GOLD AT THE GERMAN DESIGN AWARDS

GOLD AT THE GERMAN DESIGN AWARDS

BUBBLE® wins the first GOLD "Excellent Product Design" award from the German Design Awards in the "Gardening and Outdoor Living" category.

The German Design Awards is an internationally renowned design competition with a reputation that reaches into professional circles and far beyond. The goal each year is to discover and award the most prestigious projects.

The prize was created in 2012 and is awarded by the German Council for Design (Rat für Formgebung) and the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy.

The award ceremony will take place during the winners' exhibition Feb. 11-27, 2022, in Frankfurt at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst.

THE QUALITY OF HANDICRAFT PRODUCTION

BUBBLE® is a designer wood-fired fire basket. With a diameter of 70 cm and two wheels underneath, it can be easily moved across a flat surface, turned with its back to the wind to protect the flames.

Thanks to the removable tray, cleaning is easy. Thanks to the quality of the steel and the anti-corrosion coating, which protects the design, it can withstand any outdoor environment.

This fire basket, all "Made In France," meets the same production criteria and quality requirements as all other products are manufactured from the THÉUS INDUSTRIES factory, a 100% FOCUS subsidiary.

YEAR-ROUND WARM EVENINGS

Designed to be placed in a garden or patio, it is a heat source that provides beautiful flames to enjoy outdoor living all year round, winter and summer. Day or night, Bubble® brings fire-lovers together and invites coziness.

CHRISTOPHE PLOYÉ, DESIGNER OF BUBBLE®

For more than 15 years, he was the close associate of Focus brand founder Dominique IMBERT, who taught him to trust his intuition.

Today, Christophe PLOYÉ, as head of design projects, works with the R&D department and management to drive the dynamics of creation and innovation within the brand.

Graduating from the Institut Européen du Design de Toulon (now Kedge Design Schools) in technical design and mechanical engineering, Christophe PLOYÉ developed very early on a keen interest in unique and unusual objects, as well as models and prototypes.

'BUBBLE® testifies to the spontaneity and essential simplicity of design. Its clear expression immediately endears it. In it we find the DNA of the FOCUS brand and the timelessness of its creations, which have been presented for more than 50 years.

It is said that curves come back into shapes.... A boon for BUBBLE®, FOCUS products do not follow trends and are timeless. Touched by curves, the organic shapes of FOCUS take us back to the design of our childhood which please us immensely.'
