(LOS ANGELES, CA)–The Culture Creative is pleased to announce representation of PINKYS (formerly Pinky’s Iron Doors). PINKYS celebrates the beauty of Southern California's unique sunsets: Blush. Breathtaking. Ethereal. Expansive.
A Los Angeles-based architectural elements studio with roots dating back to 1978, PINKYS is credited with being a leader in popularizing the iron doors and steel windows design trend favored by the country’s most celebrated architects and interior design firms.
Based in LA’s industrial capital and burgeoning arts district of Vernon—the company has maintained a steadfast commitment to offering innovative and high-quality iron and steel architectural products delivering the beauty of the Southern California indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
PINKYS was born of the artist's life. Founder and patriarch Vic Der was a drummer in Isfahan, Iran—a historic city and the country's artistic hub—where he played Jazz, an experimental genre built for improvisation and passion. Following the oppressive revolution, (including a ban on artists), Vic sought to maintain the values and traditions he cherished. He fled with his wife and two sons to Los Angeles—A universal haven for artists and creative spirits. Initially crafting expressionistic ironworks in his backyard, Vic imbued each piece with the same passion and vive he poured into his drumming. Once an artist, always an artist. The design and quality inherent in every PINKYS product resonated with the work of other artists in Southern California. The freedom and openness of the city that first attracted Vic is echoed in every door and window.
Helmed by Der’s sons since 2014, Dion Der and Arin Der took over the family business and have been quietly building upon their father's legacy, slowly growing their vision into an iron doors and windows empire coveted across the country. As of this year, PINKYS debuts an industry-leading showroom in LA’s industrial district of Vernon, with the largest inventory of iron doors and steel windows in the country. Nationwide shipping expands PINKYS reach across the country, bringing the Los Angeles lifestyle to homes in every part of the contiguous United States.
PINKYS doors are marked for their expansive glass and minimal frames, intended to maximize light and view. Each door and window crafted by PINKYS is a view. A frame. A connection to the natural world outside.
PINKYS is unique in that it offers both a robust, consumer-facing e-commerce website, a dedicated showroom for their collections of windows and doors, as well as a workshop atelier where custom architectural elements are imagined to best meet the needs of the design trade.
PINKYS is a company born and raised in Los Angeles, whose very success is a testament to the American Dream and to a family history of artistry and craftsmanship. As Dion shares: “We champion the creative lifestyle of LA—the light, the air, the palpable energy of the city—to create high-grade architectural elements that break down walls and create infinite opportunities wherever you see them.”
Now, more than ever, a newfound appreciation for the home as the center of everyday life has re-energized PINKYS to seek to bring their meticulous eye to a new generation of design professionals and aesthetes alike. Under the purview of Dion Der and Arin Der, the company extends its design legacy into an architectural elements home brand for today. PINKYS continues to evolve and refine its vision with every year, fueled by the desire to transform homes into places of light and beauty.
