Our list of brands will be growing over time, but we will always stay eclectic.
In 1999 Central London, Steve Jones and Russell Cameron gave up their jobs within design consultancy and furniture design to pursue a shared dream of a unique but diverse furniture and lighting brand.
From their humble beginning in an old lighting factory in Wembley, North London, they had worked with designers from across the globe who called London their home. And even today they continue to embrace that vivid diversity, striving to be ‘as British as London itself’ – that is to say very British and yet highly adaptable and with a global vision. Their quirky and rebellious approach to design driven by high-spirited London culture.
This is the story of a culture with greatly antagonistic qualities – on the one hand, classical English tradition and on the other, the tumultuous punk culture. And Innermost exists in the coming together of these heterogeneous elements, purveying taste and quality with a non-conformist attitude.
EOQ as a brand is rooted in a spirit of enquiry and industrial adventure. Deliberately positioned to make use of new frontiers of manufacturing and innovation, EOQ delivers classic design principles using a new and constantly evolving vocabulary.
Behind EOQ is Michael Young, British born and now Hong Kong based, who looks back at a career that spans over 20 years establishing himself as one of the world’s leading figures in his trade. The uniqueness of Michael’s work lies in his constant questioning of typologies and habits, combined with the pioneering passion for technology that eventually brought him to Asia.
