Be BOLD and fall in love with neon radiators

With the continuing rise of the bright Colour trend, you can now explore the style with neon radiators for your home. The aesthetic is a direct result of humanity’s consumption of our modern augmented reality and the juxtaposition of nature and this new and electrifying technological future. A Key Colour emerging from the depths for the organic versus digital, is Living Coral, a colour that so serenely surpasses the conflicting sides that Apple has already launched a new range in this...

Colour contrast in trend to be hot for 2019

If you glance at the visuals and various articles on the hottest colour trends for 2019, the overriding theme to jump out and splash you, is colour contrast. The predicted primary colour styling cues this year will be; tempting ‘Cravings’ and chic ‘Classico’. Opposite sides of the colour spectrum, yet equally and deliciously alluring. It seems that we are all craving some colour. ‘Cravings’ - tempting the eye with blush inducing pepper reds full of heat and with allusions to ‘fetish foods’, will harness the sultry pigments of...

An interesting Birmingham Factory

Pretty sure that you already know that Birmingham has quite an impressive history when it comes to manufacturing? Referred to as the first manufacturing town in the World, if you were kicking about in 1791, Birmingham was a major player in the Industrial Revolution. We have a predilection for the city. Not only because our Lead Engineer Designer, and founder of Eskimo, Phil Ward hails from there. Since 2001, we have been manufacturing our beautiful designer radiators from there and...

Tremendous trotters for floor mounted Column radiators

Who loves London's Battersea Power Station? We do. The Art Deco architecture fills us with joy whenever we pass by its Herculean, yet glamorous, presence. It's clear that Eskimo's Product Design Engineers, were hugely inspired by the Power Station's form, as soon as you are introduced to the feet, designed for our floor mounted Column radiators. Eskimo already design beautiful, simplistic, clean lined legs for our floor mounted RON radiator range, Leggy RON. But this time, we felt that Column’s form required...

Eskimo are electric – why you should choose eskimo electric radiators?

Yes. Yes we are electric, but why choose our electric radiators and towel rails over other available options? We spent over 2 years in research and development of our Outline “dry electric” modular heating element. Coupling a high efficiency, natural convection aluminium heat exchanger to a powerful electric resistance heating element, the design has been honed to provide the maximum heat output within the space envelope available without resorting to noisy and impossible to clean fans or the very high...

Is it necessary to have a towel rail in your bathroom?

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? Bathrooms are unique environments with some very specific heat requirements. Usually damp and humid, we are often undressed in there, the bathroom must be the optimum temperature. Design and functionality should work in perfect harmony too, and one of the primary functions within a bathroom is to hang, warm and dry towels. Eskimo believe that it IS necessary to have towel rails in a bathroom. Not only because we want to sell you some, but because there...

Sublimation for the Nation

The art of sublimation is an enchanting performance that requires a potent combination of surface finish and product understanding, skill and creativity. In order to avoid 'naff' outcomes. The selected sublimation surface finishes of Eskimo's RON and Leggy RON column radiators, are a result of this beautiful art and offers you three stunning, unique options, created by one of our 'Eskimo expert' teams. In the search for the best, we found Dom Such from One LBJ, who is pretty damn amazing at what he...

Why are we called eskimo?

So why are we called eskimo? It’s a slightly convoluted tale of family, music, second chances, and the brilliance of a name. The turn of the 21st century was a great time for music. It was also a great time for radiators. Back then the founder of eskimo, Phil Ward, was involved in both, simultaneously DJ'ing, running a record label and running the family engineering business whilst the concept of making radiators that also looked good was just a twinkle in his youthful...

Column, sounds like Gollum – What’s different about eskimo’s COLUMN radiator?

Radiators. When you first think of them you probably visualise large, heavy ornate, traditional columns on sturdy feet. Then you start picturing those unsightly 80s versions but let's not go there. The Victorians, and later, the Edwardians, had a preference for decorative elegance with intricate scrolled details adorning heavy iron cast column radiators. They were quite something. Sadly, not so long ago, they were often discarded with distain and relegated to the skips and scrap yards, considered archaic in style....

You CAN stand the heat

Interior space is so precious when designing what sits within it. Eskimo design and make radiators as pieces of interior product design. So radiators no longer have to be ugly, they can blend, they can pop, be quiet or loud - but always, beautiful. However even if you have a very large scheme to play with, you may still struggle to find an aesthetically pleasing arrangement with regards to your wall space and where to hang your radiators. Often, vastly...
