Partner information

Founded by David Mellor (1930 - 2009), a key figure in British design with an international reputation as a designer, manufacturer and retailer. His son Corin Mellor, himself a well known product designer, is now Creative Director of David Mellor Design. David Mellor, born in Sheffield, originally trained as a silversmith and was particularly famous for his cutlery design. So much so he has often been referred to as 'the Cutlery King'. David Mellor cutlery is manufactured in a purpose designed modern factory in the Peak District National Park. The Round Building, designed by Sir Michael Hopkins, has been described as a 'minor masterpiece of modern architecture' and has won numerous architectural awards. The recently opened David Mellor Design Museum, housed in another Michael Hopkins building, exhibits the whole historic spectrum of David Mellor design. Because we are designers and manufacturers as well as retailers we have a special expertise in developing our own products. Our policy as a company is to build on our inheritance of traditional metalworking skills and Sheffield craftsmanship whilst making the most of evolving new technologies. David Mellor is a company in which the visual qualities are paramount. In an increasingly throw-away culture we are more than ever convinced of the importance of lasting good design.
