Antrax IT at Bologna Water Design in collboration with Daniel Libeskind
Tavola and Tavoletta are two radiators featuring a minimalist, geometrical and almost scholastic look, but backed by a design that is worthy of the major iconic products which have made designer radiator history.

TT is the evolution of Serie T, Antrax's latest icon radiator, designed by Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez.
TT is the result of the continuous and repetitive parallel attachment of Serie T profile bars. The profile bar gives rise to a radiator affording superior heating performance levels, even when operating at low temperatures. Owing to its particular construction, TT is the ideal solution in homes with high heating efficiency levels (passive houses, class A and B homes) and when replacing radiators or refurbishing existing buildings.
TT is available to match the customer's specific size and heating efficiency requirements.
Flaps is the new radiator by Antrax designed by Victor Vasilev.
The idea behind this project came from observing the shapes and functioning of plate radiators. The 'clean-cut' shape of the radiator disappears when the accessory required to hook on a bathrobe or towel is added to it.
Made entirely of recyclable aluminium affording high heating efficiency, it is distinguished by a 3 mm thick plate, interrupted by flaps which give the radiator its name and which are used as towel rails.
Flaps is available in two widths and two heights and also in the electric version.
It can be made in over 200 different colours.
BB, as in Baby Bubble, is the new bioethanol fireplace designed by Andrea Crosetta.

The fireplace is easy to install and can be fitted in any room to function as an additional heating system.
BB features a painted carbon steel structure and stainless steel burner.

Victor Vasilev was born in 1974 in Plovdiv , Bulgaria. At the age of 15 his family immigrated to Israel. In 1996 he moved to Milan to study architecture at the Politecnico. Before graduating, he spent a year as un exchange student at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.
During his stay in Denmark, he was deeply influenced by the achievements of the Nordic architects both in architecture and in product design. After ending his studies, he decided to stay in Milan and in 2004 started his own practice.
In 2010 he was selected as one of three winners in the Dressed Stone design contest promoted by Marmotech Carrara & Antonio Lupi.
In 2011 he was awarded a first price in the MDF+Cristalplant design contest for his ‘MAMBA’ shelf/desk. The same year marks the beginning of his collaboration with Living Divani and in 2012 he designs a modular containing system ( CTline) for Boffi
The design ideas are inspired by solutions developed for the domestic environment, which represent a major part of the studio’s commissions.
Matteo Thun was born in Bolzano, Italy, in 1952, studied at the Salzburg Academy under Oskar Kokoschka, took his degree in architecture in Florence in 1975 with Adolfo Natalini and moved to Milan in 1978, where he met and started working with Ettore Sottsass.
In 1981, he was a co-founder of the Memphis group, the design movement that so shaped events in the eighties.
The next year, the Vienna Academy for Applied Arts appointed him to the chair in product design and ceramics. Leaving Memphis, he founded the Studio Matteo Thun in Milan in 1984 and served as Creative Director with Swatch in 1990-93.
Matteo Thun stands for long lasting solutions with holistic approach. Architecture means designing the soul of the place. This implies an aesthetic, economic and technological sustainability. It means to create a synthesis of the existing, the purpose and the area. The solution is different, each time. Product design must reflect the soul of the brand. It is architecture of simple, pure and beautiful gestures to serve a daily life that goes well beyond our present life.
Matteo Thun has won the ADI Compasso d Oro Award for design excellence three times and only recently has received the Wallpaper* Design Awards 2010. His Side Hotel in Hamburg was chosen as Hotel of the Year in 2001, the Vigilius mountain resort won the Wallpaper Design Award in 2004 and the Radisson SAS Frankfurt was chosen as the best hotel opened in the year in the Worldwide Hospitality Awards in 2005. The Prix Acier Construction was given to him for the Hugo Boss Strategic Business Unit in Switzerland in 2007.
Matteo Thun was inducted into the Interior Hall of Fame in New York in December 2004 and is a member of RIBA, the Royal Association of British Architects.

Designed and engineered by Andrea Crosetta, Loft is a modern and eclectic linear radiator, simple but sophisticated at the same time, designed for those who live in city lofts and apartments in large cities.
The radiator is made of aluminium and its surface has a texture made up of little waves that create an unusual effect and make it soft and pleasant to touch. Thanks to its versatility, it can be installed both horizontally and vertically and up to three elements can be placed side by side.
The formal characteristics of this radiator ideally place it in contemporary style environments.
“When people think there is nothing more to invent, the mind looks inward and its many experiences, images, shapes and objects come together and explode into a new idea. The innovation continues….” (Andrea Crosetta).
Tubone has been created as a simple clean design, with proportion as the chief identifying characteristic. Each element consists of a tubular oval ring 60mm in diameter with 180 degree curves at each end – a clean and simple object which provides a starting point for the creation of a complete collection of radiators encompassing many functional and aesthetic needs. The nature of the design allows for total flexibility and having elements either singly, side by side, or one on top of another. These can be installed either horizontally or vertically, placed on the floor, under a window, or become a bench. Thanks to the flexibility of the design, it can be installed in any room, including the bathroom where it can also be used as a towel warmer.
Born in 1968 he grew up in a world of art touched by music (he studied at the conservatory), sculpture, painting and architecture through his studies, first at the high school of the arts, and later at the University of Venice Department of Architecture. During his studies, he constantly maintained direct contact with the labour market thus learning a wide range of construction techniques in such fields as wood-working, metal-working, ceramics, etc. In the early 1990s his first designer radiators went into production and quickly won market acclaim.
Among the various projects, of particular note is the collection of fireplaces and radiators he has designed for Antrax. Indeed, not only did these items gain significant market success, they have also been selected for various awards such as the Compasso d’oro for the TUBONE radiator.
More than just a heater; a piece of furniture that integrates into spaces with great personality but doesn't want to be the centre of attention. In terms of its main characteristics, this piece is basic, light and eclectic.
With only an aluminium profile you can create "warm" configurations: individual and combined shelves, object holders, towel rails etc for the bathroom, entrance, hall, kitchen and living room.
Teso…a warm travel companion: discrete, accommodating, helping to keep things tidy, but with a handy hook for potential unsuspected mess.
Everything can appear perfect and at the same time perfectly casual, without ever arousing unease.
An unusual musical instrument always in your memory, but never created.
A free composition of shapes that, subjectively dressed, become new inspirations for decoration, never the same, never repetitive, breaking the mould, fantasy and taste personalised by a reassuring warmth, next to which you can hide at "cold" times. Architecture? Design? Perhaps…
Teso can be installed horizontally and vertically and in both cases can also be used as an elegant towel warmer.
