The CATHEDRAL is a sculpture made from second-hand radiator. The ribs of the radiator visually represent ribs of the Gothic cathedral and the welded top part of the same module is a tower. The sculpture is functional – radiator is filled with oil, which is heated with an electric heater mounted in, and mobile – has metal wheels so it can be moved around the room. This art object has the apparent utilitarian function to warm the house, thus appearing as a prototype, i.e. the first usable product made according to a new design on the grounds of which the design is approved for mass production.
