A History in Design
OMK was formed in 1965 by Rodney Kinsman RDI who began designing and manufacturing much of the furniture for the then embryonic Habitat chain.
In 1980 they were approached by the British Airport Authority (BAA) to design a seating system for Gatwick Airport. This triggered a move into public sector seating resulting in a further commission in 1990 to design a seating system for British Rail.
Since then OMK have further expanded their range to satisfy the evolving needs of public area seating.
In 2017 OMK launched OMK 1965, a new collection of Kinsman’s classic products combined with new designs.
