Lighting up your patio is an old dilemma, especially if during warmer days you tend to have a lot of people over, or just like relaxing in your garden when the sun has set. These types of lights are nice since they are somewhat magical to watch and produce heat at the same time.
Bioethanol has long been touted as a renewable energy alternative to gas and petrol since it comes from agricultural stocks. Usually, crops like sugar cane, potato, manioc and corn are used to make bioethanol. Bioethanol is a particulate-free burning fuel source that will combine with oxygen during combustion to form carbon dioxide, water and aldehydes. There are many new types of fireplaces that can use bioethanol instead of traditional types of fuel.
The Fuego patio light was designed by HolmackNordentoft for Stelton. It uses bioethanol as fuel to light up your evenings. Just like some of the other lights that use a combustible, they will also generate heat, which will be pleasant when you spend colder nights on your patio.
Fuego is made out of a cast iron base, with some glass to showcase the bioethanol fire once it's lighted. This makes it a viable and portable alternative if you're trying to find an unusual lighting solution for your backyard and patio. The fact that it heats up is also nice.
