Interior designer Kelly Hoppen, MBE, has collaborated with electrical wiring accessories manufacturer Focus SB to create a collection of ‘wall jewellery’.

The pair first met to discuss the concept in 2018, and their electrical wiring accessories will be available for the Chinese and UK hospitality and residential markets in Q1 2020.

The idea to collaborate with Hoppen came from Focus SB managing director Gary Stevens.

Stevens commented: “We are all very excited about this collaboration and from the moment I first met with Kelly it was like a breath of fresh air and she was bursting with new ideas for what is a relatively conservative and mature product sector.

“We are delighted with the designs, they are fresh and elegant and we look forward to bringing them to life with UK and China product launches in early 2020.”

Hoppen, meanwhile, added: “Interior fittings such as light switches and plug sockets are often not considered until the end of a project, but these details can add an extra touch and shouldn’t be overlooked.

“The world of electrical wiring accessories is generally very conservative, but I wanted to create something that would very much be part of the overall design, introducing jewellery-like details and alternative finishes.

“This collaboration with Focus SB introduces a new aesthetic to electrical fittings in a way we haven’t previously seen.”
