in a society that is increasingly individualistic and where the massive use of technology separates us, designers rui pereira and ryosuke fukusada propose an object that uses fire to bring people together. making its debut during salone del mobile, ‘faro’ the mini fireplace can be placed either indoors or outdoors through the use of an ethanol burner. produced in portugal, japan and italy using different craft techniques, materials such as red clay, hammered copper and aluminum are used to evoke reference to the traditional wood-stove oven.


materials: red clay, metal mesh, hammered copper and iron structure
