Updated: Jan 28, 2020
FARO is a mini fireplace, made from the collaboration of designers Rui Pereira and Ryosuke Fukusada. It has been designed with the idea that in a society that is increasingly individualistic and where the massive use of technology separates us, it is necessary to design objects that are used to bring people together. The fireplace can be placed either indoors or outdoors, through the use of an ethanol burner.
The aim of designing it was to explore a different way of using this fire source. By using material such as red clay, hammered copper and aluminium Pereira . Fukusada also wanted to evoke the memory of the traditional wood-stove. The user may also choose to use wood instead of ethanol when placing it outdoor. The pieces that compose this product were produced in Portugal, Japan and Italy, using different craft techniques, like the red clay pottery and the hammered copper.
