There is something intriguing about buttons.
Perhaps it is that buttons transform a two dimensional surface into a three dimensional texture. Although every pull and every button seem to look the same, they are all slightly different, not generated with sterile perfection but pulled by hand. The result lends to a pattern with aleatoric order, and testimonies of the art of craftsmanship, and the skilled craftsman himself, that patiently connected strings, strips, squares and buttons to form Winston.

“The details are not the details. They make the Design” Charles Eames.
Details are intentional and have a purpose, some technical, some esthetic, some both. The cover for example, that drapes over the rails and foot board serves the technical purpose to seamlessly connect them; At the same time it is meant to be pleasing to the eye. The headboard details can be observed from a couple of meters away focusing on the continuous pattern, or from a close distance. Winston is meant to integrate itself into the orchestra of intentional and unintentional details that surround people; the folds on the duvet cover; the art on the wall; the objects on the nightstand and their coincidental composition.

Last but not least Winston is an homenage to inspiring icons such as the Barcelona Chair by Mies van der Rohe and the chesterfield sofa which have sustainably shaped the furniture landscape since their introduction.
