T.B.T. | Floor-standing decorative radiator
Floor-standing chromed brass decorative radiator
The Elements collection is the expression of a desire to eliminate stereotypes and pre-established industrial design processes. In a society that is free from conditioning, objects - whatever kind they may be - can “release themselves” too; that is to say, they can eliminate technical aesthetics and undergo design modifications. So freeing a radiator from its valves and position these at a distance of as much as six metres, thanks to a patented built-in unit, is equivalent to freeing it from its typical technical appearance. This brings about new possibilities of interpretation of form according to aesthetic-intellectual rules that differ from previous ones. For this reason, along with the Basics and Extras collections, the company introduced the Elements collection, created by architects and designers of international renown. Elements becomes a “container of ideas” where the designers are called upon to create radiators that are more closely linked with the aesthetics of the home, where the sensual warmth of heating products is integrated into the architectural space with the same dignity and importance in project terms as other contemporary interior decoration elements.
t.b.t. has the appearance of a simple tube of sizeable dimensions, which is covered in chromed or painted brass and has a diameter of 7 cm, inside which a special circuit allows the circulation of hot water or the insertion of a special electrical resistor. t.b.t. is available in the hydraulic, electrical or mixed versions. In the latter case, one of the two terminal knobs, perfectly integrated into the design of the main body, acts as a switch for turning on and off. A version with floor attachments with supporting plinth releases the radiator from its traditional position by thewall.
