We were delighted to team up with Waldo Works on the beautifully conceived Laslett, a new boutique hotel located in vibrant Notting Hill. Striking the perfect balance between comfort and cool, the 51 bedrooms house a series of locally sourced antiques, and carefully curated photographs. The clever use of statement furniture and quirky accessories gives a modern yet homely feel with plenty of character. Our Clyde side tables and Imo benches sit comfortably alongside sleek fittings and snug textiles. Downstairs in the lobby sits a relaxed space, encompassing part bar, gallery and hangout. Pinch worked with Waldo Works on a bespoke curved back Noelle sofa which nestles perfectly in a window bay.

Wild-Inspirations, Maison & Objet
“Nature takes over, expressing itself in all its states, from the wild to the sacred. Forms and materials reconnect with elements to be in line with Mother Earth.’
Each season, the Maison & Objet ‘Observatoire de la Maison’ analyses new consumer behaviours to define and explore a theme staged at the show. This year they explored the theme ‘Wild’ taking inspiration from the natural world. Confronted with a world formatted by technology, urbanization and excessive domestication, they seek to find refuge in the innocence of an untouched and preserved landscape. Nim, referencing lava, strata and stone, was showcased in the exhibition as an example of this exploration.

The Aram Gallery, Prototypes and Experiments VIII
We are taking part in an exhibition at The Aram Gallery, entitled Prototypes and Experiments VIII, running until 16.01.16. The exhibition is designed to show ideas in development and give the audience an understanding of the creative process. Rather than celebrating the end products of creativity, Prototypes & Experiments encourages reflection on the design process, and the many forms, routes and diversions it can take. Pinch have been invited to showcase our new jesmonite table, Nim, alongside a host of other cross category designers and projects. Details here
