The strange-looking Octocube was created by designer Vivien Muller. The contraption is actually a heater created entirely from a single, 90 degree elbow, and that's quite remarkable.
"The Octocube builds up into a radiant heater with a large surface area, and the inherent flexibility and modularity of the elbow," Yanko Design notes. "It is designed to be a sculptural heater that fits in with any interior."
The Octocube is not entirely bad looking but it does remind me a little bit of the human entrails you see in a medical book.
