The Step-by-Step heater, designed by Alberto Meda, wins the award 'Design Plus powered by ISH 2019' organized by the German Design Council.
From 11 to 15 March, in Frankfurt, Tubes will be present at the ISH fair not only as an exhibitor (Hall 3.0 Stand B82), but also in the exhibition dedicated to the Design Plus award winning products powered by ISH 2019.
Step-by-Step, the radiator designed by Alberto Meda, is in fact one of the products chosen by the jury from those exhibited at ISH for its ability to combine technology and design, with an eye to the values of innovation, sustainability and energy efficiency. The award ceremony will take place on the 11 March, ISH opening day, in the foyer of the 4.2 Hall where the exhibition will be set up.
The Design Plus award, organized by the German Design Council, is awarded annually by the 1983 to highlight products displayed at Messe Frankfurt. Tubes is the second consecutive winner of Design Plus: in the 2017, at the previous edition of ISH, the eclectic Origami was awarded, as Step-by-Step designed by Alberto Meda.
Step-by-Step, which is part of the Elements collection by Tubes, represents an important architectural presence that, depending on the case, knows how to be discreet or protagonist of the space, and is equipped with advanced technology, aimed at achieving the highest efficiency. with the lowest energy consumption.
The Step-by-Step concept starts with an aluminum module whose surface is made up of pleated elliptical elements, tilted to the right or to the left. Depending on their disposition and the perspective of the observer, evocative plays of light and visual effects are created that arouse completely different emotions: from a slight sense of movement to the architectural-monumental.
The modularity makes Step-by-Step suitable for the most diverse design requirements. The base module can be installed individually or positioned next to another module, creating so many configurations. Step-by-Step is therefore ideal both for large spaces in which you want to insert an important decorative presence, and for confined spaces, in which the limited space (the radiator protrudes only 7,8 cm from the wall) makes room for the interior.
Step-by-Step is available in hydraulic and electric version. Heating occurs in two ways: by radiation, that is by radiating the heat directly through the large heat exchange surface, and by natural convection, thanks to the hot air that passes through it from the bottom upwards.
