Zaha Hadid Architecs | Generali Tower, detail of the interior decoration, Milan (Italy) Generali Tower is within the CityLife masterplan that has redeveloped Milan’s abandoned trade fair grounds following the fair’s relocation to Rho in 2005. Located above the new Tre Torri station on Line 5 of the city’s metro system, CityLife opens the 90-acre site to year-round public use for the first time; providing new civic spaces, public parks and residential areas, in addition to shopping districts and corporate offices. When fully completed in 2020, CityLife will be the largest new civic space and public park created in the city since Parco Sempione opened 130 years ago. Aligned at ground level with three of the city’s primary axes that converge within CityLife, the 170m (44-storey) Generali Tower connects with its surrounding public piazzas and park; the curvilinear geometries of its podium defined by the perceived centripetal forces generated from the staggered intersection of these three city axes at the tower’s base. With its interiors to be completed this summer, Generali Tower will house up to 3,900 employees to meet their continued growth as one of the world’s largest financial institutions. © Hufton+Crow

Zaha Hadid Architecs | 520 West 28th, New York (USA) 520 West 28th is Zaha Hadid Architects’ first project in New York City. There is a powerful urban dynamic between the streets of New York and the High Line, a layered civic realm that has developed over generations and in many iterations. 520 West 28th conveys this contextual relationship, applying new ideas and concepts to create the latest evolution of the site’s rich history. The split levels of the design define varied living spaces and echoes the multiple layers of civic space on 28th Street and the High Line. These split levels are expressed within the interlocking chevrons of 520 West 28th’s hand-crafted steel façade which carries the spirit of Chelsea’s industrial past; its detailed workmanship continues the venerable tradition within New York’s historic architecture of enhancing the public realm. Within an established community of over 350 art galleries that has seen the High Line’s transformation from abandoned freight rail line to public park, 520 West 28th embodies a commitment to uphold the distinctive character of its neighbourhood; creating a building with its own architectural presence, yet very much of its surroundings. © Hufton+Crow

EDITORIAL

Design District Are you ready to explore the sophisticated and controversial world of design? This issue leads us through many different design landscapes. Starting from the strong image we chose for the cover, announcing urban atmospheres where the design best expresses itself by transforming into an underground sensation, we leave for the discovery of the Miami Design District and the new Sham Shui Po area in Hong Kong. The opening section pays tribute to the works by Zaha Hadid Architects, the studio that has given a new face to the City of Milan with the new 170 meter-tall building, introduced to the media during the Design Week. A must-event chosen also by some yards, such as Sanlorenzo and Azimut Yachts, as an opportunity to involve visitors in a unique yachting experience. This issue goes beyond a conventional editorial plan, having chosen many artistic contents such as images inspired by the industrial archeology up to the Razzle Camouflage project by Princess Yachts and the Maori culture behind Oceanco Project Tuhura. Our artistic sensibility culminates in the section named "CONVERSATIONS, an art gallery where important works of the contemporary art are put in dialogue with yachts of particular significance.

Three important design studios - Vripack, Frank Neubelt and Optima Design - draw our attention to the importance of being multidisciplinary and able to offer clients a 360 degree approach to yacht design, from the first concept up to the final construction.

Thanks to the Dutch Association HISWA we visited the megayacht cluster of The Netherlands, the so-called Yacht Valley, the district that concentrates all the leading brands in the megayacht construction.

Zaha Hadid Architecs | Port House, Antwerp (Belgium) Following its commendation by the Architectural Review’s ‘New into Old’ awards in December 2017, Port House in Antwerp has been named ‘Best Refurbished Building’ at the MIPIM Awards 2018, the world's leading conference of property and real estate, recognising the most outstanding and accomplished projects across the globe. Port House in Antwerp repurposes, renovates and extends a derelict fire station into a new headquarters, connecting the city with the vital activities of its port. With 12km of docks handling 26% of Europe’s container shipping, Antwerp is the continent’s second largest port with ambitious targets for future expansion to meet the Europe’s growth over the next century. Working with heritage consultants Origin, ZHA’s historic analysis of the fire station revealed its unrealised tower. Port House is a composition of a new volume that ‘floats’ above the old building, respecting each of the existing facades and completing the verticality of the original design’s unbuilt central tower. The new extension points towards the city, connecting Antwerp with the port on which it was founded. Surrounded by water, the new extension's façade is a glazed surface that ripples like waves and reflects the changing tones and colours of the city’s sky. This perception of a transparent volume, cut to give the new building its sparkling appearance, reinterprets Antwerp’s moniker as the city of diamonds. © Tim Fisher, 2016

by Elisa Lemmo

The Design District is today one of the world's major hubs for contemporary art, especially in December during Art Basel Miami. Over the years, different buildings and architectural elements have become canvases for important artworks, such as the Moore Building’s event space with the amazing site-specific installation Elastika by Zaha Hadid and the new City View Garage, a new mixed-use building, part parking garage and part office and retail space, featuring John Baldessari’s artworks. The American conceptual artist, best known for his works juxtaposing found photographs such as film stills (photos taken from behind the scenes of a film shoot), taking them out of their original context and rearranging their articulation, has been central to the development of conceptual art in the United States. In 2009 he received the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement, awarded by La Biennale di Venezia.

MIAMI, FUN AND SIMPLE. DON'T TAKE THINGS TOO SERIOUSLY!

MIAMI, A CITY THAT TALKS AND INVOLVES THROUGH THE LANGUAGE OF DESIGN AND CONTEMPORARY ART. NO OTHER CITY IN THE WORLD IS SO BUOYAN AS "THE CRUISE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD". JOHN BALDESSARI, ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENCIAL ARTISTS, HAS GIVEN THE CITY A CINEMATIC EFFECT THROUGH ITS ARTISTIC HOMAGE THAT GLORIFIES ITS PAST.

T

he Miami Design District is literally booming. But its story is nothing else than a very simple and natural metamorphosis. A story that talks about transformation and renovation. Where once there was only a pineapple farm, then a rough, industrial neighborhood overlooking a furniture district, today you see the Miami Design District emerging as an upscale shopping and art mecca. The luxurious block includes more than 200 retailers, art galleries, design showrooms, restaurants, boutique hotel and luxury residential lofts.

19

The seven-storey, 23,300 square metre City View Garage features a textured facade of perforated metal panels, designed by architecture firms IwamotoScott and Leong Leong and adorned by the art of John Baldessari. The building explores the relationship between material efficiency and atmospheric effects and the technique of cutting and folding is applied to a series of gold titanium coated steel panels, which in turn generate a shimmering foliage-like pattern.

The works, titled Fun One and Fun Two are comprised of production stills taken from Baldessari’s extensive archive of found images, printed large-scale onto perforated metal and mounted to the sides of the building. The result is a cinematic effect made by black and white images, portraying a deco-styled woman in her bathing suit, playtime in the water, and the simple pleasures of what feels like summer. As Miami works toward redefining itself as a place of higher culture, it’s amusing that Baldessari – one of today’s most influential conceptual artists – would choose such a carefree beach scene for a very progressive-looking structure in the city. This is the satire and simplicity that is Baldessari, and a welcome reminder not to take things too seriously. For those who know the famed artist’s expansive body of work, it will be easy to recognize how the relationship between vantage points, the use of multiple canvases and the application of two or more elements are characteristic of his process. The artwork was commissioned by developer Craig Robins and may cause commuters to wonder if the artist’s works are an ad campaign for the revitalized neighborhood or a contemporary art installation; further, how will this distinction matter?

Soft elements, like velvet armchairs, offset harder surfaces and industrial features, such as rivets. Contemporary luxury is suggested not only by the employment of beautiful and idiosyncratic materials, but also through a determinedly spare use of space. In keeping with the elegant and contemporary eclecticism that characterizes Gucci’s new collections, the store sees the combination of traditional and modern, industrial and romantic.

HONG KONG, LIKE IN A PARALLEL UNIVERSE OKUDA SAN MIGUEL IS ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST RECOGNIZABLE STREET ARTISTS OF TODAY, HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER FOR LARGE SCALE PROJECTS. BEST KNOWN FOR HIS CONVERSION OF AN ABANDONED SPANISH CHURCH (KAOS TEMPLE), WHICH HAS BECOME A NEW ICON OF CONTEMPORARY ART, HE GAVE HONG KONG A NEW SENSE OF IDENTITY.

W

hen faced with the challenge of a lack of available land, Hong Kong decided to look up. Today, Asia’s world city has more than 7,600 skyscrapers, high-rises and other iconic buildings that make it a living showcase of the best in international contemporary architecture. Rapidly become centre for modern architecture and contemporary design, Hong Kong is also a place full of contrasts, which influenced the creative soul of the capital, pushing it to develop its design district and expanding also on the art scene. Today the art world has definitively crowned Hong Kong as the epicenter of art in Asia. And there’s more on the horizon since more and more international galleries are setting up their new locations along Hong Kong’s sloping streets where you can already find Massimo de Carlo and Sprüth Magers among the recent ones.

Sham Shui Po district is the name of the area with the largest concentration of art and design, and perfectly reflects the contrast of the city with the fusion of its ancient heritage with western influences. Hong Kong has made remarkable progress in forging a profitable art market and increasingly a vibrant art scene, much of that progress having been achieved in little under a decade. In January the Government has announced its plans to revitalize this area and to launch it as a design and fashion centre. The initiative aims at helping nurture a new generation of design and fashion talents, driving local tourism and boosting the local economy. The renovation has already started with the organization of the annual street art festival, Hong Kong Wall, as a reaction to the Asian architecture mostly connotated by utilitarian shades of gray and beige. In 2016 the Spanish street artist and muralist Okuda San Miguel added the ‘rainbow thief’ to the façade of a narrow residential building, transforming the architecture and the neighborhood in a vision of a multicolor bear. Made for the 2016 edition of Hong Kong Walls, Okuda completed the technicolor vibrant mural from top to bottom, adding rainbow graphics at the lower levels of the building.

Kaos Temple, Spain. Courtesy of Ink and Movement. The friendly image of a bear is finished in a spectrum of saturated hues, formed by the interlocking of geometric shapes. The artist’s distinct approach of using triangles and squares to illustrate human and animal figures is an unmistakable aspect of ‘rainbow thief’. Also, the eyes of the bear are filled in with a painting of a starry night sky — another emblematic trait of his work. By adding the work to part of the city’s existing urban fabric, Okuda artistically alters the character and impression of the architecture for visitors and residents alike.

In his work, rainbow geometric architectures blend with organic shapes, bodies without identity, headless animals and symbols that encourage reflection in artistic pieces that could be categorized as Pop Surrealism with a clear essence of street forms. His works often raise questions about existentialism, the universe, the infinite, the meaning of life, and the contradictions of the false freedom of capitalism, showing a conflict between modernity and our roots; ultimately, between man and the same.

The kaleidoscope mural, inspired by the movie "The Rainbow Thief" by Alejandro Jodorowsky, has the effect of a colourful creature able to transform everyday spaces into vibrant environments, altering the perception of the space. Not only does it reinvigorate the highly urbanised area, but it adds a new sense of identity to the district. Portrait of the artist

The all-new R Class will feature the unique Princess Active Foil System (AFS) and deliver the fastest and most efficient Princess boating experience to date.

Last May Princess revealed its Manga TV Commercial for this ground-breaking new yacht. The month long campaign was inspired by Japanese Anime and Manga style illustrations, a style that has never before been used by a luxury yacht brand. This unique campaign teases the top secret new yacht - which is still in development and prototype testing - that is due to be launched in September this year.

"THROUGHOUT THE EARLY DEVELOPMENT OF OUR REVOLUTIONARY NEW R35 SECRECY WAS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE, SO WHEN THE TIME CAME TO SEA TRIAL THE PROTOTYPE IT RAISED THE QUESTION - HOW DO YOU DISGUISE A YACHT ON WATER? FOR THE ANSWER WE LOOKED TO PLYMOUTH’S RICH NAVAL HERITAGE".

Dazzle is a marine camouflage conceived in the early 20th century by former art student, Norman Wilkinson, while serving as an officer in the British Royal Navy in Plymouth, England. Designed to confuse rather than conceal, the unique geometric design of the dazzle camouflage was credited with saving many vessels during World War 2 by making it difficult for enemy craft to judge the speed, direction and size of a ship. The first full scale use of dazzle was applied at the historic naval dockyard in Plymouth which today is the home of Princess Yachts M Class superyachts.

© Princess Yachts

Third year students at the Plymouth College of Art were commissioned to create a unique dazzle design for the R Class, with the final design being supplied by student Katie Sheppard, who took inspiration from Wilkinson’s original concept as well as modern-day influences including Austrian illusionist Peter Koglers and the Fiera Milano exhibition centre.

INDUSTRIAL ARCHEOLOGY

WHEN SHAPES AND LIGHT EFFECTS BECOME ART by Elisa Lemmo and Pamela Paci

SUPERYACHT DIGEST |

July 2018

In the late 1950s, thanks to Bernd and Hilla Becher, two German conceptual artists and photographers, landscapes such as old factories, canals, railways, water towers, blast furnaces, gas tanks, mine heads and grain elevators started to be of interest as subjects for photography. The German duo, through their DĂźsseldorf School, influenced generations of documentary photographers as well as artists all over the world, contributing to make the photography of industrial architecture significantly popular.

The industrial heritage includes buildings, machinery, artifacts, sites, infrastructure, documents and other items associated with the production. The fascination and concept of industrial landscapes reside in the shape of the structures, on their regular sharpness, on neutral lighting effects and on geometrical patterns. In the images here proposed, we enter the industrial atmosphere of some important Italian shipyards. Looking at these photos representing the building areas and process as an artistic landscape, the effect perceived is very similar to the emotional impact of industrial archeology photography. Shapes, proportions, sizes, light effects, reflections work as a leitmotiv inside this steel forest.

PRIMORDIAL CREATURE THREE NAMES FOR ONE DESIGN: LOBANOV YACHT DESIGN, BMT, ACHILLE SALVAGNI ATELIER. OCEANCO PRESENTS "TUHURA", A 115M YACHT CONCEPT THAT BRINGS US BACK TO THE ORIGINS WHEN MAN LIVED IN DEEP CONNECTION TO NATURE AND HIS ONLY MISSION WAS TO EXPLORE THE WORLD.

Put two minds such as Achille's and Igor's working together and you will get something extraordinary. Their ability in conceiving unique perspectives brings to unexpected ideas. And this time - the very first time they work together - has led to the creation of a design that harkens back to ancient times.

The exterior styling is reminiscent of early canoes, dugouts and other vessels used hundreds of years ago by indigenous people all over the world. The Polynesians, in particular, famously made long voyage explorations across thousands of miles of open Pacific Ocean in their outrigger canoes.

RE-ORIGIN

P

roject Tuhura is the name given by Dutch shipyard Oceanco to its latest creation born from the collaboration with the Lobanov Design studio, BMT Nigel Gee and interior designer Achille Salvagni. The project was unveiled in March at the Dubai International Boat Show.


MAORI

The thinking behind revisiting basic primal forms is to evoke a sense of exploration and discovery. In fact, the actual name, Tuhura is derived from the Maori verb meaning "to discover, bring to light, unearth, open up, explore, and investigate".

“Our Tuhura is a simple idea”, explains Igor Lobanov. “The thought was to take a natural shape similar to those seen in the earliest canoe-type craft and augment it multifold to a larger scale, using modern technology”.

“This is a technically challenging and intriguing project”, says Dirk de Jong, Commercial Director at Oceanco. “It is 180-degrees different from our previous two yacht collaborations with Lobanov Design studio, the 86m launched in 2013 and the 110m Jubilee launched just last year. Yet Tuhura is still 100% Oceanco DNA”.

Innovation and cutting-edge technology is evident throughout the design. The hull has been conceived with multiple horizontal windows, utilising an advanced glass technology that consists of a series of dots, allowing the view from within to be completely transparent, while from the exterior, the windows appear the same colour as the hull, disguising their appearance. Glass features further in the impressive black superstructure made up of flat glass panels.

Tuhura’s hull and propulsion system have been developed in collaboration with BMT. The pure simplicity of the canoe form leads to a naturally efficient hull with low overall resistance, good seakeeping and excellent maneuverability. However, integrating a modern propulsion system in the canoe form presents a challenge: the team opted for a hybrid Azipod® CRP (contra-rotating) propulsion system from ABB. The development of this system was initially trialed in 2003 and it is currently being applied with success on commercial vessels.

Progressive and creative thinking extends to all the systems aboard. LuxLab, the custom design label from Van Berge Henegouwen (VBH) has joined the team to ensure that this is an extremely “smart boat”. Not only are there controls for HVAC, lighting, audio, video, curtains and such, but controls will also monitor behavior aboard regarding preferences such as music and temperature. Furthermore, there are plans to create a 360-degree room, a multipurpose space for both interactive design and information.

James Roy, Yacht Design Director at BMT, stated, “The hybrid CRP system is inherently efficient and perfectly suited to the canoe form, there is a synergy between the efficiency of the hull form, and that of the propulsion system, leading to a yacht which marries an evolutionary simple hull with an evolutionary advanced propulsion system”.

TECH & GLASS


Lobanov’s masterful exterior design works well with the interior and is inherently flexible so that the yacht can be designed in any size from 80-120 meters in length.

Interior Design: Achille Salvagni In these pages: three renderings for the living area

The main inspiration for the interior design is East Asia and the Pacific islands. Achille Salvagni refers to the interior as a “brushed teak habitat� (floors, walls, ceilings) including thin reveals in gunmetal and natural bronze with tatami floors.

Tuhura is a megayacht conceived for a dynamic owner, nevertheless the timeless sense of peace and calmness are the main characteristics. This softness and dynamicity are reflected in the humble elegance and sensuality of the primitive organic shapes echoed throughout.

Conversations by PAMELA PACI

THE FOLLOWING IMAGES ARE PROPOSED AS A SORT OF ART GALLERY WHERE DESIGN AND ART ARE PUT IN DIALOGUE TO CREATE AN INTERCATION BETWEEN THEIR SHAPES, EMOTIONS AND MEANINGS. BOTH WORLDS SEEM TO TRY TO REACH A THIRD DIMENSION, A MESSAGE BEYOND THEIR APPEARANCE.

The subject of what separates art and design has been debated for a long time. Artists and designers both create visual compositions using a shared knowledge base, but their reasons for doing so are entirely different. Art sends different message to everyone. Design sends the same message to everyone. In this section we want to challenge the readers to just listen the conversation between the works, be they design products or artworks, and let them draw their own conclusions about how much design and art can have in common.

Richard Serra is one of the most significant artists of his generation. Born in 1938 in San Francisco, California, he has produced large-scale, site-specific sculptures for architectural, urban, and landscape settings spanning the globe, from Iceland to New Zealand. "Rifts" is the name of the exhibition of some of his drawings at Gagosian. The Rifts get their name from the distinctive white shapes—elongated triangles—that punctuate their otherwise unrelenting tarmac blackness, and perhaps from the geological term for a rent in the earth’s surface caused by moving tectonic plates. These sharp-edged triangular rifts are negative shapes, the white of the blank paper. An invention in drawing but one demanding their own rigor, they happen at the junction of two sheets of paper. The stringent intelligible structures of the Rift Drawings obstruct

us from seeing their white divisions expressively as other kinds of rupture—psychological, historical, ontological. Yet minimal metaphors of drawing remain: tension, balance, presence, space. The imposing scale and gross materiality of the Rifts hover just long enough on this border, perhaps, to make us more conscious of the operations of metaphor in our relationship to drawing. The first Rifts date from 2011, and were shown at The Menil Collection, Houston, in 2012, and at Gagosian Paris, London, and Los Angeles, 2013–17.

"I use black because it is a color that doesn’t transport elusive emotions" —Richard Serra

The work by Lucio Fontana, Spacial Concept: Waiting (1965), was exhibited by Mazzoleni art gallery at the latest edition of the MIART art fair last April. Spatial Concept, Waiting is one of a series of works Fontana made in Milan between 1958 and 1968. These works, which all consist of a canvas that has been cut either once or multiply, are collectively known as the Tagli ('cuts'). Considered together, they are Fontana's most extensive and varied group of works and they have come to be seen as emblematic of his gestural aesthetic. Fontana first began puncturing the surface of paper or canvas in the late 1940s, blurring the distinction between two and three dimensionality. Recognising the importance of this innovation, he continued, through the 1950s and 1960s, to seek different ways of developing the hole as his signature

gesture. The first Tagli were made in the late summer and early autumn of 1958. They comprised small, often diagonal incisions, composed in groups over unprimed canvases. During 1959 these tentative slits evolved into single, more decisive slashes, as in the present work. Each cut was made with a single gesture using a sharp blade, and the canvases were then backed with strong black gauze giving the appearance of a void behind. In 1968 Fontana told an interviewer: "my discovery was the hole and that's it. I am happy to go to the grave after such a discovery". Fontana is best known for spatialist paintings in which the integrity of the picture plane is violated by slashes or holes. These works inspired a generation of Italian artists, including Giò Pomodoro and Castellani.

Born in Florence in 1940 and died in Rome in 1971, Paolo Scheggi was a pioneer in the practice of approaching paintings as objects, creating layered monochromatic works that emphasized the picture plane’s physicality over its representational potential. At a young age, his sheet metal assemblages and collages attracted the attention of art critic Germano Celant and artist Lucio Fontana. He later received international acclaim for his “Intersuperfici” and “Strutture Modulari” works, which feature solidly colored canvases or sheets of cardboard dotted with small elliptical apertures. Placed atop one another, each layer exposes the one beneath it. Scheggi’s work has been included in multiple Venice Biennales, both during and immediately after his short life.

He was briefly associated with the Nul and Zero groups and the New Tendencies movement, all of which reacted against the dominant postwar expressionist movements. Within a “long” decade (1958-1971) the research of Paolo Scheggi went through different fields of knowledge and different disciplines, from visual arts to architecture to fashion, from poetry to urban and theatrical performances to arrive at a conceptual and metaphysics reflection. Characterized by a strong interdisciplinary approach, the route taken by Paolo Scheggi may be condensed in interpretation given by by Giovanni Maria Accame in 1976: "from the exhibition of the project to project of the exhibition".

Born in Harlem, NY, Kip Omolade began his art career as a graffiti artist while interning at Marvel Comics and The Center for African Art. He continued his studies at The Art Students League of New York and earned a BFA at the School of Visual Arts. His work has been exhibited in galleries around the world and on Good Morning America, Huffington Post, Juxtapoz and Hi-Fructose. Special projects and partnerships include collaborations with Sony Music, Red Bull and Nike. Viacom exhibited and acquired his Diovadiova Kitty Cash V painting, which was a tribute to New York City. His oil painting is a portrait of Times Square, New York City. "Ever since I was a teenager in the 80’s, I wanted to use art to capture the energy of The Big Apple. When I was younger, my friends and I usually go to “The Deuce” or 42nd Street in

Manhattan for fun. There was always something exciting about the lights, sounds and scale of Times Square", says the artist. The subject of his painting is DJ Kitty Cash, who like him, hails from Brooklyn. He made a chrome mold of her face and used it as a reference for the painting. He spent an entire day photographing her mask, trying to capture her essence. Then the perfect light came and he could capture what he was looking for all day. The light gave the face an expression of peace and innocence but also defiance. The skyscrapers became exaggerated hopeful eyebrows. The over-the-top eyelashes embodied the drama and glamour of a Broadway musical. Within the mask, reflections of my face, along with other details, were duplicated and distorted in a fun house mirror effect.

In his early teens Mike Fields studied under his father, Chester Fields, learning technique and design. His father emphasized the importance of composition, proportion and attention to detail throughout his tutorship. With time and consideration, Mike breathes life into his creations, developing his skills with each precise movement of his instrument. Quality workmanship is never compromised in order to release a new piece into the marketplace before Mike believes it is ready— his original masters require 500 to 2000 hours to complete, and each new composition demands more attention to meet his growing expectations. Mike’s personal journey with art mirrors his path through life. "Since childhood, I have been seeking answers to the deep questions that are at the heart of us all and have not been deterred by the answers that are

so readily available. This inquiry into truth has added a depth of meaning, peace and an appreciation for life that I could not have found any other way”, says Mike. Mike’s deep inquiry into style, culture, and methodologies transcends his work into powerful, well-executed pieces. He believes art comes in many forms and surrounds us at all times in our daily life. "Although art is subjective in its nature, I believe objective qualities such as attention to craftsmanship and the depth of thought that go into a work are necessary to support the power of the piece. I am only beginning to understand that art is much more than mastery of technique". "Alien Spires" is a contemporary stainless steel sculpture suggesting what art or architecture might look like on an alien world.

DESIGN IDENTITY BEING MULTIDISCIPLINARY IS THE KEY TO BE INNOVATIVE. LOOKING FOR THE BEST SOLUTION FROM DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES ALLOWS YOU TO BETTER EXPLORE A SITUATION. BUT THEN THERE IS THE OPEN QUESTION ABOUT DESIGN IDENTITY.

(From Left) Antonio Luxardo, Michele Zignego | Optima Design

O

ne day at Optima Design can be a real adventure! The La Speziabased design firm, headed by Michele Zignego and Antonio Luxardo, is a very young environment with a solid and specific background in yacht design. Today the trend is no longer to simply offer concepts or ideas, but be able to provide integrated solutions to actually solve real problems. The world is sufficiently full of creative minds. Yards and clients in order to be fully efficient need to be supported by yacht design studios to which they can commission the entire vision of the project, from the concept up to the last detail, that

must be well-designed and engineered. Antonio Luxardo boasts an excellent reputation within the yachting industry with more than 300 designs developed for final clients and yards during his 30year career. He started as co-partner and co-founder of Pro-Ship, a design studio that among its latest activities also includes a magnificent design concept named Blue Bay of the East, a project for a city of luxury in the urban area of Zhoushan, 200 Km far from Shanghai. The project involved an area of 35 square kilometers where to build one 7-star hotel, a 5 star hotel, two large shopping streets, 350 villas, an opera house with 3000 seats, a marina for 1,500 boats. 79

Interior design concept

Optima Design is present today in the superyacht industry as a multi-disciplinary design company where professionals, coming from different fields, such as yachting, industrial design, automotive and strategic communication industries, can create and develop cutting-edge products in new and innovative ways.

The design studio efficiently works for the most important Italian yacht builders, providing its services both for pleasure boats and for other kinds of vessels. They are involved in every project in order "TO MAKE THE BOAT A PROJECT THAT CAN BE REALLY BUILT. The design stage is everything but simple. It is an activity that must be faced seriously and in full knowledge of every aspects surrounding the final project. Today our industry suffers - among other problems - from the lack of knowledge around the importance of the design and pre-design phase. Designing a boat - under all aspects, I mean - is the only right approach to yacht building. It prevents from unaspected situations, it avoids the need to find last-minute solutions and, above all, allows you to build without extra-costs, for the yard or for the client", says Antonio Luxardo. Optima Design is involved in the project as the studio to which the yard can commission the entire design - it means the concept, the architecture, the engineering phase - or simply only one part of the construction. Optima works in full flexibility guaranteeting the highest level of quality standards for the smallest projects up to, and above, 70m constructions.

OPTIMA 88M Antonio Luxardo has always been convinced about the importance of the identity of every project. Something not to be confused with the hand of the designer. Every designer should create specifically for the identity of the brand, not for himself. "You see many similiar yachts today signed by the same designer but built by different yards under different brands. And they look almost identical. I think that every project should be created with a specifical identity, in order to be recognized for what it is, rather than for its signature. In this way you can grant the brand a double added-value: your signature, if you are a famous designer, combined with recognisability. "Our 88m megayacht concept has been designed taken into consideration this precise goal. The exteriors show precise and geometrical lines along the lateral balconies, which make the boat immediately recognizable, unmistakable and unique. This particular characteristic, detectable also by the non-experts, should be reserved only to one brand in order to support and help its identity". This 88m project was developed by Optima for one of their potential Asian clients who asked them to create "a boat with an amazing beach area". They started to create the project imagining an aft with an incredible "wow effect" in this part of the yacht. The project is now under final evaluation and they are discussing futher details.

They also support the yards providing their human resources so that they can be integrated in the technical department of the yard for a period of time needed during the designing phase.

T2 is the name of the design concept for a 85m yacht where the relationship between the interiors and the exteriors is helped by the extensive use of the glass, chosen not only as main design element but with a functional intent.


Interior design concept

THE MAGICAL EFFECT OF THE GLASS Simplicity and pureness in lines are the first goal in every well-conceived project. This does not mean you can not add striking effects or particularly creative design solutions. "A yacht is not only an amazing experience at sea", says Antonio Luxardo. "It is not only about cruising and living adventures. It is an emotion to be lived as an artistic form of expression. As a designer you have a wide range of choices you can implement to sensitise clients from this point of view. Our T2 project has been designed with a large use of glass to create an incredibly magic atmophere for those who have the priviledge to live the boat from the inside but also for those who simply look at it admiring its beauty".

In this project unveiled by Optima Design, the use of glass is a key design element combined with a very well recognizable exteriors. "Today designers are allowed to play with their creations. We should try to involve much more our clients and potential new yacht owners in the yacht design phase, allowing them to live it as a funny moment when they can also become kids again. We would sell much more boats. There are so many elements and materials that now you can use to make your boat (megayacht) a totally personal experience. For example we can decide to use a kind of paint that during the days can absorbe the sunlight to reflect it at night, wouldn't it be amazing?"

But Optima Design is much more than design. Coming from different international experiences, they have developed a particular ability in recognizing - detecting - how all the different cultures are evolving. "In some cases we can also talk about some countercultures. Our experience allows us to anticipate in our design concepts the ideal solutions to support the future needs of our clients".

Optima Design is a team of professionals with a deep knowledge in the different kinds of markets, especially with a specific background in the Asiatic region. From the study they developed for an Italian yard, a focus on the Chinese market and China as a potential region for shipbuilding, some interesting results have emerged. According to their report, in the past years there had been a positive period of time when some yards in China seemed to have find the way to start their builds, but then due to an arrest in the development of the domestic market, no yard proved to be successful. And for many different reasons: the high level of taxation on imports, no significant investment in the infrastructures, and above all the lack of the nautical culture, that still seems slow in coming.

Optima Design is currently working also on different explorer yacht solutions, a kind of vessel currently recording a high demand in the market. "Explorers allow to live the boat and the sea in a very different way and today yacht owners see the boat more as an experience to live than a mere vessel to cruise the sea".

BEACH-HOUSE ATMOSPHERE FOR A GLOBETROTTING YACHT M5 IS THE CODE NAME FOR THE LATEST INTERIOR DESIGN PROJECT DEVELOPED BY VRIPACK, THE DUTCH YACHT DESIGN STUDIO WITH A QUITE UNIQUE WORKING STRUCTURE, COVERING THE ENTIRE PROCESS OF DESIGNING, FROM DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE TO THE ENGINEERING PHASE. NO DETAIL ABOUT THE EXTERIORS OF THIS 37.7 METRE EXPLORER YACHT HAS BEEN UNVEILED SO FAR.

F

rom the moment they established their studio in 1961, Vripack's approach to design has been governed by the

playful interaction between

form and function. Vripack is a yacht design studio, made strong through its extensive naval architecture and engineering experience. With decades of experience at its disposal and a portfolio that represents over 7,400 designs, Vripack has been able to evolve its processes to be as efficient and as effective as possible. Vripack’s unique working structure, which provides an

holistic approach to the design of a yacht, ensures that

they produce better boats in less time. Their involvement in the entire process of designing the safest and most durable yachts ensures that clients and their guests feel

at sea.

at home

All Vripack's projects involve a multi-disciplinary team that

is brought together specifically for that project from the day of commission. It means that while a designer is shaping a staircase, for instance, an engineer will be calculating the factors required to make it structurally feasible within budget; while a naval architect is drafting the curve of the hull at the point where it meets the waterline, a designer will already be contemplating the interior layout that might best suit the other side of the curve.In their latest interior design project developed for a build that can not be unveiled, light is a visible yet untouchable element, as the rich tradition of Dutch design requires. In every studio’s interior design, experimentation with light is an aesthetic key-factor. In the interiors of project M5, Vripack playfully combines natural light with an ambient freshness, enhancing the exact beach-house’s atmosphere the South American owner’s family loves so much. Vripack’s designers spent hours in the

sample library

to select the perfect woods, stones and textiles for the interiors of this globetrotting yacht.

CENTRAL TO ALL DECISIONS, IS THE SPORTIVE OUTDOOR LIFESTYLE THAT THE CLIENTS HAVE. PARTICULARLY KITE SURFING IS A PASSION THEY ALL SHARE. SO A TYPICAL MORNING YOGA WORKOUT IN THE GYM, A BREAKFAST AT THE AFT DECK FOLLOWED BY KITING OFF THE BACK ARE JUST LOGICAL OPTIONS THAT GIVE SHAPE TO THIS ACTIVE LIFESTYLE.

“After carefully balancing the layout of the yacht to various uses during day and night time, we opted for re-used oak from New York warehouses to cover the floors. It immediately provides the yacht with personality which you can’t get by using a new material,” says Marnix Hoekstra, creative director at Vripack. “Our interiors are all about light, dark and the playful balance in between. So we combined the light sofas, designed by Piet Boon, with a concrete and matblack steel central staircase.”

Rock is the 24-metre pocket explorer, in build in Turkey for owner Ali Sayakci, developed by Vripack and inspired by their new creative platform called VriThink!

Just as one prioritizes livability when contemplating a land-based home, so does Vripack when designing yachts. Every aspect of a yacht’s layout, from the placement and proportions of the spaces and the relationships between them to the situation of the stairs, service routes and doors, must fit together coherently and align with its owner’s needs and lifestyle.

Outdoor living is trending and clients now ask "what do we want to do in our outdoor areas?" Millenials, the current generation of young people - now want to be active and sportive, they ask for athletic outdoors, both fun and functional, equipped with lighting and audio/visual systems to entertain guests or kids, with some ‘wow’ features. Exactly as in home design the yards have become key-areas and lifesize chess boards, yoga spaces, bocce ball courts, outdoor kitchens and fire are immensely popular, also on board a yacht the outdoor is lived as an extension of the design experience to be integrated in the lifestlyle. In the case of the M5, the owners went further and chose for outdoor atmospheres also in the interiors, sign that new generations of owners demand for more relaxed situations where to feel free and comfortable.

Finding the right answer to this question has bugged Vripack for years and was the reason for them to launch a forwardthinking platform called VriThink! One of the goals is to generate an open stage in order to produce and develop forward-thinking designs. The platform shows how various innovative, social, economic and design trends happening in all industries around the world can be reflected to the yachting industry.

THERE ARE NO TRENDS IN YACHTING, OR ARE THERE…?

"With this knowledge, we predict that the perception of time is going to be crucial in the coming years. Our customers of the future are getting highly influenced by their fast moving environment. New techniques result in fast moving and disruptive innovations which form new standards that will not only challenge our industry but also the industries around us. Early adopters of today’s trends will benefit of their gained knowledge in the nearby future, making it possible to holistically exceed expectations towards creating better boats in less time, which is exactly what we aim for!"

F

rank E.H. Neubelt is one of the most international award winnig German yacht designers and naval architects. His creativity made him one of the most respected and influential German yacht designers of all times.

He founded his earlier studio - Newcruise - in 1990 starting a long career in custom styling, concepts, naval architecture, layouts and yacht interiors for designs ranging from 20 to 115 meters in lenght. Award winning yachts were born from his pen, 67m Triple-Seven, 74m Siren and Sapphire, or midsizes like Gaya, Opium and Victoria del Mare to name a few. The famous 115m explorer Luna, that still remains one of the world's largest explorer superyachts, is a boat that made the history of shipbuilding. His innovative character stepped him several times on stage of international design award galas underlining "his way" of German yacht design out of his country, which is well known for world-class

superyacht manufacturing in quality and excellence. His 2010 innovative launch of very first concept studies of a 150m named by him Yachtliner, just inspired the new Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection Group in the creation of their own fleet of 190m standard luxury cruise liners (250 pax). But Frank's visionary mind went again a step further and introduced to the market a new generation of deluxe lifestyle, a new experience of superyacht socializing. His innovative concept for a super exclusive 7-star boutique superyacht hotel, named Y-Club100, the smallest of a fleet of four megayacht concepts, is thought as a real floating resort for just 36 guests (+50 crew members) who want to experience the exclusive superyacht life but in a more convivial way.

His personal 30-year successful design and naval architecture expertise is today offered to the clients through his new design hub GYC German Yacht Couture, an independent international project able to assist clients during the whole design process. Under the brand GYC, Frank Neubelt works in partnership with two main affiliates: naval architect Udo A. Hafner of iYACHT and naval engineering house FIDMAR of international renown naval- and hydrodynamic luminary Richard Anzbรถck.

96


German Yacht Couture has a fresh and innovative approach also in the way they phisically introduce theirselves: they will soon launch the GYC lounge concept-store showroom at Hamburg's famous HafenCity. The philosophy behind GYC is to coordinate the studio's designs via a special open-book cost process linked into an international network, with Neubelt’s position as the German Yacht Couture’s core designer and naval architect, but also as a centralizer of minds to realise exceptional superyachts.

GYC projects strategically operate also through other important partners abroad, in Italy, UK, USA and ASIA, who, according to the different projects, relate with the international project managers and world broker houses. The idea is to help clients design and build their yachts with a cost-controlled process from the first step of the designing phase to the delivery date. Even the legal aspect has been taken into consideration and included in the service: GYC has in fact teamed up with Hamburg-based experienced maritime lawyer Henning Schwarzkopf, to take care about all the legal aspects and advises necessary in the creation/building of a new megayacht. Always active as a “teamer”, Frank is the entrepreneur co-founder of the Yachting Industry Pool DEUTSCHE YACHTEN - GERMAN SUPER YACHTS, member of the International superyacht Society ISS and a volunteer board member of advising directors of the PORTS OF CAUSE foundation, USA.

PLANET 300

A: The first decade of the century saw the integration of many innovations and outstanding extraordinary solutions, which led to the creation of very individual yachts, mainly characterized by complex features, sometimes specifically requested by the particularly demanding owners who wanted to experiment the use of new technologies and new materials - such as carbon, strong aluminium and glass - or simply wanted to explore new ways of construction, new ways of assembling contemporary interior design and decorations. Such approach requires a wide spread of experience and know-how to make the ideas come true and thus developed and produced.

This is the main starting point to come up with new solutions and invent fresh ideas after the briefing from the owner. After all, we have to translate his desires into a very complex vehicle, the so-called dream, through which he or she, with their own lifestyle, will explore the world and the beauty of the oceans. It seems just philosophy, but it's not! From all point of views, it is a luxury product. This means time and flexibility are fundamental aspects.

In yacht design - both sailing and motor yachts - 100% professionality is fundamental, from the very first contact with the client to the first sketch, from the 3D presentations and renderings to the naval architecture. As a matter of fact, designing a yacht does not only mean to be creative and able to develop an idea in terms of style or look, but requires the designer to have a complete knowledge about the building process in order to be capable to find solutions in every moment and in every field, design, architecture, engineering or technologies.

no time and they do not want to wait over the deadline scheduled. Secondly, the yacht has to be built in order to allow the client to sail wherever he wants, around the globe. These needs are so specific that make yacht design so unique compared to all other luxury industries. In yacht design every project is designed, created, engineered in a limited period of time. You usually have only a couple of days, or maximum two weeks, in order to attract and seduce your potential client with the new idea and convince him to go further with the project.

h the c a o r p p a way to t s e b the 's t a h w , signer ? e d The t h c a y y a d s o t time factor when A y : r t Q indus t the yacht will be delivered - is the most h c a y r e important challenge and the first target. Owners have sup

I always refer to myself "not only as a designer". I am a YACHT DESIGNER, which means being a person whose knowledge comes from sailing and from an intensive experience with the sea.

But my team and I all love this challanging aspect of our job. You actually create something for another person - for the yacht owner in this case - but finally it is something you also create for yourself, yachts are our babies. We love them in every conditions... 98

A: I have always been very lucky throughout my career. With all of my clients I have worked for so far, be owners or yards, I have still a good relationship. And even though we all usually have short time, we can meet at least once a year, generally at the boat shows. Whenever we meet and talk about the yacht, a new idea always comes up. As a creator of the yacht, it is quite natural to keep open and spontaneus the relationship with the client. To me it is a way to be grateful to his trust. I usually do the same with the yards and with all other players who contributed to the construction of the yacht. We all together worked to the same project and to make it reality. We are all parts of the same dream and creators, artists, of a product with the finest technologies.

The hub can count on my long career, from styling to technologies, with the highest level of professionality.

We also work individually but as a German group we represent a team of specialists - each one with specific skills in his own field of activity - who have the ambition to raise attention on the German quality and on a selection of world class yards that we consider as the best players currently on the market. With them we can work as a contemporary design hub, assisting clients from the very first concept to sketches, CAD, 3D-renderings, GAlayouts, interiors and decorations, also guaranteeing high standards and already approved methods.

We aim at getting in touch with experienced owners and new clients, providing the highest level of professionality also in terms of honesty and seriousness.

very year in May the HISWA Holland Yachting Group, the association representing the world’s leading Dutch companies in the superyacht industry - organizes an exclusive press tour inside the Dutch cluster to discover their district, heritage, personality and strenghts. This year, attended by a group of selected international journalists from Europe, the US, Australia and Russia, the event kicked off on 28 May and was one of the most interesting editions ever organized, since year after year the association reaches higher and higher standards due to their capacity to work as a system. In 4 days we visited the building sites of Feadship, Amels, Royal Huisman, Oceanco, Heesen, and met a lot Dutch companies also from the supply chain, which has given us the unique opportunity to enrich our cultural baggage around the Dutch industry.

The National Maritime Museum invites visitors to discover how the sea has shaped Dutch culture. This museum has an impressive collection of historical objects including weapons, paintings, world maps and scale models. The crown jewel of the museum is a full-size replica of a cargo ship from the 18th-century that shipwrecked in the English Channel on its maiden voyage to the East Indies. The National Maritime Museum Amsterdam is situated in the impressive building which once was the arsenal of the Admiralty of Amsterdam.

The tour started with a press meeting with the representatives of the Port of Amsterdam, with which HISWA has just concluded an agreement for the development of the city as new destination for superyachts. The diversity in berths located in the hearth of the city centre, combined with excellent refit and maintenance facilities in the port area make Amsterdam a unique destination for superyachts.

Amsterdam is perfectly placed, in terms of geography as well as regulations and refit facilities. The city has unbeatable secure docking options for superyachts right in the city centre – including the iconic National Maritime Museum and the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam – as well as a UNESCO World Heritage city centre. Amsterdam is a vibrant city with world class museums, luxury shopping, culinary restaurants and famous festivals, truly a unique destination to explore.

FEADSHIP | Kaag Local residents and people driving and sailing past the Feadship yard in Kaag are used to seeing impressive superyachts docked up alongside the facility. Each is unique, of course, as Feadship only builds pure custom motoryachts, but it is fair to say that this latest newcomer in the water has a distinctive look all of her own.


INDUSTRIAL LOOK

© Tom van Oossanen

The 74m Sherpa - currently under construction at the Royal Van Lent facility in Kaag, with delivery scheduled later this year - was launched via the slipway in order to facilitate work that was impossible to achieve inside the giant construction hall due to the yacht’s height. Already an imposing sight, Sherpa became even taller as her remarkable mast, air/exhaust funnels and cranes were added to the deck. Created for a highly experienced yachtsman and repeat client for Feadship, Sherpa has an explorer-like exterior profile, accentuated by an unfaired hull which leaves the plate work and welding exposed. This sturdy finish was expressely requested by the owner who wished to generate an industrial look. At the same time, Sherpa’s exterior still features a wealth of highend details, including lots of teak, polished stainless steel and meticulously dressed aluminium and steel elements. Created in partnership with RWD, the expedition-style architecture will enable Sherpa to carry a great deal of equipment wherever she sails. The owner wishes to have all kinds of transportation and logistics options available as he embarks on his adventures in different parts of the world, including large tenders and various vehicles to use on land.


AMELS The magnificent entrance of the Amels HQs in Vlissingen, which were once the historic headquarters of Royal Schelde. Just a short walk from Amels on-site helicopter landing platform, the history of Dutch shipbuilding is embodied in the great halls of this building, proving AMELS is proud to maintain the legacy of the Dutch shipbuilding. Amel's production currently counts 14 new build yachting projects underway, to be delivered between 2018 and 2021.


This photo was taken during our visit on board a new 74-metre yacht, the sixth construction from the AMELS 242 design. The Amels 242 belongs to the AMELS Limited Editions range, introduced in 2005. Since then Amels has delivered 33 Limited Editions yachts generating â‚Ź1.5 billion in sales turnover.


OCEANCO UK-based BMT Nigel Gee and Dutchbased superyacht builder Oceanco have announced during our tour their strategic partnership for the formation of a new naval architecture and engineering company named Lateral Naval Architects Ltd. Lateral will provide high quality naval architecture and engineering services to the industry as well as collaborating with the shipyard’s own engineering team and network of co-makers and subcontractors.

Š Oceanco


Oceanco first engaged BMT in 2008 to begin development of yachts in the 100m + category. The intervening years have seen the companies collaborate on several ground-breaking and award-winning projects such as the 92m Equanimity, 86m Aquijo (opposite page), 110m Jubilee, and most recently, the technically innovative 107m Black Pearl, delivered in March of this year. The intensely anticipated 109m project Y718 "Bravo" will be the next to launch and will feature several technical innovations developed by the Lateral and Oceanco teams. The 90-metre Oceanco superyacht "Project Shark" (on this page) is another impressive construction of four decks, built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, featuring the interiors by Nuvolari Lenard and exterior styling by Miamibased designer Luiz de Basto. Her sea trials were completed last spring off the coast of the Netherlands and now the yacht is almost ready to be delivered to her owner in time for the Mediterranean summer season.

Š Oceanco

Besides these three new yachts currently under construction - a 90m project designed by Espen Ă˜ino, the yard announced three more projects over 100 metres. Among them, a 125m yacht, which once delivered will be the largest yacht ever built in the Netherlands.

CAPTION


ROYAL HUISMAN Last spring Royal Huisman reached another milestone in its history, turning its largest hull ever at its shipyard’s facilities in Vollenhove. The hull of the three-masted schooner under construction since June 2017, has an impressive length of 81m and a sturdy plumb bow - making her not only powerful but recognizable all over the world. Built for an Asian client, Project 400 - currently the largest Royal Huisman to date - will be one of the ten world's largest sailing yachts.

WAJER YACHTS During our tour Wajer Yachts presented its latest motoryacht - Wajer 55 S - a model with the S-Factor. This sportier version of the flagship Wajer 55, is based upon a centre console concept. It has the same hull as the Wajer 55, but with a completely different deck layout, which gives the boat an even more dynamic look and room for all kinds of watersport toys. This combination of sportiness, luxury and comfort is why Wajer is calling the new model a Sports Utility Yacht.

Š Wajer Yachts


HEESEN

The visit at the Heesen Yachts' yard in Oss was something completly unexpected for the group of journalists. Can you find a better way to test the efficiency of the Fast Displacement Hull of the 70m Galactica Super Nova, than to compete in an unconventional hull racing on board its 3d scale model? Done it! (Visit our social media). During the press meeting, the yards presented its fleet of new constructions: 3 new 50m projects (Aster, Triton and Electra) and one 55m named Project Castor.

In this page, an image of Project Electra (Hull type: Fast Displacement Hull Form, FDHF). The model is the second 50-metre yacht designed by Omega Architects with hybrid propulsion.


MOONEN Launched in June, the new 36m M/Y Brigadoon, from the Moonen Martinique line, marks a new era for the Dutch yachtbuilder, being the first one to feature a hull made of high-tensile steel, which allows the yacht to go anywhere. Designed by RenĂŠ van der Velden, Brigadoon will make its public debut at the Cannes and Monaco boat shows in September, while construction of her sistership has just started with delivery scheduled for early 2020.

M/Y IRISHA

CARTE BLANCHE TO THE DESIGNERS THE RESULT IS THE CREATION OF A RADICAL PROFILE WITH THE HULL COLOUR CHANGING IN SUNLIGHT FROM METALLIC BLUE TO DARK OLIVE GREEN HUES.

D

elivered in May 2018 Irisha is a semidisplacement yacht with a truly unique design which goes way beyond the boundaries of anything the Dutch yard Heesen Yachts has built before. The 51-metre full-custom motor yacht Irisha, a full-aluminium, semi-displacement motor yacht below the 500GT threshold, was sold by SuperYachtsMonaco who represented the commercial interest of the owner throughout the build. Constructed by the dedicated team of craftsmen and builders at Heesen’s Oss yard in the Netherlands, Irisha combines state-of-theart design with impeccable Dutch craftmanship to create the ultimate modern charter yacht, accomodating ten guests and nine crew.

She features an eye-catching exterior designed by the UK-based Harrison Eidsgaard studio, also responbile for the interiors.

The owner’s brief called for a yacht that had to be unique in its looks. The proven engineering platform of the 5000 Aluminium class offered the perfect opportunity to give carte blanche to the designers to create a radical profile and to deliver the safety of a proven and efficient hardchine hull. Powered by twin diesel engines and capable of an impressive top speed of 25 knots, Irisha has a transatlantic range of over 3,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 11 knots.

The Harrison Eidsgaard team devised innovative exterior lines enhanced by the extensive use of double curved glazed glass that gives the yacht the appearance of a fighter jet. Irisha’s profile looks as cool at night as in the daylight. The unique colour scheme enriches the beauty of the profile: the top is Snow White, the main deck is Midnight Blue by Awlgrip, and the hull is metallic Pacific Blue custom paint by Alexseal. In sunlight, the hull colour changes from metallic blue to dark olive-green hues. Concealed LED strips trace the lines of her profile, flooding the glass surfaces with light, and emphasising the clean design.

Irisha is available for charter in the Mediterranean with SuperYachtsMonaco and will make her official début at the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2018

The interior design is inviting and relaxing with a neutral palette of beige, grey and blue. Walls and surfaces are covered with textured materials that catch and reflect the light in different ways creating a sense of warm luxury throughout the yacht.

The architecture of the interior is emphasised by the accurate light design. Four different settings are conceived to draw the eye to the architectural and design elements, harmonising the design of each room, and creating different atmospheres at the touch of a button.

THE STAIRCASE IN THE GRANDIOSE ATRIUM FEATURING CURVED GLASS AND DKT CUSTOM ARTWORK PANELS IS THE ARCHITECTURAL MASTERPIECE ON BOARD IRISHA. THE DOUBLE CURVED STAIRCASE IS NOT ONLY A BEAUTIFUL DESIGN FEATURE, BUT ALSO A CLEVERLY ENGINEERED PIECE OF ART THAT CONNECTS THE THREE DECKS.

VERSATILE ATMOSPHERE The interior layout offers a high degree of versatility and is conceived to meet the need for formal and large receptions, as well as intimate areas for the daily family life on board. The main deck is dedicated to the formal reception and is characterised by a connection between indoor and outdoor. Sliding glass doors protect the aft deck which becomes a "winter garden". Once the doors between the ‘winter garden’ and the dining saloon are open, guests can enjoy a stunning 8-metre long saloon, ideal for formal banquets thanks to an extendable imperial dining table that seats from 14 up to an impressive 22 guests.

Set forward on the main deck, the owner’s stateroom is accessed via the private study furnished with an exquisite cantilevered, custom-designed desk. Plenty of natural light floods the work space thanks to two large windows. A French balcony with sliding glass doors draws fresh air into the bedroom. The bedhead is a hand-felted silk artwork by Claudy Jongstra. His and hers walk-in dressing rooms with wash basins lead into the shared bathroom, with a central freestanding wengé bathtub and double therapy shower. The guest suites are located on the lower deck. Two doubles and two twins (convertible into a double): the twin rooms, thanks to a sliding partition, can be transformed into a full-beam VIP suite with double bed and sofa corner.

The upper deck features floor-to-ceiling structural glass that allows plenty of natural light to flood the interior. The sky lounge is equipped with a cinema screen and projector located opposite the U-shaped lounge sofa and armchairs and is served by a wet bar. A built-in lounge chair next to the large window is the perfect spot for reading and relaxing with breathtaking views. The "pièce de résistance" is without doubt the raised pilot house whose futuristic design gives the cockpit the look of a fighter jet. The floating console and seats with carbonfibre backrests catch the eye in this ultra-contemporary space.

The 13-metre long sun deck boasts a sunbathing area aft of the hot tub and an adjacent seating area with an adjustable dining table for informal dining, while forward there is a bar with high stools (serviced by a dumb waiter). Forward on the main deck, a built-in settee is protected by a hydraulically driven canopy that creates a windsheltered outdoor space ideal for relaxing in privacy. More forward, in the bow a second seating area is the ideal place for admiring the views. A wellness area, complete with sauna and massage table is located in the beach club.

Design opens the doors to a new world by PAMELA PACI

AT THE MILAN DESIGN WEEKS DESIGN BRANDS OFFERED NEW VISIONS, NEW FEELINGS THROUGH EXPERIMENTATION AND ART FORMS FERRAGAMO | Foggini

MOROSO | Bethan

RUBELLI | Celestino

During FuoriSalone 2018, Ferragamo Parfums and Jacopo Foggini presented Limbo, a sitespecific installation - a sensory cloud - to cover, discover, remember.

Bethan Laura Wood, the popular London-based product designer, artist and creative thinker, has collected ‘public patterns’ since the beginning of her career, by walking and exploring. She is continually learning from the environment around her. This physical absorption allows her to build an archive of colours and textures from the urban cityscape. She combines these shapes and colours into the starting point for many of her contemporary works.

Cristina Celestino chose to reinterpret the historic streetcars of the city, imagining an ideal “Cinema Corallo” circulating in the Brera district. Corallo is an unexpected and evocative place on rails, an authentic travelling salon inside a historic tram from 1928. The project is inspired by the theme of the journey, as an experience with dream and surreal overtones, that the designer carries within a d’antan cinema set up.

Limbo is an aerial labyrinth made of polycarbonate thread modules that hang from a wooden structure built in the upper loggia of the Ca' Granda's Corte d'Onore, at the Milan Università degli Studi. It is a way to physically represent the fragrance Amo Ferragamo's multi-sensorial experience: polychrome and of great purity, Foggini's installation amplifies in an immersive environment the essence of a muffled, soffused world, like a limbo of clouds between sky and earth, through which the landscape is slowly taking shape inside your mind. The artist's synesthetic journey is 30 metres long, and is made of seven consecutive portals. The whole forms a cloud in which senses are awakened, or where it is possible to get lost watching the lights which cast shadows on the walls and ceiling through the structure, giving to visitors the space and time to discover the world of Amo Ferragamo.

Bethan’s trips to Mexico were her first taste of Latin America’s hot palette of colour and pattern; that sensory experience distilled into an obsession with the stained-glass windows of the New Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City.

As a conduit for exploring this new palette, Bethan’s interpretation of this amazing building has led to a series of works that subtly reference the craft of embroidery from traditional Otomi textiles. For this presentation in Moroso’s showroom, Bethan has shared her personal obsessions with the skilled team from Limonta, using a variety of textile processes and applications to explore the crossover between hand-craft and mass-production. 129

This project of totally tailor-made interior design, that makes us travel in space and time, reflects the designer’s aesthetic, where precious materials and references to the past, contemporary intuitions and visionary spirit are harmoniously combined.

Inside, the division into two zones creates two specific moments, recurring situations in theaters and cinemas. The foyer, seen as the main volume, mimics a soft, enveloping waiting room, featuring rigorous settees, windows screened by abundant Rubelli drapes visible from the outside, and soft inlaid carpeting.

Placca When design brings us back to the primordial language Placca速, brand of the Italian design company Epic, has reinterpreted over the years, giving a new know-how, a kind of product that for the most demanding clients becomes a design element with the distinctive function of the spaces: the switch plates. The constant research, the study of the product and the use of selected materials allow all Placca速 products to be at the cutting edge of design.

The customization of each product makes the brand unique, involving the client as a designer of the brand and making the product a co-protagonist of the environment where it is integrated. Among the six collections of switch plates by Placca速, Neo is the most distinguishable one. Enrico Corelli, CEO and designer of the company, inspired by the essentiality of Architect Mies van der Rohe, eliminates every excessive element, leaving - and thus enhancing - only the necessary. In this case, the button.

Included in the ADI DESIGN INDEX 2013 and nominated for the ICONIC AWARD 2016: AWARD INNOVATION, Neo is available in two versions, wired and wireless, in two sizes with diameters of 20 mm and 29 mm and in three different thick sizes, 1, 5 and 10mm.

Since 2018 the NEO collection has evolved in two wireless models, Neo Lighter and Neo Q. Placca速 echoes the primordial language - the gesture - making the remote light control possible in just 4 actions, as easy and immediate as a click: right rotation, left rotation and the shake. Beyond gestures, Epic's portable systems restore the importance of the sense of touch through the use of shapes and materials which are studied to create a synergy between man and object. plhitalia.com

T

he success of the Custom Line Navetta 33 can also be found in the new shopping habits of the new generation, the so-called Millennials, whose basic instinct in personalizing every purchase and living any choice as ultimate experience is definitely changing the buying landscape.

Navetta 33 is a compact megayacht built by Ferretti Group under the brand Custom Line, that despite being a serial construction, allows the owners to be protagonist in a long series of choices, not only for the interiors.

As a matter of fact, the Navetta Series, now available on the market as Navetta 28, 33, 37, 42, has always been characterized by a specific DNA where creativity and innovation are the very first elements. The creative wave of the Navetta generation continues and the market reacts positively.

Premièred in Ibiza last summer, Navetta 33 had already conquered the markets with 5 units sold even before its début. As the other models, Navetta 33 is the result of the joint efforts of the Product Strategy Committee headed by Piero Ferrari, together with the Group’s Engineering Department, whose architects and designers worked on the interior design, and Studio Zuccon International Project for the exterior design.

The hull of the Navetta 33, designed from the ground up and developed using CFD analysis, features a bulbous forward to ensure performance at the top of its class in terms of seaworthiness, stability and, most of all, efficiency in any seas. At economical cruising speed, it has a range of up to 1,850 nautical miles. Navetta 33 is equipped with twin MAN engines, providing 1,400 MHP. Two more powerful engine assemblies are also available. This variety of choices offers even further proof of the Navetta 33’s 100% “custom” nature, which offers each Owner not only the opportunity to personalise the outfitting of the interior, but also the chance to choose the engine assembly most suited to the yacht's intended use: whether the ideal setup for covering long distances with very low fuel consumption or for enjoying performance at the top of its class. 151

The yacht offers fabulous spaces to owners and their guests across all four decks: from the wide body Master Suite forward on the main deck to the four guest cabins on the lower deck. Thanks to the exterior panoramic terrace on the starboard side of the main deck and the magnificent opening windows on the stern side of the upper deck, the lounge areas and the interior and exterior dining areas are spacious and bright. The sun deck, with its whirlpool tub and large sun pad, is designed to provide moments of total privacy.

The Navetta 33 is equipped with the patented DMT system, which, thanks to the dual movement mechanism of the garage door, transforms the vessel’s stern into a uniquely spacious beach club. Videoworks VOTIS software, which ensures extremely reliable, flexible and practical management of all of the on-board infotainment systems, is joined by a Kerio network management system, thanks to which it is possible to have two independent Wi-Fi networks,

one for the owner and one for the crew or, alternatively, to double the available bandwidth, ensuring excellent connectivity in any conditions.

The first Navetta 33 was equipped with an enhanced audio/video system, specially created upon the owner's request: the system for the outdoor areas was provided by and jointly developed with James Loudspeaker, who cooperated with Custom Line engineers on its design and installation. The yacht’s interior areas also enjoy top sound quality, thanks to the custom KArray systems in the main and upper deck lounges and the Sonance systems in the cabins. Absolute comfort is also guaranteed in terms of stabilisation when at anchor and when mooring, thanks to electro-hydraulic stabilising fins with zero speed mode, in addition to two Seakeeper gyroscopic stabilisers.

STYLE AND DÉCOR

(ON BOARD THE FIRST NAVETTA 33)

Sophisticated and meticulous elegance, modulated by the interplay of different materials, characterises the design of the interior, whose structural décor – ceiling panels and bulkheads in particular – proceeds according to an orderly pattern of geometric lines, establishing an attractive and contemporary dialogue of style between the built-in fittings and the furnishings, which are an expression of the best in Italian design.

The on-board spaces are enhanced by large windows on all decks. Natural light floods the yacht’s indoor areas, where natural black walnut veneer is complemented by whitened parquet flooring – in the daytime areas and the Master Suite – and by numerous leather accents by Poltrona Frau – clay-coloured on the main and upper decks and cream below decks – among which stand out the leather-upholstered columns along the bulwark, where the curtain retainers are located.

Jerusalem marble is the dominant material in the Master bathroom and it is also used in the décor of the guest bathrooms. MAIN DECK | The cockpit is furnished with a long sofa, upholstered in fabric by Mariaflora, with a backrest that

can be moved aft, four Portofino-model outdoor chairs in concrete-grey shade and two Giromodel side tables, all by Paola Lenti. The elegant main lounge is separated from the exterior by a glass door of approximately 4 sq. m, shielded by a large curtain by Zimmer&Rohde. The Master Suite is entered through a study situated along the bulwark by a concealed window, granting the owner the luxury of feeling even closer to the sea. Beyond this area, a mirrored sliding panel opens to reveal a large walk-in closet with black lacquered walls, graphitecoloured parquet flooring and furnishings with a wood veneer. A second closet is located to the left side of the bed. LOWER DECK | The lower deck is home to the four guest cabins and, in the forward section, the crew area.

THE UPPER DECK | The upper deck is reserved for the relaxation of the owner and his guests, in addition to ensuring suitable comfort for the captain, who can rest in his reserved cabin behind the helm station. SUN DECK | The sun deck offers unprecedented space for a yacht of this size. The décor, which is almost entirely free-standing, is by Paola Lenti. 154

FAMILY PORTRAIT ON BOARD M/Y BINA

BINA IS A PLACE TO RELAX, A PLACE TO GATHER, TO CELEBRATE AND CREATE MEMORIES. FOR THE OWNERS OF THIS 43M SUPERYACHT, BINA IS A FAMILY AFFAIR AND THE PLACE WHERE THEY MOST ENJOY BEING TOGETHER.

M

/Y Bina is the realisation of a family dream. It is the result of sacrifices, hard work and ambition by a family who was not born in luxury but who, thanks to their great conviction and great dedication to the business, could achieve success and afford the purchase of a 43m megayacht.

Today Sabina and Roy Nasser are happy to share the story of their family and open the doors of their luxury floating dream, a steel and aluminium construction by Mondomarine, built in 2006 and completely refitted in 2015. A 43m superyacht able to accommodate up to twelve guests in five luxurious cabins, Bina, available for charter, represents the perfect yacht experience, conceived as a modern colonial beach house in terms of style and equipped with a plethora of contemporary amenities for all kinds of entertainment. We stepped aboard Bina to discuss family ownership and which Mediterranean hot spots you’ll find them in this summer. 157

FROM DREAM TO REALITY

Courtesy of Sabina and Roy Nasser

Q: Can you tell us how your yacht ownership began? What has been your experience? A: Life at sea has been a lifelong dream of my father's. But starting his own business in Brazil from our kitchen table with a baby in the house 37 years ago, it really was only a dream. Thankfully for us, this dream never died and many years later my dad purchased our first family boat - a 43 foot Ferretti. As time went by, the whole family caught the boating-bug, and we started looking for bigger challenges. Most recent was the purchase and refit of Bina our 43 meter Mondomarine. Yachting for us is truly a family affair. Q: As brother and sister, how do you manage your vacations on board? Do you spend your holidays together?

A: We do both - since our family is scattered around the globe, time on board is time that we get to spend together in the most beautiful settings so it's precious for us! But sometimes Roy will have a week with his guys and I will get a week with my girlfriends somewhere. Q: What is the perfect way to spend your time on board?

159

A: My favorite thing is to catch up with old friends - we love having guests on board! I love tasting the amazing cocktail concoctions our crew dreams up and the fresh delicious food our chef prepares.

Q: What would you suggest today to those who are going to buy a yacht of this size for the first time? What are the first things to think about in practical terms regarding the actual purchase, and also in terms of livability, with regard to the organisation of spaces? A: With the limited space, organisation if key - if the is a nook for an extra closet or compartment, put it in! Also, a yacht is costly and a lot of work, make sure you love it... but if you do, buying a yacht is the best thing you'll ever do! Q: How will you spend this summer’s holidays? What are your favourite destinations?

A: We will be all together with family and friends in the Med. We also have quite a few charters booked this summer so we will work our vacation time around those bookings. My favorite spots are in the South of France and the Amalfi Coast... Greece and Croatia are also so stunning! Q: Are you thinking about a new or larger yacht? What’s your next dream?

A: We always talk about that... what's next? At this point we are still enjoying Bina so much, she has truly become our home at sea so we are not ready to let her go... but never say never!

PILATUS PC-24

A SUPER VERSATILE JET PETER BRABECK-LETMATHE, ONE OF THE VERY FIRST OWNERS TO FLY THE BRAND-NEW SWISS BUSINESS JET.

P

eter Brabeck-Letmathe, former Chairman and CEO of the Nestlé Group, accepted the keys to his PC-24, serial number 104. Peter BrabeckLetmathe is one of the very first owners to fly the brand-new Swiss business jet. Businessman and experienced pilot Peter Brabeck-Letmathe personally took delivery of his PC-24, ordered in 2013, from Oscar J. Schwenk, Chairman of Pilatus, at a handover ceremony in Stans. Flying is his big passion – he has logged over 3000 hours so far. Brabeck-Letmathe attracted attention a year ago with the announcement that his new PC-24 would be purchased by his company, Brabair, and would be made available to private and business travellers in Europe, together with his existing PC-12 NG, within a newly founded “Flying Club 24”.

Peter Brabeck-Letmathe commented as follows at the handover: “It’s been worth the wait, my serial number 104 looks just fantastic! I’ve been totally convinced by the PC-24 project since the earliest days. It’s a logical continuation of the Pilatus product family. The cockpit environment is exceptional within this category and the quality of the workmanship is exactly as one would expect from a Swiss product. I’m really looking forward to taking the pilot’s seat and getting familiar with the unique capabilities of my Super Versatile Jet”.

The PC-24 will be based in Sion. The Brabair Super Versatile Jet will carry seven passengers plus pilot in a luxurious, ergonomic environment. The large cargo door which comes as standard allows easy loading and unloading of large items of luggage and bulky cargo. The PC-24’s short takeoff and landing capabilities also open up new possibilities in terms of arriving closer to the final destination, thereby saving valuable time.

FLYING IS HIS BIG PASSION

Oscar J. Schwenk commented on Peter Brabeck’s PC-24 as follows: “I’m delighted that such wellknown personalities are happy to place their trust in our aircraft. Peter Brabeck-Letmathe has flown our single-engine PC-12 NG for a long time and will now operate a PC-24 in parallel. The fact that he opted for a brand-new, very recently certified PC24 speaks for itself. I’m confident that he will be as happy with the PC-24 as we are. I look forward to receiving his feedback! ” Founded in 1939 and domiciled in Stans, Pilatus Aircraft Ltd - is the only Swiss company to develop, produce and sell aircraft to customers around the world: from the legendary Pilatus Porter PC-6 to the best-selling singleengine turboprop in its class, the PC-12, and the PC-21, the training system of the future. The latest development is the PC-24 – the world’s first ever business jet for use on short unprepared runways. With over 2,000 employees at its headquarters, Pilatus is one of the largest employers in Central Switzerland.
