1930, the Netherlands

Inventum radiant heater from the period after World War II.
New design ideas came from the US during that period.
This design is by Wim Rietveld (1924-1985, son of Gerrit Rietveld) for Inventum. Type no. KS3.
This heater is a nearly identical variation of the KS 32.

The chromed reflecting part is adjustable.
The measurements: 34 cm wide, 20 cm deep and 22 cm high.
Capacity 2,000 watt, two heat settings via one or two radiant tubes, one filament (the upper one) broke but has been repaired. It functions normally (see photo).
The heater has been fitted with a matching cord.

Wim Rietveld (1924-1985) was of the opinion that pure functionalism would lead to good products. He endeavoured to create designs that not only had a great shape, but which also were sound, practical and inexpensive.
In the 1950s/1960s he designed for the company Inventum, together with
Arie Verbeek and Joop van Osnabrugge, including this radiant heater.
