Focus has come a long way since its founder Dominique Imbert created a fireplace design like no other: a dramatic forged steel hearth with an extended flue, that has become the trademark of the company. The story starts in the foothills of the Cevennes in the medieval fortress town of Viols Le Fort, where it is still has its HQ today. The company has grown from one man beating metal to a growing workforce of nearly 100 in the South of France. Its reputation for its handcrafted fireplaces has gone global, with Focus being specified by some of the world’s leading architects on projects ranging from houses to hotels.
Distinctive and stylish, Focus White!, the new range created by Focus, stands out. Clad in pristine white, these new models radiate regardless of whether a fire is burning, bringing a unique brightness to a space.
The Curvifocus was awarded ‘Gas appliance of the year’ as well as ‘Product of the year’ at the international competition of Hearth & Home, the largest fireplace trade show in Britain (held in Harrogate). That a French company swept the two top awards in recognition of technical innovation and design in a country with such a strong gas fire tradition is a proud achievement.
Legendary French fireplace company, Focus, is exhibiting for the first time at Hearth and Home https://www.hearthandhome.co.uk , Harrogate from 11-13 June 2017. Famed the world over for its exemplary, contemporary designs, Focus will be exhibiting a range of its newest and best selling models: Gyrofocus, Curvifocus, Slimfocus (DEFRA Approved) and Edofocus 631 - there will be a working model on site for demonstration purposes.
Would you like to create a convivial space outdoors to welcome a gathering with friends on a cool summer evening or a late autumn day? Focus, the French contemporary fireplace designer, presents its collection of seven outdoor fireplaces.
Once again, Focus revolutionises the universe of fireplaces with the launch of the Curvifocus, a gas fire with a concave front that offers an exceptional view of the flames.
The concept is simple, if the execution is complex: unite the signature style of Focus fireplaces to the ease of use of remote-controlled heating appliances. This new range of innovative fires rises to this challenge, featuring ‘plug and play’ technology while staying true to the uncompromising design standards of Focus.
Just in time for the winter season, Focus once again proves its skill at playing with shapes while retaining the clean lines and elegant style unique to Dominique Imbert.
The Slimfocus, the latest addition to the Focus range, is a fireplace with exceptional efficiency that meets the strictest environmental standards without a single concession to style. With its innovative balanced-flue technology, Focus launches the first-ever central, suspended model compatible with low-energy buildings.
