Swivelling wood burner: Envirosolve

With winter in full swing, wood, pellet, and gas fires come into their own.

If you’re looking for something a bit different, how about a wood fire that swivels so you can enjoy its warmth from anywhere in a room. Envirosolve has exactly that in the form of the Bionic Wood Fire (pictured), by Rais. Designed and manufactured in Denmark, the stunning Scandi-style fires are fully automatic mechanical, and do not require electricity, a fan, or a damper.

There’s no flue shield either, because the flue only becomes warm when the fire is in operation. Heat energy, usually lost via a chimney, travels down into the double combustion chamber to be reused. This results in a highly heat-efficient, low emission energy output.

“Each fire is custom-ordered upon purchase, with delivery expected approximately four months later,” says owner of Envirosolve, Dr Rene Haeberli.

“The standard size can be fixed or swivel, and in black or nickel, while studio size is black, with choices for the glass as well.”

Other features include:

  • Meets all New Zealand clean air standards including those for Ultra Low Emission Burners
  • Meets the requirements for low energy and passive house construction
  • External air capability for min-energy or passive house
  • Door locks automatically when released
  • Steady output of natural radiated heat
  • Easy to maintain with very little ash produced
  • Conveniently placed, easy to empty ash pan
  • Option of roof or wall flue
  • Optional 360-degree swivel base
