Bianca: Reflected Landscapes
Interior and Exterior design for a 60 m long cruise boat in Japan. Upon entering the new Bianca, travelers are immersed in landscapes of light, color and infinite views on the surrounding nature. Floors and ceilings, along with the outside panoramas, act as internal “Second Natures” able to create elongated perspective where extraordinary lands of colorful waters and skies meet. Similar to gardens the wrapping surfaces of Bianca create an idealized landscape that fluctuates between the abstract and pictorial. At each floor of the boat, travelers experience a unique view on the surrounding horizon. Named after the different time of the day (sunset, sunrise, midday…etc), the various spaces offer a continuous pictorial experience of nature.
