THE LOGICAL ART OF FURNTIURE
Rodney Kinsman RDI
Rodney Kinsman RDI was born in London in 1943. He studied furniture design at Central School of Art now Central St Martin where he served as a governor for 12 years and is currently a visiting professor.
He founded OMK in 1965, one year after graduation and through his company designed and manufactured much of the furniture sold through Terence Conran' s Habitat stores in the 60's and 70's subsequently designing and licensing his furniture though the Italian factory Bieffeplast.
Rodney's aspiration has always been to design progressive furniture employing contemporary technology and using modern materials rather than simply following tradition.
Among his many awards and achievements, Rodney was made Fellow of the Chartered Society of Designers in 1983, made Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Art in 1988 and appointed a Royal Designer for Industry in 1990.
