We had a lovely visitor to Schofield this week. A true Viking of a man who made an interesting observation. He said “The Bare Bones Signalman is made for designer types like you”. He is right because I made them for me as I do with all Schofield products. But is a minimalist design exclusive to designers and those that are overtly focused on design? Do you have to be in the design club to be permitted to the right to get minimalism? I think not. Let’s change the word minimalism to stripped back or pared down or… bare bones. Now, like poetry that you cannot explain away – we just get it.
