I Ching, the stainless steel heated towel rail designed by Elisa Ossinoa and available from The Radiator Centre, has captured the attention of the 43 judges at this year’s Red Dot Design Awards. Beating thousands of entries from over 60 countries, it won an award in the Product Design section and in the most prestigious category: the Best of the Best.
The distinction “Red Dot” has become established internationally as one of the most sought-after seals of quality for good design and now the I Ching has joined this exclusive group of innovative products to receive one.
The I Ching is a radiator like no other, appearing more like a piece of art and making a bold design statement. It’s minimalist, simplistic form hides a complex technical component and it’s 24 volt low voltage with transformer kit makes it safe even when positioned in wet areas, such as above a bath or in a walk-in shower.
Nick Duggan, MD at The Radiator Centre comments, ‘The I Ching is a really innovative and flexible product so I wasn’t surprised when it won. It’s not like anything we’ve seen before in terms of its streamlined appearance, having no wires or technical components visible, despite the advanced technology it has. It can also be operated by a digital, wireless thermostat which can be programmed for a week, helping to manage energy consumption.’
Depending on the space available customers can choose to install anything between one and five of the heating panels which come in four different lengths and can be hung vertically or horizontally, to create a totally unique design.
