St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 29, 2009
John Beck Paper & Steel recently unveiled their latest take on a design driven, portable, clean and eco-friendly indoor / outdoor "fire cube". Hand made entirely from steel each "cube" contains 4 cans of clean burning alcohol based gel fuel with flames that reach 6-8" tall and produce 3,000 BTU's each.
Ease of use, convenience and a designer aesthetic were the criteria used when creating the piece. "I wanted the user to be able easily and quickly have the warmth and glow of a natural fire without all the usual work and necessary parts to create a real wood burning fire" said John Beck, founder of John Beck Paper & Steel. "No logs or gas supply are needed, just light the environmental friendly gel fuel and you've got instant atmosphere with a modern look"
Each can of gel fuel, which is made of pure alcohol, water, salt and thickeners burns for 2-3 hours. Replacement fuel is available from John Beck Paper & Steel as well.
The clean designed steel cubes measure 18" square, are completely portable and are made entirely by hand at John Beck's workshop in St. Louis, MO. Design and ease of use are some of the trademark features of the shops work. "I like to make things as cleanly designed and easy to use as possible. Without function the products are pointless, although a pleasing aesthetic helps" explains Mr. Beck.
