What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

 

 

Egloo is a new eco-friendly way to heat, scent and humidify your room enclosed in a smart product with a unique design. 

Imagine being able to bring your fireplace with you wherever you go and forever change the way you experience YOUR home. Whit Egloo, we create moments that engage all of your senses: the soothing sound of a crackling fire, the long-lasting scent that fills your home, the warm and enveloping warmth, the suffused ambient light...

In terms of aesthetic, Egloo is ideal to have around because it is both functional and rather stylish even when it is off. 

Bring art into your homes and gives to each room a Unique Personal Touch!

 

 

The Egloo has five unique elements each engineered to contribute something to the overall gadget. There's a base, a steel plate, a grill, and two nested domes. The base offers a space for the positioning of the steel plate which is divided into two parts to facilitate the cleaning: one for the water and the other one which contains wax and wooden wicks that, once you light them, will warm the domes up. The two parts of the steel plate are connected by magnets.

There is a metal grill placed on the base, serving as a support for the domes. It makes a space to let the air in, necessary for the combustion of the wooden wicks.

Under the base, four felt disks allow to use Egloo on the most delicate surfaces, isolating it from the support area.

The base and the two domes are made by the best Italian artisans in a high-heat terracotta literally called “Terra da fiamma”.

 

The artisanal production will be completely MADE IN ITALY, using only the highest quality natural materials.

We linked art and design, tradition and innovation to offer you a unique article of its kind.

 

 

 Egloo is a super easy device. It only involves the positioning of wooden wicks (1), wax (2), and water (3)  in the plate on the base. You can also add Oil fragrance (4) into the water. Finally, you will need only to turn on the wicks (5) and put the grill and the two domes (6). After only fifteen minutes Egloo is ready. 

We suggest to follow the instruction booklet given in the packaging for a correct use and to avoid accidents.

Providing a room with a natural, cost-effective heating method is simple and sleek through the use of Egloo.

Egloo utilizes the natural heat given off by candles to increase the degrees in the room. It works by placing the candle under the terra-cotta domes, and after about 15 minutes or so Egloo creates a comfortable heat that is trapped inside and released gradually, raising the temperature.

The thinner dome within stores the majority of the heat and the thicker external dome allows for more even distribution throughout the area.

 

 

We also introduce the water cooling system that has multiple functions: it humidifies the environment, it scents the room only adding fragrances and it makes the device safer acting as a cooling system that keeps the temperature of the wax constant.

Furthermore, wicks are made in wood and this produces a higher flame and much more heat than the one of a normal candle. Egloo at its maximum temperature reaches temperatures up to 600° degrees, in total safety.

The combination of wax and wooden wicks create also a suffused ambient light, perfect for your special moments.

 

Egloo works ONLY with its refill bags of wax and wooden wicks. The candle have an average duration of about four hours and generate enough heat to warm up small environments. 

Our customer focused culture ensures that safety is a top priority. The production molds are already done and the first production models are fully tested. We have led many studies and lab tests to identify and remediate safety vulnerabilities in our product. At the end of the experiment we have designs and manufactures our product to be as safe and secure in every situation.

 

 

When the campaign is over, you will be able to buy recharges on our website www.eglooinfo.it 

The anticipated cost for the refills will be between 0,90 cent to 0,50. It depend on the quantity that you are going to order. 

For customer order please contact us directly.

This is our third crowdfunding campaign and we have learned a lot from our previous projects and the challenges that came with it. With that in mind, this project has improved any aspect of the first Egloo edition.

We added new functions, we handled its artistic aspect, we brought it to the maximum of its potential and we can assert that it's at its final stage!

In the previous image it's illustrated all the pieces you'll find in this new packaging: the base and the two domes, the grill, the steel plate, the oil fragrance and the refill bag containing wax and three wooden wicks with their metal base.

Egloo provides the perfect middle ground to carry you through autumn, and even into the colder months ahead like November and December. Its compact dimensions and light weight make it perfect for smaller areas like a bedroom, bathroom, living room, or kitchen. This product would also be ideal for a small patio or balcony, since it is powered by candles and gives off a subtle glow in addition to its warmth, which is perfect for a cozy night in the outdoors.

In terms of aesthetic, Egloo is ideal to have around because it is both functional and rather stylish. It comes in a number of different colors, textures, and finishes like natural, colored, and glazed. 

 

 

Egloo is even enlisting the help of the best Italian artists to give it some flair by adding their own painted designs to its dome. This adds an extra layer of customizability, allowing you to really make your Egloo uniquely tailored to your household look.

 

 

 

 Whit Egloo limited edition we decided to bring Art in your homes.

We put together the work of Italian artisans and artists asking them to create their artistic versions of Egloo, then we selected them to offer you the best. Those Egloo are all hand-painted unique pieces, limited in number: in each packaging you'll receive a certificate of authenticity containing Artist's signature.

 

 

The aim is not only to give you a “good looking” exclusive design object but it responds to a deeper need. The idea behind our work is that “ Art is therapy ” . Art can produce beneficial effects both in those who do art and in those who receive it. “The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls”.

 

 

It is scientifically proven that the only view of an artistic work is capable of improving the quality of life, both physical and mental health, reducing levels of anxiety and stress, normalizing heartbeats and pressure and activating the circuits of pleasure in our brain.

For this reason we have achieved a beautiful object that can produce beneficial effects both in the mind and in the body of those who are watching it.
