The iconic Bubble fireplace by Antrax IT warms the living area of a stylish farmhouse in Girona 28.02.2017
The charming Mediaeval village of Pals is situated in the heart of Baix Empordà county in Girona. In this enchanting setting, located just a few kilometres from the Costa Brava, stands an ancient farmhouse dating back to 1850 which has been completely refurbished.
The concept spans a surface area of approximately 800 square metres distributed over two floors, providing the perfect balance between past and present, and designed according to environmental sustainability and innovation criteria, affording a magnificent open view over a stretch of land of more than 26,000 square metres.
The space is bright and attractive, with high ceilings distinguished by exposed old wooden beams and settings that have been separated only where necessary. The desire to retain certain structural and architectural details typical of old farmhouses with an interior design capable of combining tradition with contemporary furnishings was satisfied fully here. A surprisingly elegant mixture of country-style structures and unique pieces of furniture make this farmhouse in Pals a singular place.
Visitors hosted in the large living room are bound to be drawn to Bubble, the painted carbon steel fireplace by Antrax IT, which is not simply a heating element but a genuine designer item that takes centre stage, capable of enhancing the attractive appearance of any living space.
Bubble is a fireplace with an open combustion chamber, devised to furnish and create the typical atmosphere that only direct contact with flames can offer. Owing to its unusual and original shape, it looks like a metal bubble, hence the name, which ‘hosts’ the fire. Also available in the wall version, Bubble blends in seamlessly with any setting, from country chic to modern city dwellings, playing the starring role even when the fire is out.
Antrax IT, with its designer radiators and fireplaces, offers the perfect solution to ‘warm up’ any living or wellness area even in the most sophisticated refurbishment projects.
