PINCH DESIGNUNIT 1C CLAPHAM NORTH ARTS CENTRE 26-32 VOLTAIRE ROAD LONDON SW4 6DH
In 2004 we started PINCH with a single aim; to design and make furniture and lighting that we would want to live with. We set our sights on what we would want to surround ourselves with. We indulged ourselves in the detail, and didn’t compromise on the materials. The result is our growing collection and we are delighted to have been nominated for, and to have won, design awards along the way.
Our work celebrates simplicity of form, the purity of a good shape and our emotional connection with the materials around us. We live in a cluttered world and understand that any furniture or product has to work very hard to win its place. We believe in poetic design, making beautiful things, pieces that endure, inspire and aspire to be inherited. We refine and refine our designs until we feel we have arrived at our idea of perfection, but we seek to leave them with a lightness of touch. The manner in which the pieces are produced is as important to us as the designs themselves and we manufacture with a serious commitment to quality, and attention to detail and finish.
Our furniture and lighting work in both domestic spaces and contract environments and whilst we had a very personal vision of how our pieces might live, we delight in the fact that our clients engage with them differently to create very personal and particular spaces. We don’t seek to create a hard, dominating look; we are not driven by ego. Rather we hope that all our clients will use our pieces to create environments that invite and embrace, and contribute to a sense of harmony, interest and resonance.
Pinch is the collaboration between husband and wife team Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon and is run from our studio/showroom in Clapham, London.
‘May Contain Nuts’ is a funny, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny book. It starts out as a farce, an almost biting satire on ridiculously competitive urban upper middle class parents hot-housing their children into Prokofiev appreciation and contract bridge, children scheduled, tutored and stimulated; never left alone to do ‘whatever’, never let go.Read more...
