Real Fires - The Tower
Famous Milanese architect and designer Celeste Dell'Anna has joined forces with Simona Righi from Italian design studio Intentions to create The Tower - a stunning new addition to the EcoSmart Fire Collection.
The Tower was inspired by the 'Padella Romana', a distinctive lighting feature used in the entrances of wealthy Patrician family residences to symbolise status during the Roman Empire.
The Tower is visually striking with its elevated flame atop of a solid plinth, and is ideal for both domestic and commercial applications - at the entrance of hotels and restaurants, flanking a beautiful villa, around garden and swimming pool/alfresco areas, or inside a home.
