Piero Lissoni through all over these years, dazzled us with the best interior design projects, either residencial / private houses or contract projects, and now we would love to show you his latest breathtaking project, Sanlorenzo SX88 luxury yacht. Time to see this overwhelming Piero Lissoni interior design project.
Sanlorenzo’s SX88 offers a slightly different take on waterborne living. The SX88 is a ‘crossover’ motoryacht, in that it has been designed to be as flexible as possible, without focusing on one particular attribute. Intended for island-hopping charters, this floating retreat eschews impractically sleek lines in favour of an open, more upright stance.
Sanlorenzo has found space on for a couple of tenders and a generous ‘beach club’. Below decks there are 4-5 well appointed cabins, along with crew quarters. And for a big boat, the SX88 uses as little energy as possible, with power coming from banks of high-tech banks of batteries to minimise emissions in out-of-the-way locations.
Key to the SX88’s interior ambience is the involvement of acclaimed designer Piero Lissoni, working alongside the exterior designer Lou Codega. Sanlorenzo has previously tapped the talents of Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel for interior design, and the Lissoni collaboration marks a next step in the company’s design language. A magic design collaboration between the best italian interior designers.
Opt for the open-plan configuration – instead of the grand owner’s cabin – and you’ll get a wood-lined loft-style living space more akin to a penthouse apartment than a traditional boat. Lissoni and his team of David Lopez, Stefano Castelli, and Marco Gottardi, have created a saloon with panoramic views through the floor-to-ceiling windows, a space that flows right through from the bow seating area to the beach club at the stern.
