At PINCH, every prototype is treated as a living person.

Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon

“We talk about them as humans: ‘She needs to draw her waist in’ or ‘Those feet are too pigeon-toed.’ Our goal is to imbue a lightness of touch to all creations that feel effortless but also instinctively comforting,” say Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon, founders of the established British design studio. Scroll through the gallery below to find out more about the duo and their exquisite designs:

The husband-and-wife partnership has forged a reputation in global design scene by reinterpreting contemporary poise and elegance through a precise creative process combined of three elements: a strong shape and a perfect proportion, followed by a beautiful materiality and ultimately something that’s brought to life by experienced craftsmen; pictured here are the comfortable Angelo armchairs.

Founding the creative practice in 2004 at their kitchen table, Russell and Oona knew from the start that they needed to break away from a superficial way of working in order to create genuine and authentic designs that are made well, and with a respect for the customers, makers and resources. Pictured is the Rodan dining table.

To celebrate the firm’s 11th anniversary, the couple gifted themselves the Nim table, which embraces weight and mass and strikes a drastic contrast with PINCH’s often clean and light designs. Add a subtle glow to your living enivornment with Beata Cluster light as captured here.

“It’s so intriguing that you can’t be quite sure whether it’s made from natural materials or is a man-made object,” they say. “Learning how materials work in different ways is always challenging and is definitely a vital factor that pushes us out of our comfort zone.” Pictured here is the elegant Gentle table light.
