Android by Antrax IT – Design Daniel Libeskind
The commitment of Antrax IT to guarantee complete respect for natural resources and the ecosystem involves the entire chain of supply and manufacture, from production processes with low environmental impact to products that offer high levels of energy saving, created with 100% recyclable materials like aluminium and carbon. The unfinished bodies, prior to coating, are treated with nanotechnology to eliminate harmful residues from manufacturing. The finished radiators are wrapped in packing made with recycled cardboard, ready for delivery. The Antrax IT headquarters at Resana (TV) is self-sufficient in terms of energy, thanks to a photovoltaic system that produces 240,000 kwh/year.
This focus on ecology is clearly visible in the Griffe category, where outstanding designers like Dante Benini, Francesco Lucchese, Massimo Iosa Ghini, Matteo Thun & Antonio Rodriguez, Victor Vasilev, Daniel Libeskind, Piero Lissoni, Marc Sadler and Peter Rankin in over 20 years of history, have designed radiators that have won many awards and honors, contributing the construct the brand’s identity.
Among the company’s bestsellers, the Serie T by Matteo Thun & Antonio Rodriguez has been inspired by the metal extrusions used in construction. In 100% recyclable aluminium, Serie T is not just a heating device, but can also become a shelf or a bookcase. The original idea has evolved in TT, with the initial module repeated or juxtaposed, or the T Tower, a freestanding radiator.

Observation of plate radiators has led to the creation of Flaps, where Victor Vasilev adds flaps for the storage of towels. Oriental atmospheres for Byobu, a single- or double-panel heater designed by Marc Sadler, which takes its cue from Japanese decorative screens. Waffle, on the other hand, is the radiator by Piero Lissoni that draws on two main references: the kinetic art of Enrico Castellani and the classic cast-iron radiator. Its surface features a three-dimensional geometric texture, and is available in as many as eleven embossed powder-coated finishes.
Customization has always been a basic tenet of the philosophy of Antrax IT, to make every radiator flexible and personalized. The embossed finishes, as in the case of Waffle, give the surfaces of the metal sections material allure. The colors of the radiators are subdivided into four categories (matte, glossy, pastel and special), joined by the proposals in white and two other finishes, chrome and gold, available only on certain models. Not just a choice of 200 colors, but also multiplicity of configurations and sizes. Serie T, for example, can be sized to the centimeter in a range from 101 to 250, and all the models in the various collections can be installed horizontally or vertically.
