ABOUT THE KALFIRE E-ONE
Behind the scenes, Kalfire has been working very hard on the very first innovative high-tech design fire in her product range. The Kalfire E-one is a design fire for every interior. With this unique electric fire, the possibilities are endless. It can be placed in any home, restaurant, office or any other building, in any place. There is no need for a flue, no fuel supply, no special fixed installation location and no maintenance.
In a world where we are more and more on our own, fire provides connection. Fire that is safe, accessible and durable. So that we can continue to enjoy fire and connection in the future. It is the ambition of Beijko van Melick, director of Kalfire Fireplaces, to create that connection. He noticed that people often get caught up in the hustle and bustle due to a stressful job, busy family life, maintaining social contacts, you name it. In these hectic times you need a place to rest, a moment to come to yourself and really relax. Where better to do this than in your own familiar surroundings? Now you can do the same in any environment, in any space.
