The Modern Fan Company is the original and premier source for contemporary ceiling fan design, producing the most complete, exclusively modern collection of ceiling fans available. Our products celebrate the modern idiom through mechanical simplification, geometric forms and contemporary finishes, and are intended to meet the needs of the professional specifier and the design-minded homeowner alike.
In 2004 we started PINCH with a single aim; to design and make furniture and lighting that we would want to live with. We set our sights on what we would want to surround ourselves with. We indulged ourselves in the detail, and didn’t compromise on the materials. The result is our growing collection and we are delighted to have been nominated for, and to have won, design awards along the way.
Our work celebrates simplicity of form, the purity of a good shape and our emotional connection with the materials around us. We live in a cluttered world and understand that any furniture or product has to work very hard to win its place. We believe in poetic design, making beautiful things, pieces that endure, inspire and aspire to be inherited. We refine and refine our designs until we feel we have arrived at our idea of perfection, but we seek to leave them with a lightness of touch. The manner in which the pieces are produced is as important to us as the designs themselves and we manufacture with a serious commitment to quality, and attention to detail and finish.
Our furniture and lighting work in both domestic spaces and contract environments and whilst we had a very personal vision of how our pieces might live, we delight in the fact that our clients engage with them differently to create very personal and particular spaces. We don’t seek to create a hard, dominating look; we are not driven by ego. Rather we hope that all our clients will use our pieces to create environments that invite and embrace, and contribute to a sense of harmony, interest and resonance.
Pinch is the collaboration between husband and wife team Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon and is run from our studio/showroom in Clapham, London.
Alpine Modern is a design and lifestyle brand based in Boulder, Colorado. Our story begins in 2013, when we opened the Alpine Modern Shop in downtown Boulder. From there, we dreamed big and created a beautiful quarterly print magazine about architecture, design and elevated living in the mountains around the world. Alpine Modern Issue 01 launched in November of 2014. We opened our first Alpine Modern Café in Boulder in August 2015 with the desire to create a physical space for the community to gather for a new elevated experience. Today, you can also shop thoughtfully curated products from known modern design brands as well as small maker labels at our Alpine Modern online shop at https://www.alpinemodern.com.
Building on the love we received from readers of our printed magazine, we launched Alpine Modern Editorial (alpinemodern.com/editorial) this spring, where we continue to publish "slow content" about incredible cabins and splendid mountain homes, interviews with architects and designers, portraits of makers in the mountains, and musings on walks in the woods and alpine cooking ingredients.
We are sharing with you a selection of Alpine Modern stories and Curations here at Dwell.com.

“Gardens never end and buildings never begin” is how Alden B. Dow F.A.I.A (1904-1983) described his own individual organic design philosophy. His own Home and Studio located in Midland, Michigan, exemplifies how this incredible architect masterfully weaves structure and nature together for the ultimate living environment. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1989, the Home and Studio continues to engage the imagination and elicits emotional responses in all who experience this powerful statement of Mid-Twentieth Century Modern architecture. Planted into an encompassing pond, the Home and Studio is alive with reflective light, soaring roof lines, diverging angles, brilliant color and the perfect balance of enticement and tranquility. It truly is an “oasis of architecture and inspiration.” Schedule your visit for architectural tours, educational programs, Michigan history and much more.
