Press kit Focus 2019

 From the beginning, the brand Focus has always been based in Viols-le-Fort, in the south of France, in the former home of Dominique Imbert who saw the birth of his first Antéfocus. This is where his head office resides; this is also where the Atélier Dominique Imbert imagines, designs and creates the furniture with the "Focus" signature. Thus, it is from this tiny medieval village, at the foot of the Cevennes, that Focus today exports everywhere  around the planet.
