ORIGAMI | Wall-mounted decorative radiator
Modular wall-mounted towel warmer
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.
Light and free like a butterfly, extending and folding like a folding screen, enveloping and cosy like an embrace, capable of producing heat for any room thanks to a significant yet discrete presence. This is Origami, designed by Alberto Meda, a high efficiency electric plug & play radiator that liaises with its surroundings, offering the possibility of separating two rooms, of preserving privacy, of enhancing the atmosphere of discretion, increasing the feeling of well-being.
Origami protects, heats and gives character to the environment in a lightweight, sinuous way, without setting limits, but with the sole purpose of recreating the sacredness of our private and essential interior space; it is a poetic, sinuous, jointed and flexible item of interior décor, which gives rise to product types and configurations based on a rounded module alternating voids with the heating core.
The wall-mounted version was devised with a single or double element. In the double version, the movement of the two modules emulates a butterfly beating its wings, radiating heat and changing when needed into an elegant retractable towel rail.
Unlike traditional radiators, with Origami towels are completely enveloped and hidden from view when the radiator is folded up onto the wall, optimising space.
