FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION | M/Y GRACE E AT MIAMI YACHT SHOW 2018
Nature is a driving force and a sort of projection of Rémi Tessier's vision of the interior space on M/Y Grace E. The final result seems to be based on three fundamental questions: how it looks, how it works, how it feels. What are the answers? The stylish interior designed to perfection, ample exterior, combination of comfort, simplicity and elegance. Is there anything else Luxury should be asking for?
Coming up on February 15-19 2018 – five big days in boating with the legendary Italian yacht builder Perini Navi - Picchiotti.
Visitors will experience access to the one of the most luxurious boat exhibition events in the world. The 30th annual Miami Yacht Show is to introduce a new look and layout in a very welcoming environment. One of the most prestigious participants - M/Y Grace E (built by Perini Navi - Picchiotti), will be on display.
A dream to have a "floating wellness center" to take care of the Guests turned into reality with the decision of expanding the yacht concept from 54 to 73 meter vessel and designing bigger interior and exterior space full of amenities. This includes a treatment room with hydrotherapy bath, steam and dry sauna, a well-equipped gym as well as sunbathing and yoga area outside.
Rémi Tessier - being in charge of the yacht interior design - admits that during material selection for Grace E, much consideration was given to its simplicity and compatibility with nature. M/Y Grace E is designed for function. Tessier uses the sandblasted, bleached and polished Sycamore wood (known to be highly resistant to decay), high-gloss ebony, and bleached wenge as the main types of wood on board. They are tailored to the vision of the Zen-like interior design, providing an open living space and giving more exposure to the natural light.
According to Burak Akgül - Chief Business Development Officer for Perini Navi - M/Y Grace E is an important stepping stone in Perini Navi-Picchiotti and Vitruvius innovative Naval Architecture. The cutting-edge design of Grace E explores new horizons in yachting industry that was remaining unknown until her launch.
The building team's dedication to think ahead of time and bold approach to yacht design takes M/Y Grace E to the high level of excellence. Apart from unique design solutions, "form follows function" philosophy also holds true and proofs to be a point of reference for Perini Navi vision of yachting.
