Following the success of Gosling’s award-winning home cinema recently featured in The Sunday Times, Gosling Designer, Phil Sturdy has launched a carbon fibre media centre for superyachts. The striking design provides an integrated space with ‘cutting-edge technology with no compromise on comfort’.
The curved lines are designed to echo the seascape, creating a feeling of movement. Tim Gosling of Gosling Marine commented, “Architecture today is very fluid, three wonderful examples include, Zaha Hadid’s London Aquatics Centre, Richard Rogers’ Millennium Dome and Norman Foster’s The Sage in Gateshead. Furniture should be informed by the architecture and environment.
“Designing for superyachts gives us incredible freedom and Gosling’s pioneering use of carbon fibre enables us design and build extraordinary pieces. Our latest media centre provides innovative design with cutting edge technology with a fresh minimalist feel.”
Gosling Marine’s combination of carbon fibre and teak creates a tactile, light and contemporary feel for the interior or deck of superyachts. With an increasing number of superyacht builders and designers recognising the benefits of carbon fibre, the significance of light interior furniture is highlighted. Gosling reports a rise in enquiries from boat designers asking first about the weight of the Gosling Marine Collection.
Phil Sturdy commented, “I have used the wood as an ornament rather than for its structure. The strength of the desk is using the carbon fibre, the wood provides a natural tactile feel.”
The curved desk has integrated lighting underneath the centre section and ‘the perfect place for the Apple iPad Pro’. The integrated advanced technology includes charging, wireless phone system, a media centre, and microphone.
