Selecting Dernier & Hamlyn is plain sailing for Winch Design19.10.17
Winch Design is dedicated to taking the dreams of its clients and turning them into reality and has worked on many projects with the team at Dernier & Hamlyn who have designed and manufactured lighting for yachts and luxury homes that reflect the clients’ tastes, lifestyle and requirements. While each project is totally unique, what underpins both companies’ work is quality, attention to detail and the enthusiasm of all the people involved.
Simon Tomlinson, Head of Architecture at Winch Design outlines why they choose Dernier & Hamlyn again and again. He says: “There are very few companies in the UK that manufacture bespoke lighting. However, it’s not just about the products, it’s equally about the high level of service they provide to our people, backed by technical knowledge that is extremely hard to come by. No other lighting manufacturer gives us the clarity of information, both technical and aesthetic, that Dernier & Hamlyn provides. Put simply, they make amazing lighting our clients love.”
When selected for lighting projects, Dernier & Hamlyn works with designers more on a partnership basis than simply as a supplier. From interpreting the clients’ aspirations and the designers’ concepts, through recommending appropriate materials and lamps that provide the desired effects to producing light fittings that will not only look the part, but will also technically meet the brief, all within budgetary limitations.
Simon continues: “Often we have an idea of what we want and what sort of atmosphere the lighting needs to create for our clients and we rely on Dernier & Hamlyn to make it all work. First they formalise our thoughts with technical drawings that carefully describe every element of the lighting. Then they use these to realise our custom designs to meet our clients’ aspirations and deliver exactly what is needed. They also keep a keen eye on costs which, even with luxury developments, is a vital factor in fulfilling our clients’ requirements.”
