At The Backstage of Luxury Yacht Interiors
They create a unique approach to craftsmanship and redefine luxury engineering. They provide yacht interior designers with freedom and flexibility. They deliver a certain lifestyle to the yacht Owners. They present art objects that equilibrate with the life of the yacht interior surrounding. Meet WEDENSTEIN - Austrian Craftsmen, Engineers, Artists.
WORKS OF ART AS THE LIVING ORGANISM
WEDENSTEIN – the scope of their expertise include: special surfaces and special constructions for superyachts, fine cars and residential projects.
True love for what you do knows no boundaries and no measures – WEDENSTEIN and their art can infiltrate all the way through artisan, resin and liquid metal surfaces, luxury furniture, trims and accessories, artworks, handrails, upholstery – finishing up on 2D and 3D drawing engineering solutions. They create a distinctive manner of living to customers who identify with their innovative and “original brand without origins”.
EXPERIMENTS AS A TRUE METHOD OF KNOWLEDGE
They love combining unusual materials. Would you think that copper and carbon fiber or Scottish square fabric under lacquer and gold leaf wouldn’t go well together? Burlwood with gold, copper with lacquer, hand-stitched leather and alcantara – the list is long. WEDENSTEIN’s doctrine is: “In Art, practice comes before theory”.
PROJECTING TRENDS: OLD IDEAS IN THE FACE OF THE NEW OPPORTUNITIES
Fitting tons of bronze in superyachts is a rising market. WEDENSTEIN, using an advanced technology, is currently manufacturing about three thousand parts for an 80m superyacht project, collaborating with a renowned company in UK to extract the best that bronze has to offer: silent glamour blended with elegance.
Yacht Interior Designers love the aged look on metal parts, combined with stiff vintage leather that introduces a heavily sophisticated atmosphere. How to pull of the “romance” and charm of antiquity? If you dare to ask WEDENSTEIN, that means you are not afraid of making progress.
3. RESIN SURFACES
Three-dimensional surfaces with optical depth are elaborated the way to break with square interior routine, to add personal flair to yacht interior design and to help transform the luxury space into a “complex simplicity” of artistry. There can be created countless objects within the surface like real clover leaves, feathers of rare birds (collected around a mountain lake), or tunnels of pure gold. The surface experts at WEDENSTEIN also create faux-marbles and faux-stones, giving designers the freedom to decide on a unique specialty finish.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT IN MATERIAL SCIENCE
The creation journey is followed by in-house and external meetings with customers to discuss design challenges and quality improvement. The trips to shipyards, in turn, are to supervise the refit projects ensuring top standards and delivering, without dispute, one of the highest forms of artistic progress for yacht interiors. WEDENSTEIN processes about 1000 samples per year to develop new optical highlights, but also to develop new materials with chemical producers. Many commodity materials are manufactured exclusively for the company.
Diversity of imagination, emotional intelligence and passion for work are anchored at the base of the WEDENSTEIN’s beliefs. The final result is not limited to their talent as skilled artisans but it is also a consequence of the capacities of “mental powers” where art has its origins.
