Sanlorenzo 112 gets nominated for Boat International Design and Innovation Awards

Envisioned in a soothing palettes of neutrals , this tranquil decor embraces the streamlined modernism of the Sanlorenzo yacht. The contemporary lines of the yacht have been lightened with textural natural materials and an organic sensibility in the edited, refined signature style of the designer as evidenced in the unique interplay of illusion s creating an interesting drama as one moves thru the yacht. Exotic , tactile materials such as smoked textured oak and laser cut leathers are contrasted with the sleekness and reflective properties of glossy lacquers against matte stainless steel trim work .
The center circular staircase is a sculptural element inspired by the spiral geometry found in the Fibonacci sequence . Flanking the staircase are extraordinary panels that have been carved from natural stone into modular design textures with integrated light sconces .
The 112 Sanlorenzo is a richly serene decor defined by natural elements and a light filled palette where the simplicity of the sea was the inspiration with minimalistic furniture shapes paired with bright modern colors and textured linens.

Uber Modern 88 coming to Miami 2018

 

With its refined mix of relaxed comfort and industrial conceptualism, the 88 captures the lifestyle of a creative, contemporary sophisticate.

Once again, the designer cleverly layers unique and innovative materials to create the concept of an open, light filled “loft” while cruising on the sea with 

jaw dropping salon windows and a central floating staircase. 

Creative use of stone was explored with surfaces of lavastone from the active Mt Etna. The master head wall creates a striking pattern by adding black metal rods to the honed white stone

The pattern of the white French oak floor was inspired by the shape of a tree when looking up.

The joiner style was inspired by a Mondrian painting with its linear precision combining industrial mesh sandwiched between glass and mirror which is enhanced by edgy graphite metalwork. Each bulkhead was designed to be a work of art. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long leisurely meals on the aft deck while overlooking a beach club filled with water toys and lounge chairs that cleverly convert to water floats intentionally blur the line between indoors and outdoors.

 

New 112 Sanlorenzo completes/ coming to FLIBS 2017

Inspired by the uber chic island of St Barths, the interior design of the 112 is a nod to the laid-back vibe of this sophisticated island.

 

White sandy beaches, tranquil water and cool blue skies set the tone for the color scheme.  Volumes of crisp pressed cottons, bleached wood, distressed floors and classic cool seersucker are used to deftly blend the texture of the beachfront with the changing light using natural materials such as stone and wood.

A few highlights: the tri deck circular staircase was completely cladded in stacked pebbles. The designer commissioned an organic cocktail table made from reclaimed teak that had been left to bake in the sun and sea salt air for more than a year to achieve the unique white washed finish.  The table was then infused with an icy blue resin that was cracked to achieve a unique quartz crystal effect.  Each element of this décor was carefully selected to promote ease and relaxation.

 

The final result of the details evokes imagery of the white sand beaches and brilliant blue/aqua waters of the famous French Caribbean Island.
