Focus Creation

Discover the universe of Focus fireplaces. Focus fireplaces take shape from a simple sketch: Feel the touches of true design genius signed by Dominique Imbert. How are they made? Who are the experts who design and produce these? For 50 years, Focus has been striking a perfect balance between creativity and demanding technical standards. Focus invites you to explore its universe, from the beginning of the idea to the administrative offices and the production workshop where mastery truly comes into play. Focus metal workers produce special hardware for each stove and fireplace, making each model unique. Handmade production gives life to design and research studies by transforming the abstract into the concrete.

Decofire has been the exclusive distributor of the Focus Creation brand in Türkiye for 17 years.

The Creator

Dominique Imbert

Before Dominique Imbert discovered her calling as a designer  He worked as a Doctor of Sociology at La Sorbonne in Paris. “Am I a designer?” cannot find an answer to the question. “I didn't go to art school, I didn't study architecture, I didn't take a single drawing class, I didn't study painting, sculpture, fine arts, or art history. I haven't done any of that." Despite his reservations and innate humility, Imbert's contribution to the world of design has been extraordinary. When he founded Focus in the 1960s, he could never have imagined that his firm would win the French National Creation Award or that his work would be exhibited in contemporary art museums. Along with the productive warmth The search for a wood stove that provided aesthetic pleasure as well resulted in a revolution that continues to make waves in fireplace design.

A design icon

gyrofocus

Gyrofocus continues to symbolize aesthetic perfection. The Guggenheim has been seen everywhere, from New York to the Stockholm Museum of Modern Art, from the wild deer observation lodge in Norway to the Cloudy Bay winery in New Zealand, to the spaces of distinguished architects in Japan and, of course, Turkey. Its effortless harmony with a variety of interior styles around the world continues to cement its place as the most iconic of all fireplaces. Over the past 45 years, GyroFocus has amassed an impressive collection of awards, medals and other distinctions, including the World's Most Beautiful Object, which received the Pulchra Design Award (Italy) in 2009. Gyrofocus is currently in its fifth decade of continuous production. Despite changes in fashion, taste and short-term trends, it remains as iconic today as it was in 1968.
