What is Egloo
Egloo is a new eco-friendly way to heat, scent and humidify your room enclosed in a smart product with a unique design.
Egloo works thanks to the energy produced by special candles and to the property of a new innovative type of terracotta which quickly absorbs and retains heat, and gradually releases it into the surrounding environment.
The heat generated by Egloo is used to:
- effectively heat a small room
- evaporate the water and humidify the environment
- spread the perfume in the air
Handmade in Italy, the heater is available in several different colors and finishes, including Artistic limited editions.
Egloo is conceived for contrasting continuous waste of electricity used for warming domestic environments, offering as an option a candle-powered way that provides a cheaper and more ecological energy, taking advantage of features of terracotta that stores the heat and slowly and gradually releases it by radiation, even after it blows out. we strongly believe in respecting the environment for this reason we use in our product only natural materials such as wax, wood wicks and terra-cotta.
We carry out in our laboratory design, prototyping and product engineering.
We have spent three years researching to develop every single component of Egloo, using the most advanced technologies and in-depth studies in chemistry, physics and thermodynamics.The first steps were the realization of product sketches, its modeling and finally the printing of the first 3D prototype. With the second stage several physical hand-made prototypes were made for testing and improving the features. In the third steps we have tested hundreds of different materials, shapes and solutions before arriving to the final result.
After evaluating the proper changes and further refining the model we generated the mold for the definitive realization of Egloo.
How it is done
We linked art and design, tradition and innovation to offer you a unique article of its kind.
Our products are made merging the work of the best Italian craftsmen with the latest technologies in terms of production.
The artisanal production will be completely MADE IN ITALY, using only the highest quality natural materials.We personally select the best materials for our creation, all of which are finished by hand, creating a uniquely original decor style.
We also use the most modern techniques and machinery to ensure professional results like 3D-modeling and printing, laser cutting and CNC finishing.
How it is made
The Egloo has five unique elements each engineered to contribute something to the overall gadget. There’s a base, a steel plate, a grill, and two nested domes. The base allows enough room for the steel plate to fit comfortably. The plate has two parts: one for water and the other for the wax and wooden sticks. A metal grill sits atop the base. The grill supports the two handcrafted domes. There’s space between the two domes that forces hot air out and to disperse around the room. Under the base, four felt disks allow to use Egloo on the most delicate surfaces, isolating it from the support area. The base and the two domes are made by the best Italian artisans in “Terra da fiamma”, a particular type of terracotta that resists to higher temperatures.
How it work
Egloo heats, scents and humidifies a space in one powerful and elegantly crafted package. It works by placing the candle under the terra-cotta domes, and after about 15 minutes or so Egloo creates a comfortable heat that is trapped inside and released gradually, raising the temperature.
The thinner dome within stores the majority of the heat and the thicker external dome allows for more even distribution throughout the area.
Adding water to the water cooling system turns the Egloo into a humidifier. You can also add essential oils to the water for health benefits and perfume your room.
The combination of wax and wooden wicks create also a suffused ambient light and a characteristic cracking sound, perfect for your special moments.
How to use it
Egloo is a super easy device. It only involves the positioning of wooden wicks, wax, and water in the plate on the base. You can also add Oil fragrance into the water. Finally, you will need only to turn on the wicks with a lighter and put the grill and the two domes in the correct order.
After only fifteen minutes Egloo is ready.
The candle have an average duration of about four hours and generate enough heat to warm up small environments.
The package includes an Egloo, one candle refill, one oil fragrance and an illustrative brochure.
