AURORA ‘feel the harmony of lights and colors’
The modern and elegant Aurora is inspired by the aurora borealis: the polar lights. The aurora borealis is a natural and colourful light display in the sky, particularly in the north and polar regions, caused by the collision of charged particles directed by the Earth’s magnetic field.
Normally observed at night, this colorful light-dance makes cold nights feel warmer. These complementary concepts of night and cold, and the opposing concepts of hot and cold, are both fused together in the Aurora, a free-standing chimney-free fireplace which is composed from a natural stone surface, colored transparent bearing legs, and a smokeless burner. The natural stone, which has been reshaped but sticks to the stone’s natural form, combines with the fire burner to form a harmonious blend of hot and cold. When you touch the Aurora’s natural surface, and enjoy the warmth of its fire, you will feel far away from the stresses of your life. This unique design concept reflects the polar aurora perfectly.
Its 5 legs symbolize the dance of the beam lights and its fluid lines will seduce you and open up the doors of your home to an amazing color harmony. Its extraordinary concept will not only improve your imagination and change your life, but also add different meanings to your living spaces.
MAGMA ‘connection between you and planet’
This fireplace is inspired by those natural pheonomena that are a source of enourmous energy: volcanoes. The Magma fireplace will be a source of energy for you, giving you back what you have lost during the day.
Magma will be the heart of your home. It has been designed with an eye to providing a connection between you and the planet, but it will also help you to refresh the connection between your soul and your body, as you watch the colours of the fireplace merge and integrate with one another: Magma’s colours go from red and melt into gray. The coloured layering that distinguish and make this fireplace special can be seen both from the top-view of the fireplace, and from the side.
You will be passionate about this sculptural object. It will not only be an astonishing decorative element in your home, but also a functional and stylish coffee table to use every day, and a smokeless ethanol based fireplace to keep you warm in the cold weather.
