Pinch is led by husband and wife partnership, Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon. Although Pinch make exceptional works, there is a personal and modest ambition behind the brand; to make furniture and lighting to live with. Russell and Oona’s design process is all about beauty found in simplicity and the indulgence of well-crafted detail. They describe their work as ‘authentic’ and ‘thoughtful’.
Pinch is a story of longevity: the furniture it produces is intended to stand the test of time and similarly the studio can be considered amongst the most established and relevant in Britain.
Pinch work with a constantly evolving stable of skilled craftsmen and women in the UK and Europe to produce their designs.
