For the past decade, Element4 has been producing a wide range of stylish and contemporary gas fireplaces that have made their way around the globe. Based out of the Netherlands, it was in 2006 when Benno de Groot and Jan Kempers founded the business. From the beginning, they had intentions of becoming one of the most progressive manufacturers of gas fires in the world. They have always aimed for perfection, placing a strong focus on ease of use and excelling in a design that will enhance any interior.
The origin of Focus Fires dates back to 1967. It was cold in the south of France and Dominique Imbert was restoring a ruined farmhouse, stone by stone, in the village of Viols-le-Fort. With salvaged scraps of metal, the former humanities professor with a passion for metalwork, addressed this problem by forging his first fireplace. A smoldering smile of iron hanging from the sky: the first Focus was born. A year later, this first fireplace would give rise to a second, which was revolutionary in every sense of the word. As with its predecessor, the fireplace was suspended, but this time the hearth could pivot 360° to face any direction. Several enthusiastic friends wanted their own ‘rotating hearth’ – Gyrofocus in Latin. And thus began the history of Focus and its iconic Gyrofocus fireplace.
