Russell and Oona


In 2004 Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon established PINCH with the aim to create furniture and lighting that we would want to live with. We set our sights on what we would want to surround ourselves with, indulged ourselves in the detail, and didn’t compromise on the materials. Our products are characterised by a quiet and elegant aesthetic, the result of tireless refinement and an intense dedication to craft and process.

We believe in poetic design and making beautiful things; pieces that endure, inspire and aspire to be inherited. We refine our designs until we feel we have arrived at our idea of perfection but we seek to leave them with a lightness of touch, which allows our collection to lend itself to both country and concrete environments. Our design process is all about beauty found in simplicity and the indulgence of well-crafted detail.

The manner in which the pieces are produced is as important to us as the designs themselves and we manufacture with a serious commitment to quality and a honed attention to detail and finish. We work with an evolving stable of skilled craftsmen and women in the UK and Europe to produce our designs, holding stock of large and small pieces, offering the opportunity to finish many of them in bespoke colours, as well as offering flexibility for our clients to order custom versions and bespoke commissions that are detailed with the same fervour for perfection.

Our furniture and lighting work in both domestic spaces and contract environments and whilst we had a very personal vision of how our pieces might live, we delight in the fact that our clients engage with them individually to create very personal and particular spaces, all united by creative visions that put quality and artistry first.

We sell products directly from our Ebury Street shop in London’s Pimlico Road district, and we ship worldwide. We also partner with a select number of leading international retailers who present our pieces to the wider world stage. We are proud to have been nominated for, and to have won, many design awards over the years and we are continually delighted to have our work recognised by the international design press, who cite us as a leading design studio representing British design talent, one which advocates manufacture that is set to last both stylistically and in terms of its construction. Put simply, we are furniture lovers who love to make well.
