It started with a simple bonfire in the heart of the Australian continent, under the red Ayers Rock. Two hikers, Jarosław Dąbrowski, a qualified engineer from Europe and Alfred Weilandt, a businessman from Australia were sitting by the fire, long into the night, listening to Aboriginal tales. The atmosphere created by the flames inspired the two to find an easy way to have the same fire in contemporary interiors. The idea of creating strong bonds between the ancient beliefs in the energy of fire and the rising demands of the modern world leads them to the process of creation.
Their intention was to overcome the existing difficulties in the form of soot, ash and the need for a chimney, all which are associated with fire in an interior space. The aim was to create environmentally-friendly and user-friendly products. This sparked the beginning of Planika. Poland turned out to be an ideal location for creating first-of-a-kind fire technologies. The place to conduct an advanced research thanks to experienced engineers with high quality expertise. Thereby, Planika’s founders decided to settle in Poland and built a high-tech machine park equipped with the most modern devices and production facilities.
After months spent on designing and detailed testing, Jarosław and Alfred came up with a modern fireplace combining the beauty of form and the comfort of use thanks to bio ethanol fuel. This is how the idea of Planika Fires was born.
