Zen is a unique ellipse-shaped freestanding bio-ethanol fireplace made by Planika – the Polish manufacturer of smokeless alcohol-based fireplaces, in collaboration with Michal Kugacz of Kumi Studio. Its top finished with powder-coated steel not only keeps it safe for use at home but also makes it suitable for different interior styles. In addition, the fiberglass polyester laminate casing in white or black gloss is a cool and durable choice for modern interiors. It is a slim no-smell fireplace with a single line of fire at the top that can be used both indoors and outdoors. The duo has also commissioned the same fireplaces for Poziom 511 Design Hotel & Spa in Poland.
The Zen freestanding bio-ethanol fireplace measures 43.38 (W) x 23.03 (H) x 15.78 (D) inches and weighs 20 kgs. It is fully portable and can be placed anywhere in a house. There are built-in safety features like child safety lock, overheat sensor, automatic shutdown, and overflow sensor to ensure added fire protection.
Furthermore, there are built-in cooling fans to make sure consistency. The 2.5-liter fuel capacity, 3-5 hours burning-time and heat output of 3.0 – 4.7 kW are some of its highlighting technical specifications. There is an option to adjust levels of flames according to your personal choices.
Available in two combinations of white and black, the Zen freestanding bio-ethanol fireplace can become a luxury decorative element in any space. If you wish to purchase one, it is currently available for around US$4,558. They are offering two versions which differ in height to suit different needs.
