This will be the first Focus in many years where Decca will not be physically attending after relocating to a newer showroom in Imperial Wharf.
Everywhere you turn at this physical event, there will be the promise of design discovery. The latest looks at Focus/21 are cosmopolitan in outlook, underscoring the importance of individual style and quality craftsmanship. Each is distinctive; what unites them is creative confidence. New-season collections from 120 showrooms speak of stylish palettes and abstract compositions that represent power and poise. A joyful 1970s redux is infused with vitality and hope, while imaginative dreamscapes bring a sense of wonder.
Showroom teams are renowned for their specialist knowledge, so Focus/21 will be the place to talk to them about projects and see the breadth and scope of their autumn/winter 21 ranges up close. Adding another layer, pop-up House Guests will offer more ways for visitors to encounter world-class talent.
Reflecting a commitment to connect, converse, create, a curated programme will bring more verve and energy. Workshops, talks, artisan demonstrations and discovery tours will dig deeper inside the stories behind the designs and provide opportunities to meet in person the people who shaped them. All underline the astonishing capacity of the human imagination. This wealth of experience is extraordinary and, what’s more it is a free resource for every visitor.
On the main stage, industry insiders will share their experiences at the acclaimed Conversations in Design series, while installations and specially commissioned places to eat and drink will bring plenty of visual inspiration.
