Astro, designed by Luca Nichetto for Tubes Radiatori, has won the Red Dot Design Award, in the Product Design section, in its most acknowledgment: "Best of the Best” - an important recognition confirming the product’s high-quality design and functionality.

Astro was selected by a panel of international design experts who tested over 5,500 products in their “search for good design and innovation”. They only awarded the Red Dot stamp of quality to products that stood out for these characteristics. The 2019 Product Design awards ceremony will be held on Monday 8th July in Essen, at the Aalto-Theater and the Red Dot Design Museum.

Astro, is contemporarily a heating element, an air purifier and a furnishing object.

It is a small electric heating object which effortlessly brings warmth where it is needed and then, surprisingly, purifies the air and eliminates odours. Heat and air, two primary needs for the human being, represent the essence of this object, which contains the technology required to independently perform two functions: heating and purifying. 


Astro by Luca Nichetto, in addition to the Red Dot Design Award 2019 Best of the Best, has also won the Wallpaper* Design Awards 2019, the Iconic Awards 2019: Innovative Interior as well as the German Design Award 2019 in the Household category and the iF Design Award 2019.
