Hot-water horizontal 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.
Tubes Radiatori presents Rift as further step forward in its research into technical and styling innovation of the radiator.
Rift is a modular, component-based radiator, which can also be made to measure, designed to satisfy the customisation 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 in order to form compact, symmetrical or asymmetrical sculptures. 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, 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 which is much simpler than for traditional radiators. Precise centring is no longer necessary for connection to the plumbing system which for Rift occurs by means of a single collector with flexible centring.
