BABELE by Mario Ferrarini
glass, steel, stainless steel
Babele is composed by two volumes one on top of the other. The project is a perfect minimalistic parallelepiped made of steel over which four transparent glass sheets are positioned. The glass sheets, forming a perimeter, contain an amazing dance of fire created by the burner. Babele is an ethanol fireplace for indoors or outdoors. Babele contributes to create an atmosphere of great impact in different contexts such as bathroom, living room, terraces, garden and also temporary installations.
The glass sheets located in the upper part of the body appear as they were floating on the steel structure. In this way the glass contains the flames enhancing their tones and force but does not cage them. The steel body has a functional compartment where it is possible to store accessories and tools.
