The Fireplace is the highlight of Iittala's new Ambient Light collection. It will be manufactured and sold by Iittala starting in October 2008.

Fireplace combines fire-resistant glass and metal to provide a modern take on an open fire. The age-old idea of an open fire in the wilds has been tamed and brought indoors to create an environment of socialization and relaxation. The design is simple, clean and elegantly modern. The piece is very neutral until the flame is lit, only then does it come alive and take its place in the room to capture people’s attention. There is no need for a chimney. Due to its freestanding nature, the Fireplace is perfect for modern apartment living. It is meant for indoor use at normal room temperature. It operates with denatured ethanol. Its glass and metal parts can be cleaned with a general detergent.
