T

he 2018 Salone Internazionale del Bagno focuses on personal wellbeing. And we, who are always on the hunt for the perfect home-spa, were captivated by this magical sphere. In other words, this new extraordinary glowing radiator, perfect all year round.

 

  • What is it? Eve by Tubes is a freestanding glowing radiator.
  • What is special about it? It’s inspired by the world of drones, in fact it resembles a futuristic object such as a spaceship. When in turned on, it lights up automatically and even if it’s not a lamp, the light comes on even when the radiator is switched off, creating the right atmosphere. Plus, an app controls the device via Bluetooth.
  • What is special about it? It’s a portable, heated sphere that lights up too, made from rigid structural polyurethane with a high mechanical resistance, available four colours: polished chrome, matt gold, matt white and glossy red. The keys and legs are grey-black, while the electric cable is in black fabric. Eve releases hot air at 360 degrees from a slot at ground level: the electric heating has two different settings (400W and 800W) as well as a two-hour booster that is adjusted with the touch button found on-top of the sphere or via Bluetooth with the Android app. The same applies to the dimmable light you can turn off at the base of the sphere and can be used when the heater is on or separately. Dimensions: 40x35h cm.
  • Who is it by? Ludovica+Roberto Palomba, possibly the most famous duo of designers and architects of the moment. Their perfect Made in Italy style focuses on pure lines, organic shapes and pure innovation, hidden by a discreet and refined aesthetic, which never goes unnoticed.
  • We have chosen it because… This sphere is a symbol of perfection, it gives us light and warmth, striking examples of personal well-being. This special radiator appears to have been especially designed to reach a balance between body and mind: because it creates warmth everywhere we go, it creates a welcoming space all year round and adds a stylish touch to our decor.
