When designing a bathroom, the choice of the radiator is particularly important, as styling and practicality both play an equally significant role. The Tubes Radiatori catalogue includes both heated towel rails devised to lend the bathroom a marked designer feel, as well as radiators that, while suitable for heating and furnishing any setting, can also be equipped with specific accessories – shelves, towel rails, hooks, sponge tidies, large handles – which make them ideal for the most private room in any home.
Montecarlo, design by Peter Jamieson
Montecarlo has a multiple soul: a heated towel rail and radiator, and also a stylish open storage unit. Available in a horizontal, vertical and square version, it can be fitted with accessories such as practical shelves for bathroom accessories that can be freely positioned within the structure.
“The magic ritual of warm towels from the radiator each morning is suspended during the summer months. The Montecarlo radiators maintain their usefulness in summer and winter, shelving the spare towels, soaps, shampoos, brushes, mirrors and slippers.” (Peter Jamieson)
Montecarlo has been conceived to function either electrically or as part of the heating installation. It is available in the chromed version and the coloured version in all RAL colours.
Rift – design by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba with Matteo Fiorini
Rift is a modular, component-based radiator, designed to satisfy the customization needs of any designer. It is made up of two modules in extruded aluminium which can be arranged horizontally or vertically, aligned, unaligned or inverted to form symmetrical or asymmetrical compositions. Its versatility is further enhanced by the line of accessories, which includes shelves, making the radiator perfect for living rooms or bedrooms, along with heated towel rails, which are ideal for the bathroom. Rift is available in electric, hydraulic and mixed versions.
The greatest new feature of Rift, which makes it the perfect radiator for renovations, is great, patented technical innovation relating to installation that is much simpler than for traditional radiators.
Scaletta – design by Elisa Giovannoni
Scaletta’s design is far cry from traditional radiator shapes, and it offers the utmost freedom of positioning it in any room in the home: from the bathroom to the kitchen, living room and even the bedroom. What’s more, since it does not require installation, you can move it to another room in the home if necessary, and also take it with you when you move home.
With an electric power supply, Scaletta is made of aluminium in a wide range of Tubes colours, and it is available in two versions: wall-mounted and free-standing, both of which come with a pulley that winds up the electric cable. Both versions are accessorised with a hook and a sponge tidy. The free-standing version can also be fitted with a practical storage shelf.
Square – design by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba
Square is characterised by the lightness of the structure made entirely of aluminium, which is only 22 mm thick. Heat spreads perfectly evenly all over this radiating surface. Square is available in the rectangular or square-shaped version, for vertical or horizontal installation, and in the Square Composition version, that comprises four different configurations thanks to the combination of three different types of heating plates controlled by a single valve.
The Circle hook and the matching long handle that works as a heated towel rail make Square particularly ideal for a bathroom setting. quare is available in hydraulic and electric version, in a wide range of colours and sizes, to allow the greatest personalisation in interior design as well as an adequate heat output even in large-sized rooms. Square has won the Red Dot 2007 and Design Preis 2008 awards.
t.b.t. – design by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba
The t.b.t. design originated from our wish to express the character of American industrial spaces. t.b.t. looks like a simple pipe covered in chromed brass. It is available in the wall-mounted version, for both horizontal and vertical installation, and in the free-standing version with a support base. The elements are available in the plated finishes: polished chrome, black nickel and polished tin and in more than 110 colours, and in the hydraulic, electric or mixed version.
