01/03/2017 - Vasco’s designer radiator ONI has received the quality label of approval from the “Design Plus' jury of professionals. The “Design Plus powered by ISH 2017' competition was initiated by the Frankfurt Trade Fair and is conducted by the German Design Council. This Council has a worldwide reputation as one of the leading centres of excellence for communication and knowledge transfer in the fields of design and brand communication. Its circle of founders currently consists of over 260 international companies. Representatives and experts from the sanitary, heating and air conditioning industry and associations as well as renowned architects, designers and specialised journalists selected ONI and 24 other product innovations from various branches out of a total of 154 submitted proposals from 19 countries.
Energy-efficient and immaculate
The jury evaluated every product in a total of 6 categories: design quality, overall concept, innovative content, material selection and technical and ecological aspects. ONI owes the award not only to its puristic look, but also to numerous technical innovations in terms of energy efficiency and sustainability. The judges were impressed by the simple elegance of the ultrathin radiator (only 8 millimetres!) that virtually floats on the wall. A further criterion: the clear immaculate surface that assures a clean, geometrical appearance. The superflat and ultraquick-heating front plate made of recycled aluminium - which hides an integrated copper heating tube that only needs to conduct a small quantity of water (only 0,6 litres!) - sets new technical standards for energy-efficiency and sustainability. Its operation is extremely efficient and saves a great deal of energy.
Absolutely ideal for use with low-temperature systems
Moreover, with only 23 kilograms of total weight in its largest version, ONI leads the pack in the radiator lightweight class. Transport and installation truly are really easy. Thanks to the patented design valve in the central connection, ONI can be activated very quickly.
Two models in a broad palette of colours
The innovation with the gently rounded-off edges and the slender heating surface isn’t just a genuine work of art in terms of design, it’s also user-friendly. Here’s one case where high functionality and extraordinary design go hand in hand. Currently, two models can be selected in about 70 colours: the O-NP model without towel cut-outs presents itself as a virtually floating design element and as an entirely flat radiator – a real eye-catcher in your living room, kitchen or (entrance) hall. Along with optical refinement, the second model O-P with one or two cut-outs is also handy for drying towels in bathroom or kitchen areas. If desired, sleek towel rails are available separately for both models in the Multi+ accessories range.
At the user´s option, this accessory transforms from the left or right into a broad handy table, thus offering additional room for placing all kinds of bathroom or kitchen items.
Since November, the ONI radiator is available at specialised dealers. Visitors to 100% Design 20-23 September 2017 will be able to see the ONI on display on the Vasco stand.
