Specifying modern fires and stoves - a multitude of design options
In specifying fires and fireplaces, the aspirations of architects and designers have often been limited by what type of property they are working on. From early Victorian times, homes were built with a standard-sized brick chimney that only offered limited options in terms of fireplace design and construction.
For many years, the only variation to the conventional fireplace was to create an ‘inglenook’ chimney. This was achieved by hollowing out the existing opening and creating a larger aperture in which to install a freestanding stove or fire basket, as opposed to a built-in fire.
The advent of new forms of combustion and fire or stove fabrication has opened up a much larger range of possibilities for the architect or designer. DRU has been involved in many of these technical innovations and is therefore at the forefront of modern fireplace design.
DRU fires and fireplaces have been designed with the architect or interior designer in mind. The philosophy of DRU and its associated brands, Dik Geurts, Spartherm and Ebios-Fire is to appeal to the most imaginative designers and enable them to break through the boundaries of what is possible from today’s fire or stoves.
