Whereas traditional fireplaces provide warmth and light but also emit smoke and require built-in chimneys, Vanixa's 'Diapason of Love' is a fiery interior design element that not only needs no chimney, but actively uses its "electric lava" to clean the air in its vicinity.

The electronically controlled system is filled with Himalayan salt crystals, which use ions to help with breathing and iron oxide, which "protects against electromagnetic emissions generated by... various domestic electronic devices," according to Vanixa.

Since the electric lava does not actually burn when the unit is on -- rather, the light comes from LEDs and the pink tint of the Himalayan salt crystals -- the Diapason of Love is a great option for eco-conscious consumers who want the warmth of a fireplace without the carbon dioxide emissions of burning wood.

Vanixa's faux fireplace is a clever option, whether for health, environmentalism or style.
