XL burners an integral design tool

XL burners an integral design tool

They've been variously described as cabinet fires, sideboard fires, floating fire benches or hearths, and chiffonier or credenza-style fires. But regardless of the name or style, one thing they all have in common is the use of EcoSmart stainless steel XL burners to create an elegant, elongated fire in a tailor-made setting.

"The parallel lines of a rectangular-shaped fire are the perfect match with the clean lines of todays contemporary living. There's great synergy."

Stephane Thomas, Director MAD Design Group

EcoSmart's XL burners and even several of the BK Series square-shaped burners are increasingly being used to create a ‘stretched' flame. They're now a vital accoutrement in a designers palette of tools and are being integrated into specially-made cabinetry, media units, walls, ‘floating' timber or stone benches and pillars — to name but a few.

The linear features and absolute versatility of the XL burners ensure they can be easily integrated into a horizontal piece of architecture. And depending on the desired outcome, a diverse range of materials can be used in the construction. For example, burners have been incorporated into concrete and hard timber benches, set into marble into stacked stone walls, stainless steel — even metal barrels which have been cut in half.

"Rather than being an afterthought, EcoSmart's burners are now a principal design tool; part of the overall solution of indoor and outdoor environments. And each one is personally styled for a lasting impression," Thomas says.

A growing trend is to incorporate XL burners into sophisticated media rooms, as a core part of the media/entertainment unit. "Simply put, big screen TVs are forced into the background as the remnants of an earlier technology obsessed decade, while something more traditional and beautiful becomes today's focal point," Thomas says.

EcoSmart's XL Series of stainless steel burners comprises three different sizes — the XL900 , XL700 and XL500.
