Focus Fireplaces

Today I would like to bring you Dominique Imbert and his "Focus" on fireplace design.
"Following his roving studies and an adventurous existence between the Sorbonne in Paris and the subways of Manhattan, one day in 1967, Dominique Imbert decided to set up a sculpture workshop at the foot of the Cevennes, north of Montpellier. The crumbling building he settled in had neither a roof nor windows that closed, so, prompted by the cold, he created a steel fireplace for his own use. On seeing it, visitors wanted one for themselves.
And so, Focus was born."
Here are some of his simply beautiful designs:
