BIT – Designer Radiator, Designed by Brian Sironi

BIT is the first designer radiator of antoniolupi, it’s a monobloc made of 100% recycled aluminum. BIT is sustainable and tailor-made, with a high degree of possible customization. It is a quick-change product that is able to add to its primary function of heating and other unexpected functions.


It’s a sustainable product because it’s made of 100% recycled aluminum, with a saving of 95% with respect to the standard production made with primary aluminum. Aluminum can be recycled perpetually maintaining unchanged its characteristics.

BIT can be adapted to any space and it can be personalized by painting it in the same color of the wall or in a different color to create a contrast. The light protrusions in rhythmic sequence create a game of shadows giving to the monobloc certain sculptural features as if it were a contemporary low-relief, a quotation of the monochromatic surfaces typical of the minimalistic Avant-gardes in the second half of the 1900s.

BIT is not a simple monobloc, it could be defined as a matrix that virtually generates an infinite number of pieces: a single extrusion that can be cut at different heights. A tailor-made designer radiator that can be customized. The length of the element is always 45 cm – but more pieces can be placed side by side- while there are 6 possible heights: 45, 60, 90, 120, 150, and 180 cm.

Sustainability of BIT Radiator

Aluminum is mostly extracted from minerals of bauxite. It is appreciated because it is soft, light, oxidation-resistant and it can be recycled perpetually maintaining unchanged features. Recycled aluminum allows an important energy saving, each ton of aluminum spares 4 trees. Every year around 60 million tons of aluminum are produced worldwide. About 33%  is obtained from scrap metals (secondary aluminum).

Aluminum has a lower weight and allows better performance if compared with steel:

On equal size, an aluminum radiator is 17% more efficient than a steel radiator.

On equal thermal yield, the weight of a radiator made of aluminum is half the weight of one made of steel.

The flexibility in terms of reaction to different thermal demands of an aluminum radiator is double in comparison of a steel radiator.

On equal thermal yield, aluminum radiators contain a lower quantity of water compared with radiators made of steel or cast iron. This means that it needs less time to heat and less use of boiler, with a consequent reduction of energy costs.

With aluminum radiators, energy savings reach up the 20% even if the temperature is modified during the whole day.
