Simplicity and refinement from the London design studio
London-based Pinch Design makes simple, timeless furniture that easily finds its place in the home. But that doesn’t mean it’s boring! Quite the contrary. With Pinch, it’s all in the details.
The company was established in 2004 by husband and wife Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon with the goal of designing furniture that the creators themselves would want in their homes. Since, they have amassed a collection of functional furniture that doesn’t skimp on quality. At last month’s Clerkenwell Design Week, the brand debuted a series of new designs, including a side table, two new chairs and a shelving unit.The Float Table draws its inspiration from the floats used by fisherman. Each table is hand turned and individually stained with a variety of colors that range from sunny to sober.
The Avery dining chair and armchair are examples of what Float does best. With an uncomplicated form, the material does all of the talking. Rather than use industrially produced materials, Pinch selected English oak with plenty of little knots and swirls that give character to the design.
Made from white oiled oak shelves with light ash rails, the Lombard Shelving unit plays with shadow. It also comes with three stained wood bookends that add a splash of color to the design.
