This year’s SuperyachtDESIGN Week theme has been revealed! Guests will be immersed in the world of ‘Living Architecture’ throughout the event, held from 23 – 25 June at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, London. This topical concept will be explored, examined and exposed through a stimulating programme with some of the most prestigious names within, and outside, the design world.
The theme of Living Architecture stems from the global interest to design, build and operate harmoniously with nature. After months of research and consultation with top industry creatives, the SuperyachtDesign team is confident this year’s theme will provoke new ways of thinking. Discussions will not only examine how the industry can become more eco-focussed and eco-friendly, but also how the design community can draw inspiration from their environment to harness the power of nature. SuperyachtDESIGN Week presents the opportunity for owners to gain deeper understanding of creative and technical advancements in the superyacht world, as well as developing key relationships with the industry's top design figures.
Speakers from all corners of the world are signing up to contribute this year, resulting in a diverse range of key figures from the superyacht industry and further afield, be it science, architecture or motorsport. Previous speakers of SuperyachtDESIGN Week include Andrew Bailey of McLaren, Patrik Schumacher senior designer at Zaha Hadid, M. A. Zuman of Royal Falcon Fleet and industry greats such as Martin Francis, Terence Disdale, Rob Doyle and Ken Freivokh.
An exciting new dimension for 2015 features four distinctive styles of workshops, to encourage and challenge both guests and speakers.
