Eskimo Design’s first product range is a collection of sleek, stainless steel radiators, pitched by designers Phil Ward and Ed Dimmock as an alternative to both ‘unsightly’ mass-produced and ‘over-designed’ bespoke versions. Working components are hidden behind a ‘floating’ flat cover that can be coated in an unlimited number of finishes and colours, while an aluminium extrusion system maximises the heat output of the surface area. Ward says, ‘Up to now, the only choice available to consumers has been a radiator that looks nice or one that works well. Our designs combine beauty with functionality.’ The range will be on show at 100% Design next month. Prices start at £369. Further designs will be launched next year.
