This is a great solution because you don't have to think will the radiator fits your design, how big or where it should be, you just get one of these and you may have a stealth radiator in every room.

The Kangeri Nomadic Radiator is something different: it is meant to take it with you to warm up spaces where you are. The main bulbous body of Kangeri Nomadic Radiator is made from powder coated aluminum in either black or white with an integrated oak wood handle.

The shape of the aluminum body and the oak wood handle add a sophisticated aesthetic to Kangeri Nomadic Radiator that makes it visually exciting to see in a room. This mobile radiator is a sculpture that heats.
