Coral Electric Radiator

Made entirely of aluminum, Coral radiators were designed with a Form Finding approach that, using parametric modeling, allows the search for new geometric expressions. The goal was to define radiating elements with an extremely extended perimeter, to generate a high thermal output and propose a distinctive aesthetic. Coral electric radiators can be controlled with the dedicated management app that allows to set times and days of ignition, heating speed and temperature. Coral, an example of how the evolution of man through technology is resolved in the forms of nature.

Paolo D'Arrigo

I am a designer who explores the matter, appropriates it and gives it back to the world in the form of objects and furnishings. I was born in Rome in 1967. Design soon came into my life as an instinct and turned out in the most direct way, making me want to shape beloved and accurate objects. The practice of restoration and studies in sociology led me, later, to see in the profession of designer a faber of the relations between man, things and the world. I live design as an alchemy of nature and hi-tech. I practice form not as an aesthetic invention, but as the result of a process that is measured with the constraints of the material and pushes them further. I design with any material, wood and glass, metal and ceramic, contaminating them with technology. Each material is a map to follow, letting oneself be guided by its signs, following its implicit directions and revealing those that are possible and yet to be written. In this path, the know-how of the companies with which I work become a means and a boundary to explore and expand as much as possible. I pursue a beauty that communicates the unexpected. I do not plan to respond to a coded need. I start from common elements to reinvent gestures. Of every object I take care of the whole design, including communication.

Caos S.r.l.

Caos is an established reality of Italian design with twenty-five years of history and in constant growth. Design, technology and tailoring have always been the tools with which we bring home the excellence of Made in Italy. At the base of our collections of bathroom accessories and radiators are the desire to innovate, a refined aesthetic and the elegant and strong character of shapes that meet noble materials rarely used in our sector. 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.
