RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Most of the research carried out in the conception of Vortex, concerns the legal aspects and certification of fireplaces to be integrated in public and private places. As for the research related to design, it was carried out in order to develop a wood combustion product, in which it is possible to insert an automatic Bioethanol burner. With regard to its visual aspect, Vortex is inspired by the strength of a black hole to suck all the material within reach, resulting in its asymmetrical shape.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenges in the Vortex design process are related to the need to develop a fireplace that at the same time fulfills its main function, heating, but without ever neglecting its aesthetic and sustainable aspect, fulfilling all the legal requirements for integration in public and private spaces.
