The Whirlpool Fireplace concept will change the way you think about traditional fireplaces. Although the design is highly futuristic, Whirlpool wanted to put the emphasis on having the fire as a focal point in traditional homes.

The jazzy looking design comprises of a multi-functional cooling table and an air treatment hood with mood lighting sensors. Whirlpool imagine the design as somewhere "where the kitchen and living room merge into one." Users of the Whirlpool fireplace will be able to make the surface hot or cold by turning rotating objects on the system, so you can keep your meals hot or cold. The light intensity changes as the surface increases temperature.
