Heesen Yachts entrusted Francesco Paszkowski Design to design the interior for its new 50 metre superyacht. This elegant modern design features two kinds of wood; ebony and whitened oak and a stylish lighting system which will characterise the interior of the yacht. The superyacht will provide accommodation in six double ensuite cabins including a VIP suite.
“In our opinion a consistent design in the interior decoration is of primary importance to mark the yacht” says Francesco Paszkowski. “Inhere an elegant contemporary style stands out everywhere onboard, in the living, in the cabins and in the bathrooms. Only two kinds of wood – ebony and whitened oak – were used and a linear geometric continuity was chosen for all the sofas - in the living, on the upper-deck and in the cabins - for furniture, wall panelling, chair shape and the large rectangular dining table”.
“In the design we showed to the boatyard every frill was avoided without designing a minimalist style. A sober style also allows some elements to be enhanced, for instance the art masterpieces – statues and pictures hanging on the walls - the owners would love and like to have onboard while cruising”. A pleasant atmosphere is created by colours, wood and the harmonius contrast between them. Ebony was choosen for parquet and furniture in the living and in the bathrooms, while whitened oak was used for the walls, thus enhancing the visual impression of space onboard.
Colours are also used as a decorative element: the cushions in dark tones contrast harmoniously with the light shades of the sofas. Finally, some decoration elements are transformed into functional ones such as on the upper-deck the wood walls separating the lounge area from the staircase become a decorative detail thanks to the shutter-style.
According to the contemporary design, lighting systems consist of spotlights in the ceilings.
“Working today for Heesen Yachts is especially important to me” – commented Paszkowski. The collaboration between Paszkowski and the Dutch boatyard dates back to the beginning of the Nineties, to the first years of a more than 20-year activity. In 1995-95 he worked with Heesen Yachts as he designed the exterior of Opus II, a 36-metre flybridge the Dutch boatyard had built for an Austrian owner. Just two years before Paszkowski had designed another yacht for same owner, the largest open ever built at that time – Opus 1, destined to show a new trend - and the very first yacht the Italian designed. The Austrian owner was very pleased with his second yacht also designed by Paszkowski and built by Heesen.
“The time I spent working at Heesen Yachts was fundamental for my activity development"– Paszkowski recals- "I was so lucky to work together with Frans Heesen and his team. I look on that as a privilege and I still have in my mind what I learnt".
