Real, comforting fire
Kalfire's mission is to bring people together around the fire in every home. Their idea for an emission-free fireplace had to make this a possibility for small apartments and houses without a flue as well. To this end, Spark developed innovative, patented techniques that enable holographic flames that cannot be distinguished from the real thing.
The Special Award validates the E-one’s success in that respect. Jury member Zuzanna Skalska said, "This electric fireplace with its virtual flames is the closest thing to a real, comforting fire." Mission accomplished!
Ruud Schatorjé, design engineer at Spark, was closely involved in the project and is understandably very pleased. “During the development of the E-One, I already felt that with Kalfire we were working on something that would really make a difference. To win a GIO and Special Award for originality… that's a beautiful token of recognition. Absolutely fantastic!”
