Welcome Ian Cowell to the team!


We are delighted to welcome Ian Cowell to our organisation as our Pinnacle Furniture Creative Director. 

Ian is an experienced Creative Designer and Director with over 30 years educational design experience. He is an ambassador for good design and has developed a strong understanding of how design and quality impacts educational environments.  

His passion for design and extensive experience helps to build strong relationships with clients, ensuring that their requirements are interpreted into a strong design brief that meets their needs while going above and beyond their expectations.  

Experience of leading the strategic planning and interior design as well as technical aspects of projects’ delivery. Ian puts a strong emphasis on quality and value, as well as liaison with clients and contractors. 

He approaches the design from the perspective of an educationalist not just an interior designer taking a wider, strategic approach to the brief. He is driven to design learning spaces that reflect and encourage teaching pedagogies.  

This expertise will complement our strong team of FFE designers at Pinnacle Furniture which are all more than capable technically, aesthetically and commercially to deliver educational design projects. 

Focused on our future, Ian was Sustainability Champion for Tetris UK and played a wider part in the JLL “Building For Tomorrow” campaign. He has expertise in sustainable alternatives for furniture and materials that can create learning environments that not only deliver aesthetically but also functionally. Ian currently sits on Eightspace’s sustainability sub-committee.
