Focus reinvents an icon with Gas Gyrofocus

French manufacturer revisits its classic suspended design to create world’s first pivoting gas fire with highest environmental standards

In association with
The Focus Gas Gyrofocus: Retaining all the design elements of the original - open, suspended and pivoting - with an added technological feat: gas power.
The Focus Gas Gyrofocus: Retaining all the design elements of the original - open, suspended and pivoting - with an added technological feat: gas power.

The iconic Gyrofocus fire, created by Focus over 50 years ago as a woodburning stove, now has patented technology allowing the gas to be brought down through a sealed pipe into the suspended fireplace while pivoting 100 degrees. 

The Gas Gyrofocus is energy efficient with an output of 13kW and is odourless with zero particle emissions. The practical, stress-free and easy to maintain fire is simple to install above any type of flooring and features ceramic logs that imitate the dancing flames of a real wood fire.

The fire is operated via remote control for instant ignition, flame and heat adjustment and programming for controlled, constant and comfortable heat. Thanks to its ease of use, the sculptural design can be installed in the reception areas of large hotels, restaurants and establishments open to the public, as well as in private residential homes.

The Gas Gyrofocus cannot be sold without a preliminary technical survey of the site and its installation must be carried out by official Focus partner-resellers trained in its advanced technology. The fire is equipped with a specially designed plate to allow the gas to pass through the pipe. The installation operates on batteries and the burner is controlled with a remote control. Focus has an extensive UK network of trusted partners and resellers.
