There’s so many reasons to choose a suspended fireplace. It’s not just a piece of art, or a good design decision, for some it’s a chance to experience the art of a wood heater in a different light. A chance to break free from tradition and ignite a new flame in their living space.
For the past 40 years Jean-Claude Bordelet has designed and manufactured contemporary suspended metallic fireplaces in his workshop in Montpellier in France. It was in 1982 when JC Bordelet caused a sensation when he presented at a Parisian Trade Show, he showed his audacity and innovation when he designed a completely open, central fireplace suspended from the ceiling lacquered in vibrant blue. Since then, the company has cemented itself as the avant-garde masters in wood fireplace design, integrating colour and spectacular metal techniques. All JC Bordelet designer wood fireplaces are hand made by experienced and passionate craft-people, the only fireplaces using 4mm thick steel for durability and performance. Each and every suspended firepeice is begun in the sketch rooms of Bordelet and personalised by their designers, for a unique and exceptionally finished product and with only limited pieces per year being made worldwide.
Hanging wood fireplaces with glass surrounds can be used with either the glass open for decorative purposes, or closed, for functional purposes, can take large sized logs, and also have viewing areas to be enjoyed from 180 degrees to 360 degrees. For ease of use and maintenance all Bordelet suspended fireplaces come standard with grates and ash containers. The top components of the suspended fireplaces are fixed to ceilings and roof cavities with brackets, and are all custom made to each unit ensuring ease of installation. Now, thanks to Sculpt’s luxury fireplace collection making these dreams come true for Australian and New Zealand audiences, the opportunity to install one of these beautiful hanging sculptures is now possible. Whether its a retro inspired renovation, a mid-century modern, contemporary or a suspended outdoor fireplace in your entertainment area, there is a style and design to suit your desire. Making the statement piece of a suspended wood fireplace unmistakably powerful in impact.
