The Brand

David Mellor Design operates on the simple principle that well designed tableware is a vital part of any interior. The company was set up by David Mellor, Royal Designer for Industry, in the 1950s. The first and now famous David Mellor shop opened in Sloane Square, London, in 1969 and soon became a focal point of Swinging Sixties Chelsea and remains one of London’s most original and individual shops. We run our own design office within the company and so the David Mellor collection is constantly evolving. Many of our products are designed by Corin Mellor, Creative Director, exclusively for the David Mellor shops and are produced by specially selected workshop producers and manufacturers. David Mellor now holds one of the most impressive collections of the finest British Crafts and sophisticated modern tableware and kitchenware, including the world famous David Mellor Cutlery, to be found on the international scene.

The Designer

Corin Mellor succeeded his father as Creative Director of David Mellor Design in 2006. He is responsible for product development within the company, expanding our unique and well-known collection of specialist tableware and kitchenware. Corin trained in product design and architecture. He designed the interior of the Design Museum and Cafe at Hathersage. Recent special commissions include spectacular metalwork for Sheffield Cathedral and a collection of sterling silver for a Middle East royal family. A large scale sculptural seat for the gardens at Chatsworth was commissioned by the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire in 2009 and a second bench has just been installed.
