Glenn Rushbrooke & Samantha Robb
"we like simple, uncomplicated design."
Every time Glenn Rushbrooke & Samantha Robb of pachadesign release a new piece, I get the urge to jump on a plane to visit their shop on the North Devon Coast. I imagine something of a Big Sur landscape: harsh, brutal, salty, and stunningly beautiful at dawn and dusk. Perhaps, I'll make it to visit them on my next trip to London! Until then, here are some images of their latest table + bench they have named kaiseki.
Also, look forward to an interview with Glenn and Samantha on YHBHS in the upcoming months. I'll get to ask them about their choice of materials, their design philosophy, and other design interests, and artisans that inspire them.
