Most beautiful object in the world!

1 Believe me! As usual, I am not bluffing. 

The fireplace seen in the picture here, designed by Dominique Imbert in 1968  [founder of Focus] has won a public vote to be named the most beautiful object in the world. 

The voting was done in a beauty contest reportedly as the first of its kind organized exclusively for objects.

Why not a beauty contest for objects?

It is designed to be suspended from the ceiling. It can rotate freely around in a full circle illuminating the whole room, at the same time providing warmth.

It is truly a revolutionary object in terms of the innovative ideas applied to its simple but pleasant looking form and technology.

This beautiful and marvelous piece of work is manufactured by a French contemporary fireplace maker Focus and they call it the gyrofocus.

It is now a featured item in several exhibitions of modern art and design including the world famous Guggenheim Museum in New York.
