Central fireplace with glass enclosure
PRESENTATION & HISTORY
You can only design simplicity after studying complexity - Gaston Bachelard. Loyal to the brand’s spirit, this original design follows in the footsteps of the models that made JC Bordelet’s workshops famous. Simple, pure lines, with elegance and an understated style. Springing from an idea and a pencil stroke, the decidedly beautiful Linea 914 fireplace is a central model with an extremely elegant shape, packed with all of JC Bordelet’s expertise and technical skill.
CENTRAL FIREPLACES ARE THE ESSENCE OF OUR CREATIONS
The idea at the heart of Jean Claude Bordelet’s first creation was a metal fireplace suspended in the centre of a room with a completely open firebox. That is how it was envisaged, and sketched.
Later, to improve efficiency and performance, those models were enclosed with glass panes which preserved the 360° view of the flames.
THE SOUL OF YOUR HOME
Its central location lets you organise your life around your fireplace, which is somewhat reminiscent of a primitive shelter and taps into what remains of our ancestral herd instinct. Yet this welcoming, pleasant, comforting fireplace remains ultra modern in design.
Metal was the only choice, due to its untreated, cold aspect which beautifully contrasts with its intended usage, having undergone shaping, colouring and heating to transform it.
This simple concept of a central metal fireplace and our designer vision continue to feed our passion and drive our teams, from whose hands have sprung countless designs in the past 40 years.
