design et al are delighted to announce that Misha Merzliakov Yacht Design have been shortlisted for the Interior Design – Power Yacht in The International Yacht & Aviation Awards 2019.
Whitehaven had an existing platform to apply a new design to and Misha Merzliakov Yacht Design offered an inspiring interior and exterior utilising the latest design trends in the superyacht market. This project saw Misha Merzliakov design custom furniture, light installations and execute playful solid surface geometry.
The Whitehaven Brand who specialise in the 60 – 80 ft range of yachts was looking to take their product offering to the next level. Misha Merzliakov Yacht Design’s brief was extremely clear. Impress the client and change the industries outlook on the 60-80ft yacht market. The client wanted to see how far Misha Merzliakov Yacht Design could take luxury.
The client’s willingness to take a leap of faith into the 6100 Coupe Euro Edition project was a key aspect of the design and the project as a whole. Their input was paramount in the success off the project and boundaries were pushed to the limit with this design. The other key aspect of the design was the use of integrated lighting. The photos do not convey the feeling each visitor gets when they enter the 6100 Coupe Euro Edition, visitors are totally immersed In the space when onboard. The consistent feedback is visitors don’t want to leave.
To truly appreciate the design, one must concentrate on the details. Backlit solid surfaces and sumptuous Italian leather fronted joinery is just some of the bespoke pieces you will find in the 6100 Coupe Euro Edition. Considerate quiet soft closing drawers and jewellery box wardrobes in the cabins. Custom light installations throughout the yacht immerse guests in secluded comfort. The well executed details create an inspiring space that is playful and engaging to the visitor.
