design et al are delighted to announce shortlist success for Haak interior design of excellence in the International Yacht & Aviation Awards 2015. The Munich-based design firm, founded by Kathrin Haak will compete in the Yacht Concept up to 40m category.
This 12m motor yacht features interior design from by Haak interior design of excellence and exterior design by Fuhrmann & Ochoa Hamburg.
The interior space is conceived of 8 persons with 3 double cabins in the middle and front of the yacht (both cabins can be changed for lounge expansion) with 2 bathrooms and shower. At the back of the yacht there is an excellent sized kitchen area with lounge and dinner area opposite.
The interior represents waves and the organic forms of the ocean and flow throughout the body of the boat. The sundeck features a bar and lounge area as well as a washing room. The interior elements and furniture comes with warm and natural colours.
The style of the whole interior architecture is characterised by curves and wave shapes. The interior aesthetic therefore reflects the basic shape of all yachts. “Conventional straight lines, corners and edges are avoided where possible. This enables the dynamic lines of the exterior surface to flow straight to the heart of the boat – a perfect symbiosis between interior and exterior”, explains Kathrin Haak.
As one of the few women in Germany to have made a name for herself in this male-dominated industry, Haak has set herself the task of setting new standards with her designs.
