“The idea stems from the desire to create an object with a simple, fluid shape.Today, we need to surround ourselves with friendly elements, with a clear image yet with a dynamic behaviour”.

Alberto Meda


elettrico + plugandplay1

Light and free like a butterfly, extending and folding like a folding screen, ORIGAMI, designed by Alberto Meda, is an electric plug&play radiator that liaises with its surroundings. In fact, it offers the possibility of separating two rooms, of preserving privacy, of enhancing the atmosphere of discretion, increasing the feeling of well-being.

The sophisticated electronic system used in Origami is operated using touch controls to switch the radiator on and off and adjust the temperature to three different degrees of intensity, therefore re-modulating energy consumption and allowing users to select the most appropriate temperature for their particular needs. 

There are three versions of Origami fitting every room within the home, each one characterized by additional accessories: the free-standing version allows, fold after fold thanks to its movable modules, space to be set out like an actual folding screen; the wall-mounted version - with a single or double element – changes when needed into an elegant retractable towel rail; and, finally, the totem version is a modern reinterpretation of the magical antique Japanese art of origami, becoming  a heating and self-standing decorative accessory.

The items are coated with 90/130 micron thick thermoset polyester powder-based paint baked-on at 200° C. The metal treatment process (carried out before the painting) is accomplished inside the new closed circuit cleaning plant that became operational on the first of September 2010. The new plant does not produce sludge or waste water and is supplied with low temperature water, thus it enables a notable scrubbing of Co2 emissions in the air. This latest-generation plant is based on the principles used in nanotechnology. It does not use the zinc phosphating technology (commonly used by most manufacturers) which is based on the application of heavy metals such as nickel salts that are soon to be included in the toxic product list. The new treatment is based on organo-functional silane polymers. These polymers react to ambient temperatures with the metal hydroxides that are deposited on the degreased surface of the metal, forming stable covalent bonds with the metal surface. The treament is characterized by ease of use, very low toxicity - free from heavy metals - which makes it very eco-friendly. The treatment does not involve hazardous chemicals therefore its use is absolutely safe. Laboratory tests have proved that this new painting treatment withstands more than 400 hours in salt spray fog. The colour range includes over 200 different finishes (of which more than half are standard finishes). This means that the interiors of even the most discerning customers can be effectively customized. The major part of the powders used in the painting cycle are free from lead, chrome and hexavalent chromium and thus rated ECO FRIENDLY.

Chrome plating is achieved with a special thickness plating process that ensures very long wear over time. In fact, the chrome-plating process for every individual piece takes approx. four hours.

Every radiator is protected with polyethylene film and is then packed in a very strong, shock and moisture resistant cardboard box with double or triple layer on the points most subject to damage and wear during transport. The company has always paid special attention to environmental protection, and it ensures that the packing components it uses do not contain metal staples and can be easily separated in order to facilitate proper disposal. The packing box of every individual model of radiators includes wall fixing supports and vent valve, whereas the towel warmers include fixing screws and anchors in addition to the supports and vent valve.
