Bespoke furniture company Silverlining is presenting a collection of furniture pieces, showing radical departure from traditional preconceptions of what the luxury furniture on yachts should look like. The collection explores the relationship between design and craftsmanship in the 21st century, pushing the boundaries of engineering and furniture making and placing the experiences of a modern person at the centre of design. After official launch at the Monaco Yacht Show, the collection will be exhibited in London during the Frieze week in October. The collection consists of six pieces and includes tables, cabinets, seating and a desk.
In 2009 Silverlining approached four well-known boat designers – Bannenberg & Rowell Design, Eidsgaard Design, Michael Leach Design and Remi Tessier — with the idea of exploring the future of yacht interiors together. "We wanted to inspire the superyacht world and explore where the future of interiors is heading," says Mark Boddington, Silverlining's founder and director. "And we wanted to lead that change." Two years down the line and the first results of Silverlining’s progressive collaborations can already be seen onboard superyachts Palladium and Pacific, with more radical projects both on superyachts and on land currently being in production in the Silverlining workshops. Innovation is one of Silverlining’s core values and the team is constantly developing next level furniture ideas, putting the modern superyacht owner at the center of design.
Silverlining can be found at this year's Monaco Yacht Show at the Darse Nord airconditioned tent. Find them at QD3 next to the builders' gallery.
