European Home, manufacturer, and importer of innovative and contemporary fireplace products have debuted the first and only suspended and pivoting gas fireplace by Focus in the U.S. and Canada. In 1967, French metal sculptor Dominique Imbert designed his first fireplace for his personal use in his studio in the medieval village of Viols-le-Fort. A year later, he sculpted the Gyrofocus. “I want my fireplace to touch the sky, even to hang from it”. This was how Focus, the original suspended fireplace, was born. Now the iconic Gyrofocus has evolved again to become a groundbreaking design in modern fireplaces. Until now suspended fireplaces could not be set up for gas but the engineers at Focus developed a way without losing any original design elements. Focus has created an innovative system for supplying the gas burner through the chimney flue allowing the legendary fireplace to be supplied with a natural gas or propane burner. The odorless, gas technology is comfortable, safe, and practical for a clean-burning fire. A battery backup system allows the fireplace to operate in the case of a power outage. Similar to the original wood-burning Gyrofocus, the Gyrofocus Gas will be able to rotate 100 degrees for optimal warmth and radiance in your space. As there are no embers or projecting sparks with the Gyrofocus Gas, so there is no need for a protective hearth plate under the fireplace. It allows for complete freedom of choice in terms of floor covering, including wood. Simply enjoy the beauty of the flames with gentle and enveloping heat controlled by a remote control. Instant ignition, adjustable flame, and heat output are available for controlled consumption, constant and comfortable heat. Ceramic logs imitate natural wood to perfection, and the dancing flames offer an authentic fireplace glow.
