Those who have seen this work, or at least only through pictures, have had always astonishing exclamations. First of all the sizes of this fireplace impress: 3,2 meters width x 4,7 meters of height. Then eyes linger over the irregular shapes, sinuous, modeled as it should be soft material. In reality all is made with stainless steel round bars, hand curved using proper moulds and then mirror polished. The result is a sort of fabric, in appearance only light, which acts as screen for the flame. But there is a surprise; the right part is moving away for the wall modelling in an ergonomic shape and becoming a chaise longue.
