Visionnaire together with Baglietto
Visionnaire together with Baglietto
Designing a “culture of habitation” and a “culture of living” is Visionnaire’s corporate mission. Providing living spaces with an absolute environmental quality, using objects able to generate intangible images and tangible uses. It is in this perspective that our bespoke projects originate, not only linked to prestigious private and public living spaces on dry land, but also to unique homes on water, like a luxury yacht. And this was the spirit of the project launched as an absolute preview at the Monaco Boat Show during the Baglietto press conference held at Monte Carlo Bay Hotel on 26 September, was conceived.
“In our recent experience in the field of boats,” comments Eleonore Cavalli, Visionnaire Art Director, “we have observed a growing demand by our customers to recreate home interiors in their yachts. The desire to live their lives both on board and at home with the same level of everyday comfort and wellbeing is certainly the aspect that has brought these two worlds into contact. It was with this spirit that we developed the 48 m T-line Motor Yacht interior design project for Baglietto boat builders.”
The project by the Visionnaire style office
The concept focusses on configuration of some spaces, striving to make the interior/exterior areas and the designs for them comfortable and practical, from choice of the appropriate furnishings to the finishes of each space.
More specifically, our designs concerned the following areas:
- On the main deck: living area; dining area; owner’s bedroom; owner’s bathroom
- On the upper deck: outdoor area and home theatre
- On the lower deck: study of 3 VIP cabins
The interiors are in simple, clean and contemporary style, but at the same time show a strong personality in the use of colour contrasts in the upholstery of the furnishings and in the fixed elements of the fittings, such as the dark délabré brass suspended ceiling and the light-coloured wood flooring. There is a sense of continuous and fluid spaciousness, which totally changes the concept of rigid distribution of spaces, as well as a clear desire to create a strong connection between the interior and exterior, by means of a central view onto the external sofa area.
The living and dining areas make use of soft and neutral shades like the pearl colour of the sofas and the polychrome grey of our Revenge table. The only contrasting element is the teal velvet used to upholster the chairs and for the cushions. The owner’s cabin offers the same contemporary atmospheres as the living area: the furniture was chosen from the most recent collections; our Emotion headboard in this case has been redesigned with an ad hoc customisation repeated over the whole surface. Fabric wallpaper matching the furnishings are used on the walls.
In the VIP cabins, three different models of bed were chosen: Ripley, Perkins and Beloved, here too designed and adapted to the differing shapes of the cabins. In this case, on the walls we used wood and/or marble panels and fabric wallpaper in differing colours to distinguish between the cabins giving each one a distinct identity.
The area set aside for the home theatre is particularly fascinating because it is totally open to the surrounding view. It is furnished with our modular Anthem sofa which occupies the whole perimeter of the area while leaving, in this case too, a clear view of the Upper deck exterior. The exterior features our oval Solstice table with a marble top and large enough to seat 10/11 people, an area with Palm Beach corner sofas and related coffee tables, and an area with a Serendipity bar unit.
“We are very proud to be able to work, and in perfect synergy, with a company like Baglietto who have such extensive know-how,” concludes Andrea Gentilini, CEO of Visionnaire. “It has been an important project which, while on the one hand confirming the long-standing bespoke capacity of the Visionnaire Brand, together with the excellence of our typically Italian savoir faire, on the other it also shows our natural passion for design and our penchant for putting ourselves to the test with to other operations in the luxury sector.”
