Russell Pinch

For a while now I have seen Russell Pinch's designs cropping up in the interiors magazines, in particular his 'Pendel' 2 seat sofa. With it's vivid floral fabric and curvaceous form it is bound to be a classic of the future. After working as Terence Conran's design assistant and Senior Product designer for the Conran group, In 2004 he set up Pinch Design with his wife Oona Bannon. They work from their studio in Clapham, London where they 'aim to create graceful and iconic furniture and lighting'. 

Well as you can see from the images below, they have certainly achieved that. Russell also designs for a number of retailers including SCP, Ercol, Conran and Jamie Oliver's JME home-ware range. 

It is also available in a fantastic curvy chair.

He has also just won a Wallpaper Design award for his Pontus Desk below, I must admit I do love it's little pigeon holes and mix of walnut, oak and white painted finishes. 

His Yves writing desk is also wonderful, made of solid Walnut with a lime green leather top and drawer, there is something very mid-century in it's design. You can see why he has been employed by the likes of Ercol and Conran. He has also won a string of other designs awards including the Grand Design awards in 2009 for this desk.

So if you fancy checking out some more of his designs take a look at his website, he is definitely one to watch in the future.
