Designer vision


When award-winning designer Johnny Egg was commissioned to bring style and glamour to a new home in North London, he created a bespoke centrepiece cabinet for a large-scale living room. Key to the design of the piece was an integrated fire, and the Opti-V was selected for the project due to its amazing presence and functionality. Opti-V creates the warming glow of ‘flames’ and ‘burning embers’ without unwelcome heat in warmer months and without the installation challenges that would normally be associated with other fuel types.

“I’ve tried a number of fires over the years within furniture installations but it wasn’t until I saw the Dimplex Opti-V effect that I thought ‘this is the one’. It offered the size I needed to create a centrepiece in an unusually large room, but it also offered the realism that I needed too. It’s the first time I’ve found an electric fire that gives me the flexibility to build around and over it, without sacrificing on the flame effect.
