With the holidays upon us, the image of families gathering around a warm, crackling fire warms the heart. Artist Julien Bergignat delivers makes functional, efficient, and ergonomic the fireplace with Ignis. The name is derived from the Latin work for “spirit,” which captures the essence of Bergignat’s desire to align the spirit of the fire with that of us benefactors. The perforated and sliding screens of the fireplace help adjust the amount of light transmitted from the burning flames within, and encourage human interaction and control of the natural phenomenon. The understated and minimalist look of Ignis is compatible with a wide range of room décor, enabling an easy welcoming of man’s oldest discovery into the modern home.
