January 3, 2005 FireOrb Designer Doug Garafalo has created one of the most interesting and flexible heating appliance designs possible with the beautiful FireOrb. “I like that it’s a fire that people can actually gather around”, he says. “This kind of fire has echoes in the history of human culture. It creates a social space – it lets the fire be central again.”
The FireOrb is a suspended fireplace with a 360 degree rotation field. It is fabricated by spinning steel into a pure, CAD governed form and most importantly, it frees the hearth to float in the room exactly where the architect wants it. FireOrb can be at the heart of any space.
