cocoon fires | pedestal | black + steel base
Cocoon fireplaces use bioethanol, a safe and clean renewable energy source that comes in liquid form and creates a vibrant no odour clean-burning flame that is safe for the user and for the environment. A Cocoon fireplace produces as little CO2 as a candle.
Cocoon fireplaces are fuelled with bioethanol, a biofuel derived from plants including corn, wheat, barley and sugarcane.
Cocoon fireplaces have no need for flue, allowing endless installation possibilities. Architects, designers and home renovators around the world have embraced bioethanol fireplaces to achieve traditional, minimalist contemporary and luxury styles.
Along with the frontal heat, as the bioethanol burns the main body of the fireplace heats and radiates warmth throughout the room.

What type of combustion is used?
The combustible used is ethanol, also known as ethyl alcohol, drinking alcohol or grain alcohol. It is a biofuel which can be derived from plants including corn, wheat, barley and sugarcane.
How does the chimney work?
Ethanol is poured into the Strom Burner inside of the chimney.
Simply dip the igniter match into the Strom burner, remove the igniter and light with a match or lighter.
Place the lit igniter into the Strom Burner to start.
How long does this type of fire burn for?
The duration of the flame depends on the quantity, climate conditions, altitude, air current and the height of the flame. One litre can burn for about 1 1/2 hours with a full flame. The duration of the flame reduces considerably in an area with more air current.
The burner contained inside can hold enough fuel to burn for up to 4-5 hours depending on the heat setting, which can be adjusted for comfort.
Does it produce soot?
It can produce soot, if there are ceramic logs located too close to the flame or if a continuous air current moves the flame to one side of the steel combustion box. It is possible to remove the soot on the Strom steel box by using a dry cloth. Do NOT use any type of cleaning products.
How much CO2 is produced by the combustible?
The combustible produces less CO2 than two medium size candles.
Once burning the Cocoon gets hot and it cannot be touched whilst in use. If there are children in the area it is advisable to use a fire protection screen, the same as you would with any fireplace. An advantage over wood fires is there is no rise of ash or small burning pieces to spit out.
Does it smell when burning?
The bioethanol (methylated spirits) smells slightly as you pour it into the tray, but does not emit an odour whilst burning.
Can you turn it off?
The flame can be adjusted and extinguished
How much heat does it produce?
The amount of heat emitted depends on several factors:
- how high you have the flames set
- your home itself. If you have a lot of glass or you have concrete floors you will get heat loss, and it depends on the insulation of your home.
The Cocoon Fires produce approx 3.6kw, which is equivalent to a small to medium gas or electric heater.
Once burning the tray should NOT be moved as liquid contents are hot.
IMPORTANT: Due to changes in regulations to the chamber for the standing versions of Cocoon Fires, if you would like to convert an Aeris Hanging Fire to a pedestal model at a later date you will need to also purchase a new etched combustion chamber.
