With Trame, the traditional steel tubular elements have become slim coloured threads which, with lightness and flexibility, follow-on from each other between the warp and the weft, creating a fabric of heat. Flowing lines repeat themselves in a delicate play of planes and spaces, while the metal lends itself to changeable, soft and three- dimensional effects to inhabit the walls of anywhere in the home. The project is a complete technological innovation: for the first time the valves are not dependent on the heater and are connected remotely, so as not to affect the softness of the design in any way. Depending on the light and the observer’s point of view, the fine tubular elements that make up Trame appear to change in consistency and move in a curved fashion, making the radiator a multifaceted object that is never the same.
Trame is available in horizontal and vertical versions from 51.5 to 190 cm and comes in three distinct models: TRAME 14, TRAME 20 and TRAME 28, based on the diameter of the tubular elements chosen. Giovannoni’s design fits perfectly with the ideal line which characterises the Elements collection, the expression of the research and experimental work with which Tubes explores a new concept of the radiator. Trame was conceived not only as a system component, but as an essential part of the architectural structure and interior design, with a strong personality and always able to guarantee the maximum in practical performance.
The Heat is On: Tubes
'Products developed for architecture' is how Italian brand TUBES describes its striking, resolutely sculptural radiators and towel rails, designed to shape the interior landscape as well as heat it. The manufacturer's story is one of a steadfast
