Faro is a portable fireplace designed for bringing people together in a era saturated by technology. Made with clay, an iron frame and an EcoSmart ethanol burner, the piece was designed by Japanese Ryosuke Fukusada and Portuguese Rui Pereira. Concerned that a modern, high-tech world can promote anti-social behavior, Fukusada and Pereira wanted to create an object for warmth, relaxation and gathering. Safe for both indoor and outdoor use, Faro can also be placed outside and use as a wood burner. We have a hunch that Faro will be bringing people together when it premieres at this year’s Milan Design Week!
