Andy Waugh Yacht Design: Epiphany

September 23, 2018,

The Elegance Of A Classic Design 

A 130meter super-yacht, Epiphany stands out with a unique silhouette inspired by a simplification of the classic yacht form and emphasized by bold graphics. The purity of the form is the result of simple sophistication, a concept derived from classic design.

The owner’s deck is vast, extending quite a bit further forward than on more conventional designs. The stateroom, a forward luxury cabin has an increased ceiling height with skylights and open views towards a private foredeck

Aft on this deck, there is a private cinema and an imposing office with adjacent space for personal assistants. Under the owner’s deck is a VIP terrace housing four, spacious premium cabins, each of which has a private balcony.
This terrace also has a cinema and game room in a large VIP salon, as well as a fully equipped fitness room and spa. The main bar principal opens on the aft deck, which features an open-air dining room. There are also another two VIP cabins on the deck and eight additional cabins.
On the lower deck, another cinema, dive center, and crew accommodations, with cabins that can accommodate up to 40 crew members and personnel.

Key points: The Epiphany concept utilizes the minimum of lines and structures to create an elegant effect, effect belying its practicality and large volumes of accommodation.

Plus: The main swimming pool is on the aft deck, and a large area that transforms to a heliport.

September 24, 2018 

A Sophisticated, Private Service

Ermenegildo Zegna has inaugurated its made-to-measure atelier right in the heart of Milan, providing a bespoke tailoring service for the luxury fashion house. This atelier is a unique place, a concept inspired by the idea of elegance: intimate and designed with a distinctly Milanese touch.

A special rendezvous for men who are invested in good taste and have the means to fill their closets in keeping with their lifestyle, their desires, and their needs. This service provides a complete made-to-measure wardrobe: from tailored suits and shirts to sportswear, by way of leather pieces, knitwear, and shoes, based on the client’s preferences. Each client has complete latitude to bring personal modifications to the characteristics of each item, as so desired. 

Every garment is made at the atelier, by hand, and with a passion for work well done. Lightness, attention to detail, extensibility, and suppleness are the key words that define the fabrication of these works of art, where savoir-faire and workmanship go hand-in-hand.

Each made-to-measure garment is created by and for the client. A bespoke suit requires 200 steps, during which time 150 pieces are assembled, representing as many as 75 hours of work. 

Key points: This new atelier offers an exclusive made-to-measure service elevated to the highest level of luxury. Impeccable cut and confection are guaranteed, with an expression of the very best in artisanal savoir-faire and a touch of modernity for such classic items of clothing.

Plus: The atelier evokes iconic references from the 1950s, the golden age of the city that recalls refinement and timelessness, and is accented with tributes to the architects that fashioned the public and private identity of modern Milan: Giò Ponti, Alberto Portaluppi, and Luigi Caccia Dominioni.

INTRIGUING DESIGN: TUHURA

August 30, 2018

A Totally Different Yacht Project 

Tuhura is a yacht in a category of its own, a real standout in the market. Its exterior style evokes the earliest canoes: pirogues and other boats used hundreds of years ago by native populations around the world. The Polynesians, in particular, were great explorers, covering thousands of miles across the Pacific Ocean in their outrigger canoes. The idea to revisit these early forms of navigation consists in reviving the spirit of exploration and discovery. In fact, the name of this yacht, Tuhura, is derived from the Maori verb to discover, bring to light unearth, open, explore, and investigate.

The main inspiration for the interior design comes from Eastern Asia and the islands of the Pacific. All of the systems onboard are intelligent: lighting, audio, video, temperature…

Key points: The design of Tuhura borrows the natural form of the earliest form of navigation: the canoe. The yacht is designed on a larger scale and features all of the latest technology.

Plus: The hull was created with multiple horizontal windows, using an advanced glass technology made up of a series of dots that stop prying eyes from looking in, but still allow guests on board to enjoy a seamless view out to sea, as if through a normal pane of glass. The windows appear to be the same color as the hull.

Characteristics: Length: 115m, draft (from waterline to bottom of hull): 3.9m, speed: 18 knots

Richard Mille: RM 53-01 Tourbillon Pablo Mac Donough

August 9, 2018

Don’t Be “Shocked”

The goal of the ultra-innovative RM 53-01: imagine a watch so extremely shock resistant it can support even the most violent impacts of a polo game, all the while revealing its movement. 

Richard Mille looked to the automobile industry to get its inspiration for high-tech laminated glass. In this case, a polyvinyl film is sandwiched between two sapphire glasses, marking a first in watch making. The glass might crack, but will not break. Anti-UV and anti-reflection treatment also protect the movement from the exterior environment, another exclusivity patented by Richard Mille.

With an innovative reinforced structure, the barrel-shaped case is made of Carbone TPT®, providing phenomenal resistance and making it virtually indestructible. The blend of undulated design and the sharp lines of the case add a sporty look to this cutting-edge timepiece.

Characteristics: Carbone TPT case, Sapphire glass laminated with anti-UV and anti-reflection treatment, tourbillon movement with manual winding, double base-plates (central and peripheral), base-plates and bridges in Grade 5 titanium.  

Limited edition of 30 watches in Carbone TPT®

Key points: Sporty and innovative, the RM 53-01 represents the “shock” of the encounter between Richard Mille and Pablo Mac Donough, one of the world’s best polo players.

Plus: The tourbillon movement is suspended by two braided steel cables to be ultra shock-resistant. The unusual architecture of this watch design called for the development of dual base-plates.
