Hot stuff – the Origami electric radiator by Alberto Meda
Origami is the name of the latest addition to the Tubes Radiatori product family. Their designer, the Italian Alberto Meda, explains: "The idea stems from the desire to create an object with a simple, fluid shape, a sort of screen that can be doubled back, like a folding screen. I like thinking of objects that are essential but conceal a perfected technological complexity. Today we need to surround ourselves with friendly elements with a clear image and a dynamic concept."
Origami is accordingly lightweight, portable and foldable – hence its name. Along with fulfilling its actual function of providing heat, the radiator can also be used to partition rooms and thus create a sense of privacy.
Made of recycled aluminium, the radiator comes in three versions, namely a free-standing one and a wall-mounted one that is available with one module or else with two that can individually be turned on or off according to need. The heater can be had in colours from the Tubes palette to match every ambient in the home environment.
