Purewhyte

Purewhyte is the design company of Kirsty Whyte, whose designs are out of the ordinary, but oh so functional!

Above are the Hound occasional tables, which can be fit together in some fun patterns. The tables can be stacked and used together to save space or separately. Inspired by origami folds and traditional Japanese patterns and are powdercoated milk steel and laser cut.


This small family of wall clocks is made from spun aluminium; as well as telling the time they provide a decorative wall covering. Each has its own characteristic, from dominating to small and cheeky. They kind of remind me of automotive parts.

Limpet is a range consisting of a small wall hook, large wall hook and door wedge. They are created from wood and make in various colors.

Pictured above are the Gordo lights and the Drew coatstand.

Purewhyte always tries to exploit the properties of the material they are working in, pushing it and the manufactures abilities to the limit, developing processes that have not been done before.  Purewhyte is able to provide not only a design concept, but also a sound technical foundation that ensures that item can be produced. The Gordo pendant light is a prime example of this, with numerous suppliers rejecting the concept when shown the computer renderings and sketches, until a company that was willing to take up the challenge was found. This partnership was rewarded with a strikingly beautiful design.

Gordo’s round space age shape and experimental manufacture inspired the name “Gordo”, after the first monkey into space!

The Drew Dining Table (below) is made currently made by hand from a continuous piece of steel. The beautiful pattern of the converging steel can be seen through the glass top. The Drew Coatrack, pictured above, is a take on the same concept.
