It's finally here. Three years after its prototype excited imaginations worldwide, Joris Laarman's Droog Design Radiator Heat Wave (below) is available to consumers warmed by its baroque design. Although apparently functionless, the decorative item is a modular heater that can be enlarged to meet needs and suit tastes. The item, made of concrete and aluminium consolidated by glass fibre, costs $38,500 for four basic elements (shipping and installation not included). It is sold through Flea+Cents, 1/F, 34 Queen's Road East, Wan Chai, tel: 2528 0808.
