The T1 Armchair began its legacy in 1967 when it was purchased by Sir Terence Conran for his influential contemporary design store ‘Habitat’. It quickly became one of the company's most popular models and ushered in a new era of modern furniture.

Inspired by Bauhaus principles, constructed from tubular steel and upholstered with deluxe coach hide leather the T1 is both lightweight and strong. Today it is regarded as a true British design classic and one of the best examples of post war high-tech design.

Since its inception by Rodney Kinsmanin in 1965, OMK has designed and produced some of the most iconic and celebrated British furniture. The company designed much of the ground breaking furniture sold through Terence Conran’s Habitat stores in the 1960’s and 70’s and went on to produce internationally acclaimed public seating.

In 2017 OMK celebrated its design heritage by re-issuing some of the most iconic products from its extensive back catalogue.

Rodney’s Aspiration has always been to design progressive furniture employing contemporary technology and using modern materials rather than simply following tradition.
