Trame, the radiator of Elements collection by Tubes, designed by Stefano Giovannoni

Creativity meets technology, functionality meets aesthetics in Trame, the radiator with dazzling lines and striking versatility, the latest addition to the Elements collection by Tubes. Designed by Stefano Giovannoni, Trame is the result of experimental work with a dual research purpose, design and technology innovation: the heating element is revolutionised through a free and easy approach, introducing a brand-new way of looking at a traditional (and often seen as not very interesting) household item. Tubes has been working for some time on the theme of reinterpreting the traditional radiator, producing results which touch on the contemporary art world. And now it's going even further, giving us something which is between the unique and the very best in craftsmanship. In Trame, the traditional tubular steel elements are treated like coloured threads, pursuing each other through warp and weft, creating attractive backdrops on the wall. Fluid lines follow one another in a dainty game of blocks and voids, amplifying the metal’s reflective properties producing changeable, lovely, three-dimensional effects. Trame is available in hydraulic, electric or mixed versions, with a choice of horizontal or vertical, from 52.5 to 196 cm, and available in three different models: Trame 14, Trame 20 and Trame 28, according to the diameter of the tubular elements. This gives a total of 279 possible size variations, and the greatest design freedom and ease when positioning it in rooms. As far as materials are concerned, the radiator is manufactured in low carbon content steel, perfect for creating the curved shapes which make it stand out. In accordance with the standard EN 442, Trame has been trialled at the Polytechnic of Milan laboratories which have verified the heat output and its compliance in terms of quality with the highest European standards. Giovannoni’s design fits seamlessly into the ideal line which makes up the Elements collection, the expression of the research and experimental work with which Tubes has explored this new concept of radiator. Trame has been devised not just as a heating system component, but as an essential part of the architectural structure and design for interiors, imbued with a strong personality and always able to guarantee the very best functional performance.
