London-born designer James Irvine (1958-2013) graduated from the Royal College of Art in the early nineteen eighties. He then moved to Milan where he worked for Olivetti under Ettore Sottsass. After a short stay in Japan he set up his own design studio in Milan. His oeuvre is truly multifaceted. In addition to brackets and seating furniture, he for example also designed buses.
Umbrella stand Drip, a design by British designer James Irvine, has a sturdy look. This is in part due to the removable tray, as well as its curved edges. The inside of the frame is fitted with two hooks for small umbrellas.by James Irvine
The coat stand Dodici makes a powerful statement. The design of British designer James Irvine may look light, but when used the metal stand is a real heavyweight when it comes to stability. And that is surprising as the twelve hooks seem to have been folded like cardboard. The name of the design refers to the number of hooks: dodici is Italian for twelve. The coat stand is available in several colours.by James Irvine
The designs of British designer James Irvine have, without exception, a powerful look. Sometimes this arises from their specific form, other times from their simplicity. This is the case with Quattro and Sei, wall coat racks with two or three double hooks, made of black, white or metallic grey epoxy coated steel. Quattro and Sei go well with Dodici and Drip, also designs of James Irvine.by James Irvine
