Design, architecture and culture come together to unveil the most creative, sensitive and innovative bond between design and heat. Ever since it has been in business, Antrax radiators manufacturer has offered a new way of conceiving heat: its strong sensitivity to aesthetic styling has led the company to direct production towards heating solutions that go far beyond their specific function, and are turned into 'furnishing elements that generate domestic well-being'.
Radiators as real design objects
Antrax has contributed in a decisive manner to the evolution of designer radiator design precisely thanks to its ability to reinterpret a common everyday object, often hidden from view, and turn it into a creative component of contemporary furnishings, capable of skilfully combining technology with aesthetic styling.
For Antrax the radiator thus becomes a genuine object of design, a distinguishing feature of the interior architecture which not only fulfils its primary function of diffusing heat, but also enhances its surroundings, conveying feelings of well-being and reflecting the style, the tastes and the personality of those who choose it. Carefully and attentively selecting a radiator thereby becomes as important as choosing furniture and furnishings.
In less than five years the company's success was confirmed by a number of products that managed to distinguished themselves on the market and received prestigious awards. Tubone, for instance, won the 1st prize of the design award ‘Bañeo 2007’, the Unidustria recognition prize Oderzo and was nominated for the Compasso d'oro. Saturn and Moon by Peter Rankin were awarded for the 'Best Design 2006'. Teso and Zero-Otto received the Red Dot Design Award. Vu, together with Moon, Tubone and other radiators from Antrax IT, was exhibited at the ‘Neue Sammlung’ of the pinacotheca Munich and later, in 2009, included in the exhibition ‘Totally Rad: Karim Rashid does radiators’ at the MAD MAD Museum of Arts and Design in New York.
Well-being starts with heat
Antrax has thus launched a new generation of radiators designed to enhance the value of settings, guaranteeing maximum heating efficiency, while ensuring a better quality of life, and also energy saving, always placing a major focus on sustainability issues: all the production phases of its designer radiators are in fact managed through technologies with a very low environmental impact that involve the use of 100% recyclable materials.
Antrax radiators manufacturer was also the first brand to apply the concept of 'custom-made’ furniture onto radiators. T collection, resulting from the partnership with Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez is, in fact, the first bespoke designer radiator, made of extruded aluminium with a special T-shaped cross section, which can be customised to the nearest centimetre to adapt to the various needs of every setting, just like a tailor-made outfit.
Antrax has deployed the customisation concept across its entire product range: the possibility of customising the radiator dimensions and colour variants - there are more than 200 colours available in the Antrax catalogue - is combined with the brand’s ability to meet the specific requirements of the radiator’s intended surroundings, whether this is a bathroom, a wellness area, a living room, a kitchen or a bedroom. These particular strengths have allowed the brand to distinguish itself on the contemporary heating scene.
Expressing the most authentic top quality Made in Italy in its sector, Antrax radiators manufacturer is today recognised at international level, not only for its product range, but also for its ability to create atmospheres, suggestions and inspirations, stories in which heat plays the starring role and enters different settings with ever different shapes and finishes, stories in which the radiator highlights its characteristics and astounds for both its design and its performance.
The world of Antrax includes designer radiators produced in partnership with international architects and designers as well as radiators which have been awarded major accolades all over the world owing to their shape and the technology utilised. Some of the most significant partnerships are: Andrea Crosetta, Dante O Benini and Luca Gonzo, Francesco Lucchese, Massimo Iosa Ghini, Victor Vasilev, Peter Rankin, Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez, and even Daniel Libeskind, Marc Sadler and Piero Lissoni.
