Fukusada + Pereira’s Faro Eco-Fireplace Is Designed for Impromptu Gatherings

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 !
