Pinch's latest designs express a "restrained interpretation of luxury"

London design studio Pinch has launched six furniture and lighting pieces, from a dining table and stacking stool to a sofa and a four-poster bed, as part of their 15th anniversary celebrations.

Released in time for this year's London Design Festival, each of the homeware products are designed to demonstrate the studio's minimal style through strong shapes and skilled craftsmanship.

The pieces are the Rodan round dining table, Roubel sofa, Christo four-poster bed, Beata Cluster light, Avery stacking stool and the Leith coffee table.

The Christo four-poster bed features a peaked, curved headboard designed to bring a "subtle but dynamic presence" to the bedroom.

Made from British wood, Pinch describes the bed as an expression of its "restrained interpretation of luxury". The bed is available in white oiled European oak and oiled black American walnut.

Also included in the latest set of releases is the Roubel sofa, which features three, defined sections topped by a cylindrical wrap-around frame to provide extra comfort and neck support.

"While Roubel has an eye-catching appearance, part reminiscent of the Chesterfield typology, it chimes classicism with an architectural glamour – exemplifying Russell Pinch's ability to create sculptural shapes detailed with a lightness of touch," said the studio.

The products have been launched in celebration of Pinch's 15th anniversary, which will see the studio release 15 new products throughout 2019.

Each piece compliments or adds to existing collections.

"It has always been important to us that we make furniture that we would want in our own home," said Pinch founders Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon.

"These new pieces perfectly demonstrate our ongoing focus on both the importance of the simplicity of shape and the materials used when crafting a new work."

The Rodan dining table – the first circular dining table by the studio – features a strong, solid base that contrasts with the lightness of its top.

The table is a larger version of the Rodan coffee table that the studio released in 2017. Both designs draw on the "restraint and detailing" of a bentwood box, which was historically used by the Shaker religious sect to store kitchen ingredients and other small items.

Pinch has applied its signature chamfer detail to the edge of the table, to ensure a subtle engagement with the natural pattern of the timber.

The Leith coffee table has a similar chamfered profile complimented by four sculpted legs.

The Avery stacking stool is an addition to the studio's Avery chair series, which already includes an armchair, dining chair and bar stool.

As with the other Avery seats, the stool – which easily stacks up when not in use – is available in solid European oak with a white oil finish or a lacquered solid black American walnut.

The seat can also be upholstered for extra comfort or used as a side table.

The Beata Cluster light is comprised of three shades suspended from a black metal support. The shades are made from sewn layers of soft materials typically used in millinery.

Each of the designs will be on display in Pinch's shop on Ebury Street in The Pimlico Road district in London during the festival.

Other items of wooden furniture to be seen at London Design Festival 2019 include the 10 personal objects designed for creative leaders of London's cultural institutions.

The pieces are made from American red oak wood and are exhibited at the V&A museum in South Kensington until 22 September when they will be re-installed in the home or institution of the person they were made for.
