Instrmnt is a Glasgow-based, multi-disciplinary design studio focused on creating industrial-led products with an emphasis on quality, simplicity and attainability above all else. Their work has been recognised and exhibited by the V&A, London Design Festival, Paris & New York Fashion Week & as part of Scotland's Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design.
Founded by Pete Sunderland and Ross Baynham in 2014, the studio launched with one simple product: Instrmnt 01, a minimalist steel watch which takes inspiration from the industrial design of the mid-20th century. The layout of Instrmnt 01 - unassembled with tools provided for the customer to build their own watch - has quickly become an iconic part of the brand, and has earned them acclaim from the likes of The New York Times, Dezeen, Wallpaper, High Snobiety, and The Guardian amongst others.
Further products and commissions have followed, including a 2-speed city bike built in collaboration with Freddie Grubb, an initial foray into furniture design via the creation of a multi-purpose day bed, and most recently, a range of spun-form aluminium clocks, manufactured in the UK with final assembly at the studio’s purpose built Glasgow workshop.
Beyond Glasgow, you will find Instrmnt products at fashion and design-conscious retailers across the world, in cities such as London, Antwerp, Tokyo and Toronto. Our network of stockists includes End Clothing, C’H’C’M’, Need Supply and Neighbour - the full list can be found here.
