This five-foot-wide fireplace from Antrax, called "Drop," is made out of varnished steel cut with a laser. It hangs from the ceiling with three open sides, and its designer, architect Massimo Iosa Ghini, describes it as a "mouth receiving fire."
Looks like an aesthetically pleasing example of the avant-garde movement in Italian design. Wonder if it's available in a natural gas model. There's no indication of price or availability of the fireplace, but we're thinking if you want one of these in your house, you're going to have to Drop a few bucks.
