I don't know your boss's policy on allowing open flames on your office desktop, but imagine having this cool new Ponton Fireplace burning away while you work. This mini hearth was created by German designer Wolf Udo Wagner as an urban interpretation of a campfire. It's completely safe to burn indoors or outdoors, because the flames are fueled by bio-alcohol, which has minimal CO2 emissions, and it's made out of fire-resistant tempered glass and stainless steel. Some people may prefer a little candle flickering away for their entertainment and some people, like me, enjoy a tiny safely-contained raging bonfire for theirs!
