International industrial designer and design consultant Marc Philipp Veenendaal is renowned for his technical design brilliance. During his career, he has been involved with over 600 design projects ranging from furniture, lighting and homewares to consumer electronics and recreational equipment. In 2006, EcoSmart Fire approached Marc with regards to a possible collaboration, given his extensive experience and love of stainless steel, a material that is central to EcoSmart Fireplaces but is difficult to use given the way it expands & retracts with heat.
Marc has since commercialised many of the unique EcoSmart Fire Designer Fireplaces including the Vision, Retro and Fusion. "I've been honoured to work for such an enthusiastic and energetic Australian company that embraces the technical as well as the aesthetic aspects of high class, modern and ecologically friendly heating solutions".
Bioethanol is completely composed of biological products. The combustion of bio ethanol results in a clean emission: Heat, Steam and Carbon Dioxide.
Carbon dioxide is absorbed by plants. It is then processed via photosynthesis to help the plant grow. This infinite cycle of creation and combustion of energy makes bio ethanol a carbon neutral fuel source. Burning bio ethanol creates a beautiful lively dancing orange flame that is simply mesmerising. And because they don't need a flue or chimney you can now enjoy an open fire more easily than ever before - even in a high rise building. Ethanol is de-natured with various substances for re-sale purposes and it is then called Denatured Ethanol, Methylated Spirits, Denatured Alcohol, and many other names depending on where you live.
