Scaletta, protagonist of the bathroom
Six different rooms featuring the Plug&Play collection by Tubes...
Scaletta, Square Bench, Astro, Eve, Origami and Milano Free-standing become the portable protagonists of our home: these electric heating objects, free from installation constraints, go beyond the static nature of architecture and open up to the human dimension which, by definition, is in constant movement and evolution.
A real concept of “personal warmth” that follows you everywhere, with items that are suitable for any space, easy to move from one room to another and from house to house.
Episode #1: Scaletta protagonist of the bathroom
The Scaletta heated towel rail is a nomadic, iconic, pop object which, thanks to its original design and versatile use, is capable of accommodating various design requirements.
The design of Scaletta is a far cry from traditional heated towel rails: the ladder is an immediate object, which needs no explanations to be understood because it is part of everyone's imagination. Scaletta is instinctively conceived as an "object that decorates and heats", offering in addition the utmost freedom of positioning it in any part of the room, mostly in the bathroom.
What's more, since it does not require installation, you can move it to another room in the home if necessary, and also take it with you when you move home.
With an electric power supply, Scaletta is made of aluminium in a wide range of Tubes colours, and it is available in two versions: wall-mounted and freestanding, both of which come with a pulley which winds up the electric cable.
The wall-mounted version is available in two sizes: 185 (187 cm high x 51,5 cm wide x 20 cm deep) and 140 (139 cm high x 48 cm wide x 20 cm deep); the free-standing version is available in a single size (104 cm high x 51 cm wide x 30 cm deep).
Scaletta can be accessorized with Regman: a manual temperature regulation device designed to keep constant the surface temperature set for the heated towel rail. Furthermore, the freestanding version can also be fitted with a practical shelf.
"Scaletta needs no explanation, it conveys in a simple way function, irony and iconic appeal. Moreover, it is original in both its function and in its design. These features make it attractive and pop.", this is how Elisa Giovannoni explains the reason for its success, which is evident also from the many international acknowledgements it received.
Indeed, Scaletta won the Good Design Award 2015 and the German Design Award 2016 (Bath and Wellness category) and, it was nominated "Honoree" of the Best of Year Award 2015 organized by the American magazine Interior Design and was selected for the publication in the ADI Design Index 2015. Moreover, in 2016 it has been awarded with the Honourable Mention by the jury of the 24th Compasso d’Oro ADI.
Today Scaletta becomes part of the new Plug&Play collection presented by Tubes on the occasion of the Salone del Mobile 2018. This collection marks the starting point of the unprecedented concept of personal warmth: the heating objects, free from installation constraints, go beyond the static nature of architecture and open up to the human dimension which, by definition, is in constant movement and evolution.
