We have been long-time admirers of British brand Pinch Design, founded by partners Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon.
Pinch Design are known for their uncompromising quality and attention to detail. Motivated to start designing and producing pieces that they felt were missing in the market, Pinch was established in 2004.
We love the balance of form and function with a little bit of quirky thrown in for good measure!
As you may expect (we are called Detail Collective after all...) we get excited by the details...and Pinch Design positively celebrates the intrinsic qualities of materials and construction. "We believe in poetic design, making beautiful things, pieces that endure, inspire and aspire to be inherited."
As a result of their approach, Pinch Design has been the recipient of multiple awards including Elle Decoration Best British Brand.
The Achilles Dining Table with it's leg design is a great illustration of Pinch Design's attention to function - they refine and refine again their designs to ensure that they are as close to perfection as possible! This table will ensure that no one gets the awkward 'leg' with it's clever recessed trestle base.
"Our furniture celebrates the simplicity of form, the purity of a good shape and our emotional connection with the materials around us."
There is truly something special about crafting beautiful and useful timber pieces, a tactile quality that has you reaching out instinctively to touch.
As you can imagine creating these pieces ('furniture sculpted by hand') is not done overnight, and many of them are only made to order. However, those of you lucky enough to be near London can get to see them up close and personal at the showroom by appointment. Pinch Design also have selected pieces available from a limited list of stockists globally - click here to see your nearest.
