Heat and light, two vital and essential elements for the balance of the body and mind, which come together and are the starting point for the creation of an unprecedented heating object which is capable of conveying energy and peace on a daily basis.

Eve is defined by its functions: it is a nomadic heating and luminous sphere that follows us everywhere, bringing light, warmth and wellness. Eve can create, in an elegant way, the perfect atmosphere where and when needed: at home or in the office, standing on the floor or resting on a desk.

Furthermore, thanks to its lighting function, Eve overcomes all barriers set by seasonality so it can be used also during the evenings in the warmest months of the year.

Eve belongs to the new Plug&Play collection presented by Tubes on the occasion of the Salone del Mobile 2018. This collection marks the starting point of the unprecedented concept of personal warmth: the heating objects, free from installation constraints, go beyond the static nature of architecture and open up to the human dimension which, by definition, is in constant movement and evolution.





About the producer:

Tubes Radiatori stands for design, know-how, cutting-edge technology and excellence Made in Italy in the “heat” production segment. Pioneers of its industry, the company was set up thanks to the passion and experience of the Crosetta family, who have always stood out for their courage and their ability to innovate, expressing the art of “savoir-faire” and painstaking care for detail in every single product. Tubes has travelled a journey to grow its business through listening, research, experimentation, both technological and styling-related, which have enabled the brand to revolutionize the concept of the radiator, turning it into an item of interior design, sculptural even, capable of defining the architectural space.


About the design studio:

Ludovica+Roberto Palomba, architects, work and live in Milan. They founded Palomba Serafini Associati in 1994.

They received numerous international awards such as Compasso D’Oro, Elle Decoration International Design Award, Red Dot, Design Plus, Good Design Award, German Design Award.

Ludovica+Roberto Palomba plan architectures and design exhibitions worldwide. They work for and are art directors for some of the most established brands.


“Our creations, whether they be pieces of design or architecture, are derived from observations of change in human behavior.

It is important to see these products outside a fixed location or period – they do not reflect the latest fad but are the result of rationality and considered craftsmanship.

Our initial drafts are projections of our own needs. Our two visions are complementary and our design consensual.

The challenge of our work is merging function, innovation and longevity. We seek to project courage and serenity through the purity and originality of our work.

When a work is finished it is not complete, time will continue to shape how it is considered by others. An anticipation of this helps greatly in shaping classic objects which retain their beauty and utility.

Perhaps we are trying to pluck our creations from a collective unconsciousness and our task is to mold and deliver them. A truly successful piece of design must feel fresh but not unfamiliar when it is discovered.

As with a partner, love is evident.

And there it is, that is what characterize our creations: research, often long, difficult, exhilarating – to finally reach what is EVIDENT.”
