Beautiful form following beautiful function
– the fabulous fireplace
We’ve come a long way from the humble home fire which cooked our food and kept us warm,
but the inherent honesty of the original form and function is now an important part of design.
As Steve Jobs said: “Design is not just what it looks like, design is how it works”.

No longer do we need to enclose the fireplace in a wall, now we leave it, with all the mechanisms, exposed.
And this allows us to enjoy a simple concrete wall, timber floors and the honest shape of a Jarrahdale firebox.
Or the simple SCHOTT Robax ® glass walls of this European beauty – no embellishments are necessary. So, after a long journey, the fireplace is returning to the simplicity and honesty of its true form: natural materials, simple elegant design, effective and beautiful heat.
