The Faro Fireplace is a stand-alone hearth that adds warmth to the home in more ways than one. It helps to create a gathering point for people to socialize, which will warm up the heart as much if not more than the heat of the flames does for the body. Unobtrusive in both size and style, the Faro Fireplace stands like an additional friend in the room. The designers write, "In a society that is increasingly individualistic and where the massive use of technology separates us, we propose an object that uses fire to bring people together. "

Another collaborative effort between Milan-based designer Rui Pereira and Kyoto-based designer Ryosuke Fukusada, the Faro Fireplace is perfect for both indoor or outdoor use. It is compatible with ethanol burner and regular wood.
