Honourable mention for Scaletta at the Compasso d'Oro ADI Awards


The Scaletta heated towel rail, produced by the Italian brand Tubes, has won an honourable mention at the Compasso d’Oro Awards 2016. Established in 1954, this award is the oldest and the most influential on the international design scene.

Elisa Giovannoni signs this design, which is a far cry from the traditional shapes of the classic heated towel rail. It is made of aluminium and is available in two versions: wall-mounted - available in two different heights - or free-standing, both equipped with a pulley that houses the electric cord.

Thanks to its plug & play system, it does not require installation and so can be placed in any room in the home according to needs or taken along when travelling to second residences or holiday houses.

Scaletta has won other renowned international prizes: the German Design Award 2015 (Bath and Wellness category), the Good Design Award 2015 and was the Honoree at the Best of Year Award 2015 organised by the American Interior Design magazine. Furthermore, until 19th February 2017, this iconic piece will be on display at the “W. Women in Italian Design” exhibition of the Triennale of Milan.
