As the Brand Manager for Escea and someone who has considerable input into the design of our new models, I saw attending the Milan Furniture Fair as a great opportunity to see the latest in European design trends.
Our team at Escea has carefully selected a new fuel bed to complement any rustic, minimalist or modern interior design. Our Woodland Selection captures the pure essence of nature. Composed of branches, pine cones and shale, this selection offers an authentic native presence alongside the statement beauty of the DX Series.
With no expectations and some Hobbits in mind, four Engineering students from Denmark packed up their bags and started their journey to New Zealand. As a compulsory component of their engineering degree, the students submitted their applications for their desired internships and awaited the replies. To their amazement that acceptance email came from Escea in Dunedin, New Zealand.
In a poetic contradiction, the spectacular view visible from the floor-to-ceiling windows is powerful to the soul yet delicate to the eye; a picture perfect surround which is complemented by the subtle, earthy components scattered throughout the home. To capture the countryside, Herman De Oliveira chose design features which would echo our ecosphere, from a marble slab bench top and polished wooden floors to an Escea NZ River Rock fuel bed.
Sold across the world in the U.K, Australia, North America, and now in Europe; Escea’s DX Series fireplaces are only just warming up.
Completed in April 2013, this outdoor courtyard is a testament to the striking effects of contrasts in colour, texture, and materials. Designed by Sandra Batley from Flourish Gardens, the courtyard was built to provide an expansive outdoor living area for a family of four, and has all the mod cons to keep the kids entertained during the day and keep the parents and their friends up a little too late at night.
The Escea ST900 fireplace is Escea’s smaller, easy-to-install fireplace with our most natural-looking flame display, perfect for rooms in which ambience is the focus, rather than heat. The ST900 has been a huge success in New Zealand and the USA since its original launch in 2009, and Escea is excited to announce its official launch in the Australian market this December.
It’s time to say goodbye to the fireplace that started it all. The IB Series was first released in 2005, and quickly became homeowners’, architects’ and dealers’ first choice of gas fireplace for its market-leading efficiency, sleek appearance, and high heat output.
Escea will launch its range of efficient, sleek gas fireplaces in Oslo on 2-3 December 2013, shaking up the Norwegian fireplace market with a healthy dose of Antipodean innovation.
Sleek yet cosy, minimal in structure but rich in colour and texture, this striking country home is a comfortable family residence that makes a serious statement. From the multiple courtyards to the see-through gas fireplace that links the living and dining areas, this is a home with a firm commitment to flowing, timeless beauty.
