Fireplace In A Can Is About As Safe and Portable As You Can Get

It certainly takes some of the cozy-home feel out of having a fireplace, but this encapsulated hearth fire takes out a lot of risk and ads in a lot of portability in enjoying a live flame in the room. Designer Camillo Vanacore came up with this tiny little fireplace that transitions from opaque to transparent when the flame is turned up. It's handy for people who don't have a fireplace but love the idea of having one. It's highlighted at Six Different Ways, but there's mostly no information about availability. So, chalk it up to a cool idea for what could be a more eco-friendly fireplace, but will probably never exist.
