Award-winning design for outdoor fireplaces
Spartherm creates the Fuora K gas fireplace from the winner design of the SCHOTT ROBAX® Design Award
Vision has become reality. When fireplace maker Spartherm presented a new member of its gas fireplaces for outdoor use in late March 2018, it was also a success for the SCHOTT ROBAX® Design Award. A year earlier, it had inspired young creatives to design outdoor fireplaces with fire viewing panels. The winner of the competition – “Dome Fireplace” by architecture student Angela Wegmann – ultimately inspired Spartherm to develop Fuora K.
With its well-shaped curves, this new product shows everything that the award stands for: a modern design that highlights the fire viewing panel, an optimal view of the fire with maximum fire pleasure and a safe fireplace feeling. “This confirms that the design of outdoor fireplaces can be rethought and the outdoor trend revived with fire viewing panels. Our flat, round or angled ROBAX® glass-ceramic panels inspire a wide variety of new fireplace designs,” says Isabel Eymael, Head of Marketing for SCHOTT ROBAX®.
