The RIO model is a design radiator in polished or satin stainless steel designed by Paola Pinnavaia to furnish living spaces with the elegance and warmth of a refined and evocative heating element. RIO is distinguished by heating elements that curve to draw the impetuous movement of a stream.

The movement of the design of this radiator determines a strong energy charge. The design tames the material, it's a thermal sculpture that lets you feel true emotions. The sweet curves and harmonic undulations of the heating elements, evoking the beneficial power of water, show a strict relationship between appearance, anatomy and logic of the object.
