This radiator was designed as part of the glass pavilion of the Saint-Gobain company at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1937. Etched wiring between two sheets of glass generates heat. The lamp placed in the base creates a light through the glass. The Radiaver is represented in several museum collections, including the Centre Pompidou and the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York. Because the radiator is suitable for 110 V (500 W), we can not test it.
