The Rift radiator by Tubes Radiatori wins the iF Design Award 2016
Yet another outstanding achievement for Tubes Radiatori which, thanks to its Rift radiator, has won the iF Design Award 2016, the annual award conferred by the iF International Forum Design GmbH. This is the first acknowledgement for Rift, designed by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba with Matteo Fiorini.
The iF Design Award has rewarded the best brands and products in the design world since the 1950s and it is considered to be one of the major world-wide competitions, drawing in more than 5,000 applicants from 70 different countries each year.
The aim of the iF Design Award is to convey the importance of design in all its aspects, and to celebrate the aesthetic and technological qualities of design products: indeed, among these, Rift was picked out to win in the Building Technology category, and will officially receive the award in Munich on 26th February for its ability to combine technical innovation and impeccable styling in the best possible way.
Rift will be on display from 6th October 2016 until 19th February 2017 at the iF Design Exhibition Hamburg, the permanent exhibition in the centre of Hafencity in Hamburg.
Rift is a modular, component-based radiator, 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 and hydraulic 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.
Tubes offers a number of standard models consisting of double or multiple combinations of Rift, horizontally or vertically aligned, misaligned or reversed by varying sizes and different joints, creating a collection of monumental and customized radiators according to your taste and needs.
