“Square Bench is a heating element which borrows its shape from the world of art. Slim, angular metal sheets, with a nod to the sculptures by Donald Judd. A seat as an ideogram that miraculously emanates heat. An ambiguous, radical object; Square Bench is not just a furniture item and it is not just a functional element, but combines both features in a total design”. Ludovica+Roberto Palomba

Square Bench stems from the idea of shaping heat adding the comfort of a bench to relax on. The plug & play Square Bench radiator is the perfect example of a fully functional product, which is easy to move and carry, and that can be placed anywhere, from a bedroom to a private apartment, or even a spa, thanks to the electric power supply and its freestanding structure.
The interior part of the bench is made of aluminium and it is coated with steel. The heat is diffused through a particular profile made specifically for the Square line.
Today Square Bench becomes part of the new Plug&Play collection presented by Tubes on the occasion of the Salone del Mobile 2018. This collection marks the starting point of the unprecedented concept of personal warmth: the heating objects, free from installation constraints, go beyond the static nature of architecture and open up to the human dimension which, by definition, is in constant movement and evolution.
