The Superyacht for Blohm+Voss design concept, launched at the latest exhibition of Zaha Hadid’s work at the David Gill Gallery in London, is based around the sculptural form of a master prototype conceived for a 128m yacht.
Zaha Hadid Architects design a limited-production vessel, Z Boat, for American art dealer Kenny Schachter.
“The asymmetrical design is sculptural in appearance while practically affording more seating accommodations. In a sense, the bespoke boat is as much a work of art as a Cisitalia sports car in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The idea is to think of vessels and vehicles as highly individualistic expressions of art, architecture and design reflecting the edge of what is possible using the most advanced means, including materials, software systems and methods of fabrication.
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.
