Unlike other items on this list, which seem utterly unnecessary, this radiator is quite genius. It might seem weird at first glance, but if you think about it, there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation behind this design. Its round shape provides heat in every direction, while most radiators can only be pointed towards one spot.
Also, since the pillar is already there, taking up this space, there’s no reason why they shouldn’t make the most of it. The people who designed this radiator were clearly trying to work with what they have and make the most out of the surroundings.
