As I was designing my client Judith’s new condo, one of the features was going to be a custom-built urban fireplace. Not a big deal really, but by the time I had priced out the piece, figured out how heavy and what an ordeal it would be to remove (because she wants to take pieces with her when she moves), it just didn’t make sense. There had to be a better product out there somewhere. Racking my brain, I vaguely remembered something I saw at one of my favourite shops “Bergo” at the Distillery District.
The coolest line of urban fireplaces are made by a company from Poland called PLANIKA. They are designed to be used with a bio-fuel that doesn’t require any ventilation. They offer fireplaces for interior and exterior. And are easily moveable! Bingo!
Check out their website Planika Fires and locate a distributor near you.
Ask about “the Insight” firebox. This one is so new it’s not on their site yet, but you can see one at Bergo. I think it’s the one Judith is getting!
