The creator of Focus Fireplace believes in following intuition rather than convention or trend. In 1967, French sculptor Dominique Imbert hand sculpted his first fireplace to warm his studio in the south of France. He went on to create the internationally acclaimed gyrofocus, the first suspended fireplace that pivots 360 degrees. Focus contemporary designs can be found in locations ranging from art galleries in Marseille to condominiums in Tokyo, and Norman Foster-designed company headquarters to some of the world’s most prestigious design museums including the Guggenheim in New York City and the museum of Modern Art in Stockholm.
Vie de feu – The life of fire
Focus modern fireplace designs are creatively designed to exhibit a life of their own. Some with strong straight lines and others with subtle fluidity. These works of art have the generosity to warm you like a heavy blanket or gently caress while creating a wonderful radiance to any environment and never asking anything in return but your attention, care and appreciation.
Design, function and form come together to create a wood burning fireplace design that is as comfortable presenting itself in the raw or amongst good friends being either man made or natural elements. We invite you to relax and take a moment to enjoy the many creative options available. Visit our fireplace gallery.
