Contemporary design has embraced minimalism with clean, unadorned interiors defining the thought process of the 21st century designer with a ‘less is more’ attitude. The classic fireplace with its bulky looks and lack of design flexibility didn’t quite fit the vision for modern designers. Contemporary gas fireplaces with their sleek and slimline looks, large glass viewing areas, convenient, easy operation, and a wide range of options to match any interior, are meeting the design goals of modern homes.

A standout development in the evolution of fireplaces is the ‘clean face’ design that allows non-combustible wall sheeting or other non-combustibles such as tiles to be finished right up to the edge of the glass frame. With no grills or vents in direct view, the glass frame containing log and fire blends seamlessly into its surroundings. The design still allows convection heat to exit the fireplace, so heating ability is not affected.

The clean face design complements the popular linear gas fireplaces, featuring a wide landscape viewing area and smooth lines to provide a unique centrepiece to any room without impacting the original design and décor.

Lopi Fireplaces offers a range of linear and traditional direct vent gas fireplaces to the Australian market. A large viewing area reveals the beauty of fire, adding to the aesthetics of the room without the distraction of grills or vents.

Lopi’s linear fireplaces are available in sizes from 950mm wide for smaller rooms or walls, through to a massive 1550mm width that is guaranteed to make a statement.

Additionally, Lopi has introduced two traditional style gas fireplaces with a clean face style. The 564 GS2 is ideal for smaller rooms such as bedrooms and dens and for those not needing a large amount of heat, but still wanting to enjoy a beautiful fire year-round. The 864 GS2 is perfect for bigger rooms, with a massive 864 square inches of viewing area, making the fireplace the centrepiece of any living area.

The entire range of Lopi gas fireplaces features GreenSmart 2 technology, which includes comfort control, accent lighting, invisible safety screens and smart thermostat remote controls as standard.
