SKEMA | ANTONIOLUPI | 2010
Skema was most likely created from a doubt, that of understanding which is the correct dimension to obtain not only a good design but also to achieve commercial success. This indefinable unknown became the leitmotif of the design: a modular fireplace, a system of combinable functional elements that can be developed from a minimum dimension, the mouth of the fireplace, infinitely, so as to satisfy all the needs, and the available spaces, of the users.
The functions in Skema are fragmented and made free, independent: brazier, wood box and open compartments can be combined as desired with interchangeable and customizable solutions, creating a made-to-measure fireplace with right, left or central orientation, with the wood box and open compartments on both sides.
Built with precise proportions, the modules can also be assembled above the firebox, and below for a vertical layout that is especially suitable for small spaces.
In addition to the aesthetics, Skema features contents dedicated to the respect for the environment. The fireplace can be installed with the “Convection” system, with heat pumps for carrying the heat to other rooms, or “Radiant” coated with ceramic material with heat accumulation and slow release up to eight hours after the fire has been turned off.
The combustion chamber, made entirely of steel, is equipped with a ceramic glass door which can be removed for cleaning. The glass, in addition to serving as a spark guard, enables a lower consumption of wood/pellet whilst ensuring the flame stays alive. A design conceived as a programme of units which can be developed horizontally or vertically with an array of finishes. Made entirely of steel, the exterior finish is available in cor-ten or in black lacquer.
