ICONIC BRITISH FURNITURE SINCE 1965
Rodney Kinsman graduated from the Central School of Art in London in 1965 with a goal to usher in a new era of modern British design. In 1966 Rodney founded OMK to produce the progressive designs he intended to create. The company quickly became a key figure in the High-Tech design movement and produced many of the highly successful furniture ranges retailed through Terence Conran’s Habitat stores in the 60’s and 70’s.
Rodney Kinsman's aspiration has always been to design progressive furniture employing contemporary technology and using modern materials rather than simply following tradition. Today Kinsman is a celebrated designer and his enduring designs for OMK are regarded as icons of 20th century British design. His work can be found in the permanent collections of the V&A, London's Design Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
In 2017, OMK re-issued a curated selection of iconic designs from their extensive back catalogue. This collection is fittingly titled OMK 1965. Included in this exciting new release is the OMKStak chair, Tokyo stool, Orbit Mirror and T1 Armchair.
