“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.
