Designed by Yuji Okitsu,"FOCUS" was commercialized by the French lighting brand DCW éditions PARIS.
The original FOCUS was exhibited by Yuji Okitsu for the first time worldwide at Milano Salone Satellite 2018 and domestically at AXIS during DESIGNART TOKYO 2018. It was presented as an interior object hung from the ceiling like a mobile, combining multiple thin and light flat lenses and LED lights. By re-focusing on and re-composing the existing elements such as light, air, and scenery, FOCUS continually creates a new scenery responding to subtle ambient changes in the space. The details have been reconsidered and refined to create a new lighting work that is even more sophisticated and conceptual than the original.
Yuji Okitsu is based in Tokyo, and designs and produces architecture, as well as furniture, arts and more. All of his designed works are characterized by a focus on phenomena and environments that touch the heartstrings hidden in everyday life and affect the space. In addition to exhibiting at the Milano Salone Satellite and collaborating with overseas lighting brands to commercialize products that are distributed around the world, his projects are being developed both domestically and internationally.
