Coral Electric Radiator by Paolo D'Arrigo

Home > Winners > #126389


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Coral

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Electric Radiator

INSPIRATION:
Inspired by the research of generative systems applications, the Coral radiators are proposed as a meeting point between design and nature within our homes. As in corals that weld sediments together and give rise to ever longer branches, a live physics simulator was used to generate the constant growth of a closed curve while maintaining its continuity. The goal was to define elements with an extremely extended perimeter, to generate a high thermal output and propose a distinctive aesthetic. Coral, an example of how the evolution of man through technology is resolved in the forms of nature.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
High-performance electric radiators, made entirely of aluminum, can be controlled with the management app which allows you to set times and days of ignition, heating speed and temperature. Coral radiators have been designed using a "Form Finding" approach, which, by exploiting parametric modeling, allows the search for new geometric expressions. Coral's innovative characters are: Use of generative parametric software, Operation management via app, Single material product, High percentage of recyclability, Wide palette of finishes.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Coral is programmable via a dedicated app, which allows you to set times and days of ignition, heating speed and temperature. The particular shape generated with AAD software, allows optimal heat distribution over the entire surface and optimizes the heat diffusion capacity in the room. The high thickness of the aluminum sheet determines a greater maintenance of the reached temperature.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in April 2020 in Rome and finished in December 2020 in Prato.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
8mm thick aluminum sheet, shaped with laser cutting, subsequent processing by CNC milling machine for the electric heating system. Use of parametric software AAD (Algorithms-Aided Design) for design generation.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Coral is offered in two formats, the 480X50X1480mm rectangular, which can be installed both vertically and horizontally, and the 800mm diameter circular one.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
A live physics simulator was used to generate the constant growth of a closed curve while maintaining its continuity. The goal was to define elements with an extremely extended perimeter, to generate a high thermal output and propose a distinctive aesthetic.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to "design" the algorithm to generate the radiator shape. Since we were focused on the goal of defining the longest perimeter, but without neglecting the aesthetics of the product, we carefully calibrated the parameters to generate the final shape, a balance between function and aesthetics.

A vision of living projected into the future leads us every day to interpret the needs of customers to whom we offer design products or classics that are always customizable. We assure attention, dynamism and certain manufacturing and delivery times. Future and tradition, design and high craftmanship meet in our factories to transform into the warmth and comfort of your homes. Our supply chain is entirely Italian. In our factory in Prato, Tuscany, we manufacture all the components of the collections and we turn to suppliers and partners active in the rest of the country. Made in Italy is a value for us and the key to adapting our products to any need, to create dedicated accessories, designed for exclusive and large-scale projects and installations, truly tailor-made. The secret of Caos’s quality is inscribed in our know-how that combines the artisan know-how with the most advanced technologies, the Italian tradition of historical manufacturing with that of machines. Attention to details, appreciable in the forms and finishes, enhances the wisdom and the dexterity of our qualified operators, able to impress on the products the signs of a tradition that comes from afar, from the centuries-old history of the Renaissance shops that reached in Tuscany its maximum expression. Our artisans work on welding brass with silver. From their hands pass noble materials that transform in a moment of high manufacturing what for other brands is simple routine and mechanical gesture, personalising each product making it perfect for the needs and taste of the customers, overcoming the constraints and limits of industrial production. In Caos, a consolidated combination of craftsmanship and technology create a perfect example of industry 4.0.
