BIT By Antonio Lupi Design
Extruded aluminium radiator / decorative radiator
BIT is the first designer radiator of antoniolupi, it’s a monobloc made of 100% recycled aluminium. BIT is sustainable and tailor-made, with a high degree of possible customization. It is a quick-change product which is able to add to its primary function of heating, other unexpected functions.
It’s a sustainable product because it’s made of 100% recycled aluminium, with a saving of 95% with respect to the standard production made with primary aluminium.
Aluminium can be recycled perpetually maintaining unchanged its characteristics.
BIT can be adapted to any space and it can be personalized through painting it in the same colour of the wall or in a different colour to create a contrast. The light protrusions in rhythmic sequence create a game of shadows giving to the monobloc certain sculptural features as it were a contemporary low-relief, a quotation of the monochromatic surfaces typical of the minimalistic Avant-gardes in the second half of 1900s.
BIT is not a simple monobloc, it could be defined as a matrix that virtually generates an infinite number of pieces: a single extrusion that can be cut at different heights. A tailor-made designer radiator that can be customized. The length of the element is always 45 cm — but more pieces can be placed side by side- while there are 6 possible heights: 45, 60, 90, 120, 150 and 180 cm.
BIT should meet all heating requirements and it’s available in three different versions: water version, electric version and combined water/electric version.
It can be placed in horizontal or vertical position, in the vertical option it can also be supplied with towel holder.
BitLight radiators are enhanced with the horizontal version available in two lenghts 90 and 120 cm .
Today along with the traditional version is BIT light 7 cm in thickness making it lighter. Proposed in the water and electrical version. The electrical part is dry, with a thermal efficiency increased by 30%, electronics are integrated and manageable with "fil pilote"
Dynamic, tailored, sustainable: BIT Light "draws" the wall thanks to a rhythmic sequence of lights and shadows generated by slight variations of the surface, by alternating recesses and protrusions a heat origami.
Small changes that make a difference. The surface of BIT Light is marked by a sequence of vertical bands generated by small dimensional variations. A sculptural rhythm of "slats" more or less large that determines the overall image of a monolithic radiator made from 100% recycled aluminum. Hence sustainable, customizable because supplied with a primer that can be painted over so that it can be personalized with the desired color, the same color of the wall or in a contrast color.
