Urban Flame The Urban Flame presents a green alternative

[24/11/09] 

Many of us remember the smell of wood-burning fireplaces as winter months approached. There's something homely, something hopelessly romantic about an open flame (like a Tom Hanks film), especially if it comes with a good thick throw rug.

Now you can skip the smoke, chimney and spent ashes. Urban Flame is a unique bio-ethanol-burning fireplace that wins the brownie points with both the ladies and the greenies. The heart of the fireplace consists of a 3-litre, laser-cut, stainless steel burner, in which the bio-ethanol is contained; and its adjustable slider plate enables you to modify the flame’s intensity. The columns and burner box that frame the fireplace are made of high-gloss lacquered, fire-proof MDF timber. The fireplace comes in four different models, each in two sizes (50cm or 70cm in length): the standalone burner box, the O (square-shaped), the U (U-shaped), and the W (three-part wall mount), starting from HK$6,774 and up. With over 90% efficiency, it consumes fuel at a rate of 0.5 litre/hour on medium setting. Safe, efficient, mobile and easy to use, the Urban Flame fireplace is a far better alternative in Hong Kong than burning charcoal in your living room.

Baby, light my fire.
