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...

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...

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...
