Introducing Arc, the remarkable collaboration between Winch Design and Summit Furniture. Inspired by the vastness of the sea and sky, this exterior furniture range embodies the perfect blend of storytelling, meticulous attention to detail, and design excellence. The name “Arc” evokes imagery of latitude and longitude lines, sailing sails, and celestial navigation. The collection showcases the artistry of laminated teak, intricately woven between brushed stainless steel rods that gently arc around the seats, reminiscent of the ropes on sailing yachts.

Icons of Design


Andrew Winch’s deep-rooted passion for the sea, cultivated through his upbringing sailing along the south coast of England on dinghies and cruising yachts, permeates every aspect of his work. He laid the foundation for his career with formal training at St Martin’s School of Art in London and Kingston College of Art. Following his studies, he embarked on a transformative year, sailing across the Atlantic and exploring the Caribbean as a crew member on a private 52ft sailing yacht.

Upon his return, Andrew joined Jon Bannenberg Ltd. as an apprentice designer, immersing himself in the creation of four sailing yachts and refining his skills as both an exterior and interior yacht designer. Equipped with invaluable experience, he founded Winch Design in 1986, alongside his wife Jane. Less than two years later, the studio proudly delivered its inaugural project—a remarkable 36ft Swan sailing yacht.

Since then, Winch Design has left an indelible mark in the world of luxury yachting, presenting some of the most iconic vessels on the seas today. From the awe-inspiring Madame Gu and Dilbar to the extraordinary Ace and the recently unveiled Excellence, the studio’s portfolio speaks volumes of its unparalleled craftsmanship. Over the past 17 years, the company has expanded its expertise beyond yachts, establishing divisions dedicated to aviation and architecture. Today, Winch Design stands as a globally recognized, multi-disciplinary design studio, renowned for its unwavering commitment to excellence.
