Where a fireplace used to command attention in a room as a grand architectural feature, the contemporary era has treated it differently to produce more delicate examples like the Caleido Biofireplace. Here, the idea of the hearth has been reduced to a relatively lightweight wall-mounted sculpture that generates a single orange flame.
I suspect that the petite dimensions of the stove match those of a standard sheet of writing paper, as suggested by its nickname of the A4 Fireplace. A glossy epoxy-coated panel of carbon steel is oriented portrait-style and accented with an elegant curl to its lower left corner. This physical feature hides a stainless steel burner so that Alessandro Canepa's Caleido Biofireplace seems to blaze exquisitely and simply like an illusion to the eyes.
