How It All Began
Twenty-two years ago, former school friends, Jon Powell and Ed Richardson, both with backgrounds in furniture, set upon the idea of establishing a British furniture design company that could hold its own against the celebrated European brands.
With a buoyant entrepreneurial spirit, the pair approached British designer, Simon Pengelly, and embarked upon their first collaboration – Meta – a pressed steel shelving system.
Modus launched the following year at 100% Design and Meta was shortlisted for the Blueprint Design Awards. The success of their first piece determined a new path – the creation of a collection that celebrated British design and manufacturing.
