Spartherm Launches Outdoor Fireplace Based on SCHOTT Design Award Winner
Spartherm bought the award-winning design at the auction on the evening of the award ceremony at the ISH trade fair last March.
Interior design student Angela Wegmann won the 2017 SCHOTT ROBAX® Design Award, which had encouraged over 80 young creatives from Germany, Austria and Switzerland to design outdoor fireplaces with ROBAX glass-ceramic fire viewing panels. Wegmann’s “Dome Fireplace” design not only won the award, it also won over ROBAX partner Spartherm, which bought the award-winning design at the auction on the evening of the award ceremony at the ISH trade fair last March.
One year later, according to SCHOTT, Fuora K embodies what the award’s creators had envisioned: a modern design that sets fire viewing panels at the fore and brings an atmospheric, safe fireplace experience outside. “This is a welcome addition to our family of Fuora gas fireplaces for outdoor events with demanding conditions looking to offer the pleasant ambience of fire,” said Andreas Schönfeld, Spartherm sales manager.
The new product was officially introduced at Hagos Börse, a cooperative of German tiled stove and air heating makers, in Stuttgart on March 22-24, 2018. Fuora K reportedly offers leading fire visibility with its larger size, maximizing ambient pleasure. The powder-coated substructure made of 2-mm-thick sheet steel brings firelight to the ideal viewing height and holds an 11-kg liquid gas cylinder tank behind the door. The adjustable flame provides up to 30 hrs of ambience. Wheels and a rolling aid ensure that the device is easy and convenient to transport.
