    Modern fireplace in contemporary setting

    FOCUS, which was founded more than 50 years ago and has been pushing boundaries ever since, is renowned for its emblematic fires which have been exhibited in leading museums of the world including the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

    The dramatic suspended flues with pivoting hearths are instantly recognisable by their sculptural shape. These award-winning fires are so often specified for their form as much as their energy efficiency and heat functionality. All fireplaces from FOCUS – whether lit or unlit – are iconic in their designs, which are handcrafted from highest quality steel by artisans in the South of France.

    There are more than seventy designs in the FOCUS collection and each and everyone is a masterpiece in its own right. Suitable for installation in a vast range of projects from ski lodges, spas and boutique hotels to luxury five-star establishments, FOCUS fires add a certain dash of French panache. FOCUS has installed their sculptural fires throughout the world in a large variety of hotels from Nordic cabins to Australian beach resorts; from retreats in the Baleriacs to a converted railway hotel in Holland, every region has an approved partner to ensure the highest standard of service. FOCUS is recognised by the architectural and interior design community who regularly specify the fires for their projects.

    Odourless and with zero particle emissions, the new gas models can be installed in reception areas of large hotels, restaurants and establishments open to the public. Equally the new Ecodesign Ready wood-burning fires with closed glazed hearths offer high energy output meeting the very highest standards and regulations across Europe.
