Eskimo – Environmentally Conscious Company

Eskimo has always been environmentally conscious in the way that we operate, but ever since national treasure,  David Attenborough screened his documentary on the very real dangers of plastic pollution and the devastating impact on the world and teen environmentalist, Greta Thunberg made the headlines talking to world leaders (and making an appearance as Bristol’s latest piece of iconic street art , near to our studio, on North Street) Eskimo vowed to take further action and sweep across the board,...

The Lasting Influence of ‘Form Follows Function’

This most famous of design-led quotes, 'Form Follows Function’ penned by the American architect, Louis Sullivan still resonates (especially for designers of amazing radiators) to this day. To recap, in his 1896 article “The Tall Office Building Artistically Considered”, Sullivan wrote: “Whether it be the sweeping eagle in his flight, or the open apple-blossom, the toiling work-horse, the blithe swan, the branching oak, the winding stream at its base, the drifting clouds, overall the coursing sun, form ever follows function, and this is...

Classic Eskimo – Peering over the CLIFF edge

Eskimo’s stylish Outline Cliff radiators are an exquisite natural stone radiator collection, that looks as if they have been torn straight out of our dramatic British coastline. Both strong and beautiful, the natural uniqueness of the material is a styling cue that Eskimo finds inspirational and is what has earned CLIFF the status of Classic Eskimo Product. And we are certainly not alone in being lovers of rock! Rugged landscapes often evoke a powerful resonance that people feel deeply connected to. The coastline was brilliant...

The RON: Classic Eskimo Design

When you think Eskimo, you envision sleek, innovative design and the exceptional quality for which we are known, and nowhere does this premium signature style stand out the most than with the exquisite RON range. RON is Classic Eskimo! As the first column radiator designed by Phil Ward, for Eskimo in 2004 the elliptically molded RON has established itself as one of our all-time top sellers, that will never go out of style. Its quiet confidence beautifully blurs the boundaries of both...

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...
