The black fireplace is made of 4mm-thick steel, has a diameter of 1.25m and a weight of 97kg. It rotates 360° so it can be easily directed to face different parts of the room. The length of the flue and other adaptations are produced to requirements.
Pulchra is the first ‘beauty contest’ exclusively reserved for objects. Launched in Italy in 2007 by Sandro Silvi, an internationallyrenowned architect passionate about beauty (pulchra in Latin means ‘the most beautiful’), the aim of the competition is to presentto the public, each year for the next 10 years, 100 objects carefully selected for their beauty by a committee of experts. This latest honour grants posterity to the Gyrofocus, assuring its place in history thanks to the voice of the general public, who resoundingly affirmed the aesthetic principle of its creator Dominique Imbert: beauty in simplicity.
