Bisque’s Iconic Radiator Designs

August 5th, 2019

As Bisque’s 40th anniversary approaches this year, we take a look back at the iconic and groundbreaking designs that we have crafted since the company’s conception way back in 1979.


The much-loved old school rad that takes pride of place in contemporary and period properties alike. This rad is a popular choice for those wanting to add a little touch of retro to their interior space. It looks great in a classic monochrome shade whilst being the perfect way to add a pop of colour in a neutral scheme. Our bespoke colour matching service is the ideal solution here as you can match your favourite Farrow & Ball shade to your beautiful new rad.


The Archibald is the winning design from the Bisque radiator competition which ran in 2007. This eye-catching hottie, designed by Leo Salzedo, is both practical and elegant. Its sleek sinuous design allows for hanging space whilst also adding a real sense of individuality to a space.

Hot Spring

Launched in 1997, the Hot Spring was a turning point in design and revolutionised the radiator as we know it. Gone are the days of specifying a white slab; instead homeowners look to design-led radiators which add to their interior theme rather than camouflaging them behind ugly furniture and underneath windows.


Often described as a piece of art, the Arteplano rad is one of our most striking rads. Each one is individually acid etched giving it a distinctive design that is completely individual to you. Our Arteplano now has four impressive new designs, our favourite is the bespoke-made Mondrian rad inspired by the Bauhaus movement.

Aluminium range

With sustainability at the forefront of everyone’s minds, Bisque has a range of recycled aluminium radiators. Aluminium designs have multiple environmental benefits; most obviously the recycled material creates a reduction in waste, additionally, it is more efficient at conducting heat and has a thermal conductivity 4-5 times that of mild steel (one of the most common radiator materials!). We recommend our striking yet traditional Tetro radiator pictured below.
