Assouline Autum 2018 Legends Collection: Winch Design

A rare view into The World of Luxury Lifestyle – Superyachts, Private Planes and Amazing Homes, from one of the world’s leading designers.

London-based Winch Design takes the world of bespoke luxury lifestyle design to a higher level. Since its inception in 1986, the award-winning multidisciplinary studio has gone from strength to strength, initially specialising in superyachts and then expanding its focus into the realms of private aircraft and residential architecture. Winch Design creates spaces that are aesthetically faultless, like a work of art, but which can also be lived in and interacted with, custom-crafting a personalised lifestyle for each client. Serving as the high-water mark in the field of design excellence, over the last thirty years Winch Design has amassed countless awards and has earned commissions from some of the most discerning clients around the world.

Presenting a stunning range of the firm’s most beautiful bespoke designs from sea, air, and land, Winch Design brings readers aboard some of the world’s most exclusive, and elusive examples of design in motion—from spectacular superyachts to plush private jets and serene holiday homes—a splendid excursion in sumptuous design.

Narrating an elaborate tale of inspiration, this book provides an insight into the artistic and historical influences which lead the designers to push the boundaries of creative design. Featuring exquisitely proportioned pages showcasing art by Picasso, Matisse and Yves Klein, design inspiration from classics such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Pierre Chareau as well as original Winch Design concept drawings and photographs, this book promises to provide a feast for the eyes and for the imagination.
