Wins the Red Dot Design Awards 2022

The 2022 edition of the Red Dot Design Award, the most prestigious global competition in the field of industrial design, has successfully concluded for Tubes.
On June 20th, Renzo Crosetta and Antonia Crosetta together with the architect Nicola De Ponti, designer of MILANO/horizontal, were invited to Essen as guests at the Red Dot Gala, to collect the highest honor of this important prize: the Red Dot Best of the Best.

MILANO/horizontal was selected by a panel of 50 international design experts who tested thousands of products in their “search for good design, innovation and longevity”. They only awarded the Red Dot stamp of quality to products that stood out for these characteristics.

MILANO/horizontal, designed by Antonia Astori and Nicola de Ponti for Tubes, has won the Red Dot Design Award in the section Product Design.

MILANO, an iconic radiator from 2006 designed by Antonia Astori and Nicola De Ponti, unmistakable for its sinuous and sculptural body, has been made in an unprecedented horizontal version, for wall-mounted or floor-standing installation.
The intriguing new look of this radiator body makes it possible to explore new positionings which were unthinkable up until now.
For those designers or home-owners who don’t want to forgo the charm of a radiator under a window or in front of a glazed wall while seeking a product with a contemporary design providing superior performance levels, MILANO/horizontal is an original solution with a stately silhouette.
From a technical perspective, MILANO/horizontal is electrically powered and can be programmed weekly when connected to a wireless thermostat.
Available in two lengths, MILANO/horizontal is ideal for customising the most neglected corners of a setting, as it appears to float just a few centimetres above the floor.
