Open central hanging fireplace
Distinctive and stylish, Focus White!, the new range created by Dominique Imbert, stands out. Clad in pristine white, these new models radiate regardless of whether a fire is burning, bringing a unique brightness to a space.
Dominique Imbert explains how this colour change gives a model such a different and pure appearance: ‘The play of light and shadow reflecting off the white surface lends the metallic body an airy lightness, transforming it into a veritable sculpture of light … It has an undeniable Mediterranean charm.’
To launch this new range, four of our most popular suspended, pivoting models are now available in white:
