Eskimo’s Column radiators come in six heights and twelve lengths. Not to mention four stock sizes. So what else could you possibly want? Well, you may want the option of wall mounted Column radiators or floor mounted Column radiators depending on your interior styling or pipe work. 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 feet rather than legs, in order to continue the slender sides whether a tall vertical version or long, horizontal alternative. Echoing the form of the radiator completely, all the way down.
The intention of the design was to avoid ugly fixings or difficulty in application and installation. Yet ensuring that they assured great stability. So these tremendous trotters were created from a single aluminium component for cost and material efficiency.
Our Product Design Engineers habitually design with form & function working in harmony at all times. Never depriving Eskimo’s interior products of those fundamental necessities. The design aesthetic of the feet was inspired by London’s Battersea Power Station. Which is obvious once you view the feet in their entirety.
Eskimo adore The Power Station’s art deco architecture and it was great to take the opportunity to apply this incredible visual to our product design. And because our Column radiators are so clean lined, simplistic and have an ability to blend perfectly in to any interior decor, we wanted to add just a little something special to the design of the feet, without being tacky losing sight of the overall form. Importantly, the functionality required a sturdy base, so we avoided a shape too delicate, both visually and practically. What we absolutely love about Column’s feet is that we’ve used the mistake proofing Japanese method of Pok-A-Yoke. What this means is that, when it comes to installation, there is only one way round each foot will go. It won’t slot to the bottom of your radiator unless it’s right.
