The mission of Planika is to bring the primeval fire from before thousands of years to contemporary interiors. Throughout thousands of years people have sat around the fire, facing one another and reaching out their hands in order to warm them up. The primeval need for contact with fire lingers on in the soul of every man.

Looking at dancing flames brings people together and the fire is associated with warmth and safety.
Planika is an innovative technology company set up as an Australian-European joint venture with its products present in 30 countries and an international branch office in New Jersey (USA).[l]

It started with a simple bonfire in the heart of the Australian continent, under the red Ayers Rock. Two tourists, Alfred Weilandt and Jerry Dabrowski were sitting by the fire, long into the night, listening to Aboriginal tales about a mythical Epoch of Dreams. The atmosphere created by the flames inspired the two to find an easy way to have the same fire in contemporary interiors.

Their intention was to overcome the existing difficulties of soot, ash and the need for a chimney, all which are associated with fire in an interior space. Contemporary lifestyle demands products that through design have a character of their own but are safe and easy to use; this sparked the beginning of Planika by the founders Alfred Weilandt and Jerry Dabrowski.

After spending months on designing and testing, the result was a product which combines beauty of form and comfort of use for the atavistic need to commune with fire.
This is how the idea of Planika Fires was born.

A revolutionary concept for interior design has risen from a fresh approach to fire with the help of cutting-edge technology. Planika introduces this innovation with a touch of creativity. A mobile fire solution without smoke or smell that uses Fanola®, a special liquid based on ethanol, which can be arranged within different indoor as well as outdoor environments.

The unique solutions used allow Planika Fires to obtain the effect of dancing flames in their natural intense colours. Inspired by contemporary applied art and lifestyle, these features enhance the quality of life, bringing the element of fire from the past to present modern interior spaces.
