Bisque has been manufacturing radiators for over 40 years, a sure sign of their premium quality and craftsmanship. Today with over 300 product lines, the company is always developing innovative new designs, finishes, materials and technology. Throughout their history, Bisque has worked with established designers as well as rising talent.
For three consecutive years, Bisque was voted one of the nation's CoolBrands, an annual initiative to identify some of the coolest companies in the UK. They appeared on this list alongside a number of iconic manufacturers, including Aston Martin, Sony PlayStation, Bose and Apple. Nominated for their niche style, desirability, authenticity, uniqueness and originality, they also won the BKU Award for Best Heating Brand, 3 years in a row from 2015.
To this day, Bisque's legacy continues to thrive, and the company remains driven by the belief that radiators can be iconic interior products, capable of transforming the look of a home or office. From their timelessly classic designs to their advancements in energy efficiency, it's no surprise that Bisque radiators can be found in homes and businesses across the country.
In 2007/08, Bisque went into business with Zehnder, a Swiss company known for its amazing feats of engineering. The move was made in the hope that both businesses could learn from each other and expand their respective brands overseas.
Bisque was founded in 1979 by Geoffrey Ward and John Gordon. Based in Kilburn, Bisque started life as a plumbing and bathroom installation company. Geoffrey, however, came across a towel radiator during his travels on the continent, which inspired him to develop and spearhead aesthetically-pleasing radiators in the UK. The pair, with the help of artist and designer Paul Draper, set out to revolutionise how we envision radiators. Rather than seeing them as technical items designed purely for functionality, they wanted people to appreciate their artistic appeal.
In 1980, they released their first radiator. Breaking the mould of white slab radiators, they were applauded by homeowners and interior designers for their use of colour and style. Over the course of the next three decades, they continued to produce revolutionary products, including the Hot Spring in 1997 and the Hot Hoop in 2001. Both items were designed by Paul Priestman, with the Hot Spring winning a Design Council Millennium Product Award in 1999.
Other innovations include the Archibald, which was designed by Leo Salzedo in 2017, and the etched copper Arteplano, which was listed as one of the Coolest Things in the World by GQ magazine.
In 2018, Bisque moved its showroom to Islington's Business Design Centre.
Bisque has been the leading consumer radiator manufacturer for over 40 years, and the team prides itself on working closely with interior designers and architects to provide unique and elegant solutions. Their products can be found in many iconic locations such as Shangri-La at the Shard, Southbank Place, King's Court in Covent Garden and One Hyde Park.
Whether it’s for a single house or a hotel, Bisque provides interior designers with access to an online resource library (complete with downloadable images and CAD files), bespoke finishes and sizes, and adapted fittings and brackets. Designers also benefit from scheduled manufacture times and delivery slots for large projects and a technical service team to help assist with design and installation.
From their innovative cooling solutions to their groundbreaking work in regards to energy efficiency, ventilation and indoor climate solutions, it is hardly a surprise that Bisque radiators are favoured by design professionals in the UK.
Chime towel warmer
The beautifully-designed Chime towel warmer is an all-rounder, making it the perfect addition to family bathrooms or wet rooms. Made from stainless steel for added durability and a mirror-like finish, there is plenty of room for hanging towels thanks to the wide rungs. The rails on the Chime towel warmer can be installed to the left or right, making it a great option if you have a his-and-hers bathroom. Available with dual fuel for summer use, there is an electric-only version too. As well as stainless steel, the Chime is available in a modern volcanic finish.
