Robert Welch, appointed Royal Designer to Industry, was one of Britain's leading industrial designers of the 20th Century. After training at the Royal College of Art in London, he specialised in stainless steel production design, moving to Chipping Campden and establishing a company in his own name in 1955.
Robert Welch, who passed away in 2000, believed that everyone should be able to use beautifully designed pieces in everyday life. From the start, Robert designed highly functional and affordable products which possessed a timeless elegant beauty. The same design principles are applied to today’s product ranges, embracing Robert’s design legacy and bringing a sense of continuity and history to the modern company.
In the early 1990s, Robert’s daughter Alice and son Rupert were invited to join his small team and help drive the company onwards. Over 20 years later, the pair still manage Robert Welch Designs, working with their team to produce a growing collection of award-winning products.
Robert Welch Designs is now an internationally renowned brand with an extensive range of products including award-winning Signature kitchen knives and over 30 cutlery designs. The company’s products can be found around the world in department stores, on the tables of top restaurants, in the rooms of 5 star hotels, in famous museums and in the Robert Welch Studio Shops in Chipping Campden and Bath.
Robert Welch’s passion to create beautiful, functional, timeless products remains rooted in the company’s design DNA, ensuring his memory lives on and that every new product continues to be ‘Designed the Robert Welch way’.
