The Fireorb is a suspended hearth with a 360˚ rotation field. It’s fabricated by spinning steel according to a cad-governed form. I think the slim shape is contemporary and pure in concept but very organic at the same time. It is built to hang simply from the ceiling.
Doug Garofalo says about the Fireorb: “I was in Italy, in one of my favorite houses in the world, and there was a fireplace with the back made out of glass. Through the fireplace you can see the hills and valleys beyond. The impression you have is – fire floating in the landscape. That made me want to design some kind of floating fore for a house I was working on.”
