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 [1] ethanol burner, the piece was designed by Japanese Ryosuke Fukusada [2] and Portuguese Rui Pereira [3]. Concerned that a modern, high-tech world can promote anti-social behavior, Fukusada and Pereira wanted to create an object for warmth [4], 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 [5]!
