ORIGAMI plug&play radiator

Yet another recognition for ORIGAMI, the plug&play radiator designed by Alberto Meda who once again receives an award from the German Design Council, which this time confers him the DESIGN PLUS AWARD.


The award, founded in 1983 in association with Messe Frankfurt, is dedicated to the products that set themselves apart during the trade fair ISH in Frankfurt am Main for innovative design, efficiency in terms of technology, and sustainability.

Light and free like a butterfly, extending and folding like a folding screen, capable of producing heat for any room and offering the possibility of separating two rooms, of preserving privacy.

There are three versions of Origami fitting

  • In the free-standing version, fold after fold, the movable modules allow space to be set out like an actual folding screen, ready to safeguard our privacy.
  • The wall-mounted version was devised with a single or double element. In the double version, the movement of the two modules emulates a butterfly beating its wings, radiating heat and changing when needed into an elegant retractable towel rail. Origami towels can completely enveloped and hidden from view when the radiator is folded up onto the wall, optimising space.
  • Lastly the static, totem version is a modern reinterpretation of the magical antique Japanese art of the origami.

This technology allows modularity of the heat, because each module of Origami can be turned on or kept off according to the needs, with the ensuing remodulation of consumption levels, too.

Flexible, versatile, easy to position in any room, Origami combines performance with styling in a “nomadic” object that decorates the home, putting design and technology at the disposal of heat.
