English Furniture

Winch Design will host its discussion: ‘Superyachts, Private Jets and Architecture: The story of craftsmanship and design at the highest level’ alongside a showcase of the intricacies behind its work.

Since its inception in 1986, Winch Design has become known as the ‘go to’ studio for billionaires wishing to commission their dream home: on land, in the air and at sea. Initially specialising as a sailing yacht design studio, the studio now encompasses aviation and architecture. Winch has since delivered the largest superyacht in the world, the biggest private jet to hit the skies and the largest private residence in London – and shows no sign of slowing down.

Attendees will be able to meet the wood carvers, furniture makers, embroiderers, ceramicists and textile designers who have helped create some of Winch’s most iconic projects. ​​Visitors will be able to learn about their craft, gaining an insight into what it takes to create work for this calibre of clients.
