Winner of the 2011 Good Design Award, Australian International Design Awards, the 2011 DesignEx Best New Product Award, and the 2011 IIDA/HD Award for Excellence, the Stix fireplace from EcoSmart Fire is undoubtedly cool.
Designed by Barcelona-based Japanese designer Hiroshi Tsunoda, the Stix fireplace looks good both indoors and out where it resembles a traditional camp fire.
“Consisting of varying-sized tubular stainless steel ‘sticks’ that are secured around an efficient 3 litre burner, the EcoSmart Fire Stix is powered by clean-burning, environmentally friendly bioethanol.”
Stylish, as well as practical (it can heat a 215 square foot space and last for 7-8 hours), Stix is sure to be a hit no matter where you use it. And now that it’s offered in a Gun Metal finish as well as Black, it’s easy to incorporate it in various settings.
Running from October 15th to the 23rd and sponsored by the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, National Design Week is its “largest education initiative, [which] aims to draw national attention to the ways in which design enriches everyday life.”
As the 2011 winner of the 2011 National Design Award for Corporate and Institutional Achievement, Knoll knows a thing or two about good design.
Whether its an office chair you sit in everyday or a lounge chair that’s equal parts “art and industry”, Knoll products for both home and office are created by some of the best designers on the planet. This is something that Knoll has always strived for since its inception in 1938 by Hans Knoll. He founded the company “based on the conviction that good design enriches and improves our lives.”
So what do you think? Where do you see design improving your daily life?

And while it’s been great and fun, I can’t help but get excited for Fall! The air smells different. There are some great holidays right around the corner. Fall clothing brings rich textures and colors to outfits everywhere. And there’s always the opportunity to cuddle up with your loved one under a cozy blanket, preferably by a warm fireplace.
Fireplaces are great in that they can serve as a fully functional heating source, a beautiful design element in your space or both! Regardless of how they’re used, fireplaces (in all their shapes, sizes and styles) bring a touch of character and romance to your home.
Check out how Vastu’s designers have incorporated fireplaces, originally existing or not, into their designs! (Pictures Below) Read more
