THE BEST YACHT INTERIOR DESIGN AS A BUSINESS OF TRUST
They say it's not talent as an independent element to decide about the success of yacht interior design but talent in relationship with "design ideas as an expression of purpose". The success of M/Y Irisha was to define and develop a solution for universal design that would be understood and used for a better quality of life.
After winning the award for the Best Interior Design at the World Yacht Trophies 2018 in Cannes, M/Y Irisha presented her dynamic exterior lines and fabulous interior space at the Monaco Yacht Show held from 26 to 29 September 2018.
The excellent choice of colors and materials of this 51-metre fully custom motor yacht carry the touch of Harrison Eidsgaard. Irisha's interior is the essence of modern design and a well-conceived concept that will forge an emotional connection with charter guests, creating an environment that "fills purpose".
The award winning interior areas were designed to evoke a sense of tranquility and quiet elegance. This is further enhanced by the use of neutral tones, the application of soft but precisely designed light sources, the sensibly luxurious furniture and even the gloss and matte material covering the walls.
The interior spaces can be used for hosting formal events while can easily serve as the cozy hideaway to clear your mind. The winter garden on the aft deck is a perfect example of the multi-purpose nature of most interior spaces providing another "avenue" for Owners and guests to feel close to nature and connect with the energy of the Ocean. Once the separator glass wall is removed, the garden becomes a part of the main dining area with an extendable dining table, large enough for up to 22 guests.
In case some private time is required, the owner’s stateroom with its quiet and – thanks to the large windows – well lit study provides the perfect space. The hand-felted silk bedhead in the master cabin created by Claudy Jongstra - a famous Dutch artist and textile designer - evokes a sense of casual and discrete luxury.
Another striking design element is the staircase connecting all three decks. Realizing this staircase with its organic shapes provided another unique challenge to tackle but once DKT Artworks has done their magic the staircase became recognizable and awe-inspiring feature among yacht interior designers.
Combining the exceptional visual language of Harrison Eidsgaard with the work of "creative minds and disciplined eyes" of the superb team involved in the project, Heesen Yachts added to their new addition to the fleet a perfect balance between form and function, creating a multi-layered relationship between human life and its water environment onboard the vessel.
M/Y Irisha is currently available for charter with SuperYachtsMonaco.
