Massari Design Studio, led by the architect Alessandro Massari, has delivered its latest projects following a busy 2022.
Featuring elegant combinations of materials, including over 40 types of leather, precious woods, marbles and onyxes, as well as metals with unique finishes and silk carpets, every detail on board the 88m superyacht MY Project X, which was made by Greek shipyard Golden Yachts, is uniquely considered, with refined elements and workmanship that is never ostentatious.
Massari Design Studio's main challenge was to give each individual room its own bespoke look, while at the same time ensuring perfect harmony with the others. The yacht is also an art gallery, with works of art scattered throughout each room, for each of which an ad hoc space has been created.
Some features that highlight the attention to detail and unique tailormade solutions created by Massari Design include:
- the bar façade on the upper deck characterised by an undulating cladding formed by dozens of glass bottles filled with a special whisky-coloured liquid for which the studio also designed rubber-coated spring supports so that the bottles do not rattle while sailing and can be easily removed for cleaning.
- a 4-metre long wine cellar with its unique design inspired by a bank vault to enhance the preciousness of its contents a unique and perfectly integrated element in the dining area.
- a revolving sofa in the beach area consisting of two parts that can be moved, rotated and joined according to the configuration of the room and the needs of the owner and his guests.
Another iconic project recently completed by Massari Design is the MY Ciao 52 metres from the CRN Gruppo Ferretti shipyard, whose design provides an overall vision that pursues concepts of linearity and cleanliness, blending them with details that are refined and sophisticated.
In particular, great attention has been paid to the large openings that marry with the outside in the salons where, pursuing the idea of having no interruptions, the vertical structures have been covered with mirrors.
The warmth of the rooms is manifested through the use of materials with warm colour tones such as wood or metal with a champagne finish and soft finishes such as leather, while the selection of fabrics mainly follows a neutral base with colour accents.
All the rooms are conceived as cosy spaces, enveloped in the warmth of wood and interspersed with strong design elements that give them a unique and elegant character. The master cabin, for example, is designed down to the smallest detail to offer the best possible experience on board, and features a mirrored wall that expands the perception of space.
Elsewhere, and also important for the studio, are the yacht refitting works carried out for the 55-metre Amels La Masquerade, the 49-metre Rossinavi N2H and also the numerous private aircrafts designed in collaboration with Boeing and Citadel.
This year sees the firm already working on interior projects for the 77-metre MY O'Rea by Cantiere Golden Yachts, the Darwin 86 by Cantiere delle Marche, and a yacht over 80 metres long currently protected by NDA, as well as refitting the MY Forever One by ISA Yachts and the MY O'Eva (Ex: Cloud 9, C9, and Ice Angel) 61 metres by CMN.
