A beautiful objet d’art. Or so you might think, because this wall-mounted object does not immediately reveal its true function. Until you touch the surface and feel the warmth radiating out from it. Then you realize that this art work is in fact a room heater. And your surprise had not come about by mere chance: this product is the outcome of artistic inspiration associated with years of material research. Corian® is the name of the material which has enabled Runtal to develop a new formal language for the design of its room heaters. The theme of concentric circles styled by Christian Ghion is reminiscent of a drop of water which causes gentle waves to radiate out when it hits the surface. Waves of water for the eye. But behind them waves of warmth. Rest and movement inspired by the art of zen.

Product description

Christian Ghion (int)

Born in 1958 at Montmorency/France, Christian Ghion decided to study design after taking a degree in law. He graduated in 1987 from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la création industrielle (ENSCI) and went on to win the “Grand Prix de la création de la ville de Paris” in 1990 — since then Christian Ghion has been working for prestigious furniture manufacturers (including Cappellini, Driade, Salviati, Ventura, Sawaya & Moroni).

His works can now be admired in the Guggenheim Museum New York, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris; they all share a design language which imparts meaning and emotion to their distinctive simplicity.
