A name – ‘pettine’ meaning comb - which unequivocally conjures up its shape. This new radiator designed by Andrea Crosetta for Antrax IT was conceived precisely as a macro-scale comb to 'beautify' our homes with. Just like the object it was inspired by, this radiator was designed to be an ornamental and functional element. On one hand its three different sizes means it can be used to create geometric compositions to decorate walls and on the other it is a convenient place for towels or clothing in the bathroom.
Pettine is made of a steel plate with an essential, rigorous profile in 3.5 and 7 elements and 68.5x55 cm, 112.5x55 cm and 176.5x55 cm sizes respectively. It is available in more than 200 colours highlighting its decorative value and giving dynamic and fashionable definition to rooms.
Daniel Libeskind talks about Android, the new radiator designed for Antrax IT
This is not a simple radiator, but rather a genuine sculpture, which enhances the appeal of your home, office or even hotel. Android, designed by Daniel Libeskind for Antrax IT, is an item with an innovative design in both its shape and in the technologies implemented. Its volume recalls Japanese origami, with its unexpected geometrical facets that appear to be made from a sheet of paper, folded and folded over again. The ensuing design consists of a dynamic sequence of angles and lines, obtained in this case from a thin ‘metal page’ that creates shadows and chiaroscuro effects that emphasise its composition.
As a supplement to the standard model, Android IQ is a more sophisticated version, where the profile bar has been cut cross-wise at a particular angle which further underscores its bold design.
Yet the strength of Android does not stop in its iconic outline: the concept devised by the famous architect in fact implies a major focus on sustainability issues, thanks to the use of 100% recyclable material and purpose-devised technology.
Its operation requires very limited water content and it is in fact guaranteed by a circuit that the manufacturer has patented, which allows it to be fully operational very quickly and accomplish considerable energy savings.
Affording high heating efficiency and available in over 200 colour variants from the Antrax IT colour chart, Android can be installed both horizontally and vertically, and it can be accessorised with a dedicated steel towel rail, making it perfect for use in the bathroom. Its shape is not linear and mirrors the style of the radiator, emphasising its expressive impact.
Compact, high-tech, customisable. Lobello, a new product by Antrax IT presented at the Salone del Mobile 2016, is an extremely versatile towel warmer, designed to blend in seamlessly with compact settings in both residential or contract environments.
Designed by Andrea Crosetta, its shape recalls that of a book: a thin sheet of metal, which is completely recyclable, symbolically outlines its cover, which protrudes slightly compared to the "inside" pages. The spine faces up and the volume ideally assumes that traditional inclination due to the force of gravity. The slope of the front and back therefore make it extremely ergonomic: indeed, towels can be arranged in complete contact with the surface to dry them quickly.
A large aluminium grab handle, which is also completely recyclable, secures the radiator to the wall: it features the same finish as the radiator body and it is available in over 200 standard colour variants.
Only available in the electric version with a power rating of 130 Watts and measuring 50 x 42.8 cm, Lobello is a low consumption product which heats up extremely quickly.
A product uniting classic and modern just as a ladder's rungs – ‘pioli’ - link two different levels. This is the image which inspired Pioli, the new radiator designed by Andrea Crosetta for Antrax IT. Bringing together a range of evocations in its design, it is an original take on the moveable ladder which can be located wherever suits concept - against a wall, on a projecting surface or hanging on a hook. The extreme versatility and practicability of this object with its thousands of years of history has come back to life in heating décor. Its shape makes the floor and resting against a wall its natural place but Pioli can also be wall mounted making for a powerful style presence.
Two carbon steel rails extending 207 cm are the supports to which the rectangular section 'ladder rungs' are attached in unconventional way. Grouped into three 40 or 50 cm elements they give a touch of flair and eclectic style to a room.
Pioli's essential uniqueness is highlighted by black or white but it is also available in more than 200 colour variants from the Antrax IT sample range.
An evolution from the TIF model, TI-Q is a carbon steel radiator with a rigorous and essential form. Its squared off edges are rectangular shaped with limited depth and fit into the various rooms of the house with sophisticated discretion or stand out as required.
Its ultra essential design is enhanced by a smooth surface and can be personalised in lively ways: Antrax IT's TI-Q can be fitted with a 'cover' in a range of colours to hide the valves located under the plate. It is an element which can be a natural extension to the radiator in the same colour or attenuate the total purity of its profile with contrast nuances.
There are 200 colours available making it a sculptural monolith if camouflaged with the walls or a pop-up relief element if preferred.
With high thermal yield, TI-Q is an addition to the Antrax IT HOME product family and is capable of changing 'skin' as required.
Antrax warms up design in the new DePadova's showroom in Milan
With the new version of Teso, designed by Dante O. Benini and Luca Gonzo, Antrax IT has created the perfect combination of elements: the radiator is placed at the service of order and comfort, but it can also coordinate perfectly with its surrounding environment. As a matter of fact, the company offers the complete personalisation of Teso: the thin arm anchored to an aluminium plate onto which one can hang towels, dressing gowns or, if installed near the entrance, coats, which can now be requested in over 200 colours. The client can choose to opt for a stark colour contrast, a subtle game of shades or even go for a single-colour decorative-heating solution to minimise Teso's impact: the decision lies in the client's hands. Designed in an extruded aluminium profile, Teso can be positioned both horizontally and vertically and is made up of a large 25cm module which can be installed individually or in two or three pieces; its height is variable and available in 150cm, 170cm and 200cm. The colour scheme available makes Teso a decidedly flexible product: a technological ally which completes the domestic or contract spaces it inhabits with character, elegance or vivacity.
Antrax It at Fuori Salone
Antrax It has been present at "Fuori Salone 2015" in collaboration with Agape 12 showroom, Brera Design District.
During this special event Antrax It has been exhibited its new electric radiator, Total Mirror, designed by Andrea Crosetta.
The family of radiator panels, one of the most versatile and effective produced by Antrax IT, welcomes a new product designed by Andrea Crosetta: TAVOLA MO, conceived to meet today’s market demands for more electric radiators.
The clean and basic TAVOLA MO radiators feature the same geometric style that distinguishes other elements of the collection. The product, which comes in only one electric version, is ideal for using alone and not in combination with other products. It was designed in one compact size that makes it easy to install in any space and setting, even the smallest.
Despite its small size, the TAVOLA MO takes full advantage of the technology and knowhow of Antrax IT, quickly warming the environment thanks to a heating capacity that can reach up to 1500 Watt.
The TAVOLA MO is the right balance between energy efficiency and high performance, and uses both the convective motion of air, which expands the heat throughout the room, and radiation, provided by the front panel which stays pleasantly warm to the touch during operation.
Consisting mainly of aluminium alloy, the TAVOLA MO is available in one 90 x 46 x 11 cm format, with over two hundred colour variations. It can be ordered in three heating capacities of 750, 1000 or 1500 Watt and it comes with Class II resistance, which guarantees a double insulation of IPX4.
The TAVOLA MO can also be ordered with the receiver connected to a programmable radio-frequency thermostat to enable adjusting the room temperature and turning the system on and off, both daily and weekly.
TAVOLA MO: real power in a small body.
Tavola Total Mirror
The new mirrored radiator which completes Tavola collection. It has been presented for the first time during Fuori Salone 2015
ORESTE & EMMA
Oreste and Emma, designed by Andrea Crosetta, are a pair of extremely iconographic radiators designed to heat and bring a touch of gaiety to your home.
Designed for the bathroom area, where they can act as bathrobe warmers, they also fit perfectly with ‘pop’ style public spaces like restaurants, bars and fashionable night spots.
Antrax IT research, aimed at electrical products continues, and today sees the birth of the electric version of the famous Scudi radiator designed by Massimo Iosa Ghini.
This new entry implements the already wide range of electrical products from the Griffe range, also designed to be placed in homes with photovoltaic panels for the autonomous production of electrical energy.
The electric version of Scudi joins the Vu, Tubone, Moon, Saturn and Loft models, together with a wide range of towel heaters.

SATURN & MOON
Saturn & Moon. A highly sculptural piece of Zen minimalism that is calm, contemplative and relaxing.
Saturn features a towel holder handle (Saturn’s ring).
When the towel holder is removed from Moon, it fits perfectly into any environment.
Saturn & Moon features a totally hidden system connection, which is also easily accessible, thanks to the special attachment that allows the radiator to be raised, offering immediate access to the valve and holder. The sphere-shaped surface of Saturn & Moon captures light from the environment and softens the borders of the radiator like the halos at the beginning and the end of the eclipse. Saturn & Moon radiators are perfect for any environment, including homes, hotels, restaurants, cafés, clubs and bars. They can be placed in corridors, airports, on board yachts and cruise ships, as well as in the tiniest bathrooms.
Blending functionality and the thrill of using and owning an item with beauty are the basic ingredients of Francesco Lucchese’s way of
designing. From this philosophy and his creativity comes Zero-Otto, a new concept in designer heating.
Besides heating, the single until model of Zero-Otto can also emit a fragrance into the room as there is an essences-holder formally incorporated into the radiator. We can give the environment the fragrance that reflects our emotions and our mood. This unit has a simple, clean-cut shape that not only heats but can also decorate a contemporary environment. Made of aluminium, Zero-Otto can be installed individually or in twos, paired either on the vertical or horizontal.
Inspired by the model Trim, H_20 is a carbon steel radiator characterised by 20 mm x 15 mm rectangular-section tubular elements. The distance between the elements has been carefully calculated to optimise the thermal performance, increasing the radiant component.
This allows for increased comfort in the building as well as significant energy saving.
Available in different sizes and in over 200 colour variations. It can be installed both vertically and horizontally.

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.
This new fireplace takes the shape of the Bubble fireplace, with an open combustion chamber, and a unique circular opening. You can also customise BB by choosing from 200 colours
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.
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.
With the new version of Teso, designed by Dante O. Benini and Luca Gonzo, Antrax IT has created the perfect combination of elements: the radiator is placed at the service of order and comfort, but it can also coordinate perfectly with its surrounding environment.
As a matter of fact, the company offers the complete personalisation of Teso: the thin arm anchored to an aluminium plate onto which one can hang towels, dressing gowns or, if installed near the entrance, coats, which can now be requested in over 200 colours. The client can choose to opt for a stark colour contrast, a subtle game of shades or even go for a single-colour decorative-heating solution to minimise Teso's impact: the decision lies in the client's hands.
Designed in an extruded aluminium profile, Teso can be positioned both horizontally and vertically and is made up of a large 25cm module which can be installed individually or in two or three pieces; its height is variable and available in 150cm, 170cm and 200cm.
The colour scheme available makes Teso a decidedly flexible product: a technological ally which completes the domestic or contract spaces it inhabits with character, elegance or vivacity.
