Superyacht Design Week 18 - 20 June: A meeting of maritime minds at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour

You only need to look at high profile yachts like Venus or the recently launched
180m Project Azzam to see that the world of yacht design is exciting and unlike
any other realm of architecture or design. In the first event of its kind, running 18
to 20 June 2013, in partnership with Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour,
SuperyachtDESIGN Week will bring together the influential and innovative design
minds and suppliers behind these floating palaces.
The calendar is already saturated with superyacht conferences, boat shows,
awards ceremonies and symposiums, so this will be none of the above. Nor will it
be an egotistical display of wealth and excess. SuperyachtDESIGN Week will
instead be a celebration of yacht design. Spread over three days, the event will
feature discussions, scheduled meetings, workshops and demonstrations on all
aspects of superyacht design, with some of the industry’s top names. Confirmed
speakers include Terence Disdale, Ed Dubois, Jonny Horsfield, Richard Liebowitz,
Espen Oeino, John Leonida, Martin Francis, Marnix Hoekstra, Mariacristina
Rapisardi, Elena Cristofori and Rob Doyle.
A keynote speech entitled ‘Rough Luxe’ will come from internationally acclaimed
architect and designer Rabih Hage, the award-winning mind behind some of the
most exciting residential and hotel designs around the world as well as exclusive
interiors and unique furniture design. A second keynote address will ask ‘what
needs to change?’ Led by Vripack’s Marnix Hoekstra, it will be a fluid debate on the
main areas that need to change in the serious world of design, architecture and
creativity.
Exploring everything from space planning, glass, interior construction, crew space,
AV and more, SuperyachtDESIGN Week will be the perfect opportunity for
designers to not only explore what the future holds, but to exchange ideas and
innovations that can advance the lifestyle of the world’s most discerning clients.
