A mobile hearth, a travelling totem, a beacon in the town, a tool of conviviality.
Through time and seasons, fire has always symbolised conviviality: whether it be around a fireplace, a barbecue or a beach campfire, fire is symbol of social harmony.

A travelling chimney for urban spaces, in order to provide comfort through exchange and sharing. Its modularity makes it possible to adapt to all kinds of urban spaces: a town hall or public square, a street corner… It is intended to be used by all types of organizations wishing to invest urban space: private persons, associations, municipalities, NGOs…
