Green Design - Chimo Fireplace

I love the design and practicality of this new invention for the fireplace. It is the Chimo Fireplace by Floz Design for Blomus, and is a flue-less, chimney-less, instant atmosphere provider that burns nice, green Ethanol. It mounts directly on the wall like a picture frame and effortlessly blends form and function in a simple and unique way that requires little set up and no chimney. This means that any room of your house can now easily accommodate the comfort and pleasure of a beautifully designed and functional fireplace. I have not had the opportunity to use this particular product in any of my Design projects, but I have used a fireplace designed by Eco Smart, a company out of Australia that burns Ethanol.

This rotating, stand alone model will add all the extra sizzle a bedroom or living labyrinth might require.
As seen in the New York Times and on HGTV Blomus' indoor fireplace is a breakthrough in indoor ambiance and Green Design. It installs in minutes by mounting on any wall in your home, with no need for a chimney, gas line or professional installation. Simply mount to the wall, fill the reservoir, light it up and enjoy.The secret is that the flame is generated from Ethanol which is a safe, clean burning fuel that is completely organic and made from renewable resources like corn, potatoes, wheat and other vegetables. Furthermore, Ethanol is Green since it is not a fossil-fuel and burning it does not increase the Greenhouse effect like other fuels. This product is made in Germany.

  5. Hi Jenn
    I just did some research on the cost of Ethanol. In Canada a 4 Litre bottle (which is approx 3.75 Gal) sells for $25.00. Burning on a medium flame one bottle lasts for 10 - 12 hours. So the way I figure it, that is approx. $2.50 per hour or less expensive than a latte. I am sure that Ethanol can be sourced at an less expensive price and/or the price might come down as there is more demand for it.

  8. I see you're keeping your New Year's resolution to be green--these are really great--especially the top one. I've always liked the Eco Smart ones as well.

    I AM LOOKING FOR A GAS BURNING FIREPLACE THAT A TV CAN BE PLACED ABOVE IT. SOMETHING MORE HORIZONTAL, BUT I'VE HEARD A MANTEL OF STONE IS NEEDED BETWEEN THE TV AND FIREPLACE.....

    I ALSO SAW THIS FABULOUS JETSON FIREPLACE THAT BURNED WOOD, BUT THAT IS NOT ALLOWED UP NORTH.

    I WISH I COULD FIND SOMETHING THAT IS WIDE ENOUGH, BURNS GAS, (I'VE ALREADY MOVED THE GAS LINE)..AND THAT COULD BE TILED OR A MANTEL BUILT AROUND (ABSIOUSLY NOT A HUGE MANTEL) BUT TO GIVE IT WARM WITH LOW BOOKCASES BELOW.....DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANY,,,,,,,,THANKS, ANNIE
