Open Studio

Internationally renowned furniture designers and manufacturers OMK will be celebrating London Design Festival with a series of events including a collaboration with Central St Martins graduates.

The opening party will be on Wednesday 18th to launch a new seating system and their online store.

OMK Design Ltd

OMK Design Ltd was formed in 1964 by Rodney Kinsman RDI who began designing and manufacturing much of the furniture for the then embryonic Habitat chain.

During the 1970s our products were sold internationally and we developed licensed manufacturing facilities in Italy to service the global market.

In 1980 we were approached by Jane Priestman of the British Airport Authority (BAA) to design a seating system for the new North Terminal at Gatwick Airport. This triggered our move into public sector seating and in 1990 we were commissioned to design a seating system for British Rail. The resulting product, TRAX, was subsequently developed into a highly flexible modular system that would be used in over 180 airports, rail stations and hostpitals globally, making us the market leaders in this field.

During the last 20 years we have further expanded our range to answer nearly all of the needs of public area seating in terms of product variations and finishes. Mostly developed interactively with our airport clients. We are now an entirely UK based manufacturer maintaining a London headquarters and warehouse facility in which we service a worldwide clientelle.
