weren’t actually meant to be used for their declared purpose.
