PINKYS helps facilitate that quintessentially Californian experience of bringing the outdoors in, and vice versa, thanks to its beautifully fabricated windows and doors.
NOT ONLY IS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA full of visionary talents who dream big, but the region is also home to a vast array of highly skilled makers and craftspeople. Collaborating with diverse builders and artisans truly allows the work of architects and designers to shine. Ask design professionals if just about anything can be made locally, and they likely will answer in the affirmative. Here are some masters of their respective fields working behind the scenes who help bring special spaces to life.
PINKYS helps facilitate that quintessentially Californian experience of bringing the outdoors in, and vice versa, thanks to its beautifully fabricated windows and doors. Vic Der began hand-forging iron in the late 1970s in his native Iran, where he was also a professional jazz drummer. After arriving in L.A. in 1987, he found a new creative outlet in fabricating custom iron doors, windows, and architectural elements, an effort that eventually led to him establishing his own bespoke ironworks studio. Vic's sons Dion and Arin took the reins in 2014 and continue to evolve the family business, which includes new visual branding by Brian Roettinger of multidisciplinary firm Perron-Roettinger. PINKYS products are available through its e-commerce platform and at its Vernon showroom, which is currently being reimagined by interior designer Jeremiah Brent. Counted among its other clients and fans are Nate Berkus, writer/producer Ryan Murphy, and actress Vanessa Hudgens.
