Who we are
Focus remains where it began life, in the village of Viols-le-Fort in the south of France, in the stone house renovated by Dominique Imbert. This is where he created the very first Antéfocus, and today it is the company’s head office. It is also the workshop (L’Atelier Dominique Imbert) where Focus models are conceived and designed. It is from this medieval hamlet in the midst of the Mediterranean garrigue that Focus exports its fireplaces all over the planet.
FOCUS is, among other things:
The trademark of Atelier Dominique Imbert SAS
The original model Antefocus, created in 1967
The design icon Gyrofocus, created in 1968
A range now consisting of 65 fireplace models
100 fireplaces sold in 1980, over 2000 in 2016,
A sales turnover worth 10 million euros in 2016,
A global distribution network spanning 55 countries.
Atelier Dominique Imbert is above all the continuing adventure of a small workshop in the south of France gradually gaining the trust and loyalty of all its collaborators as well as the recognition of its peers and the public around the world.
For ethical reasons, all Focus models are made in France and a number of them are highly energy-efficient, while retaining the characteristic, original and contemporary design of the Focus trademark.
