Ardeo Design completes interior design for New Nordhavn 96’ Superyacht N9612

July 24, 2015

Scott Cole, president of Ardeo Design, has just completed the interior design for the all-new Nordhavn 96’ superyacht N9612, purchased by the owners of the pre-owned Nordhavn 76’ explorer yacht Eliana (N7617), with interior design by Ardeo Design. As much as they enjoy their current yacht, they have decided to buy the larger 29,2-metre Nordhavn 96′ motor yacht N9612, with more space for family and crew.

The new Nordhavn 96’ super yacht N9612 features walnut wood joinery as well as leather and fabric wrapped wall panels, which are less warm and reddish in colour, to complement the wood. With the owner’s interest in the metal industry, the polished stainless steel inlays were also incorporated.

Some new elements on the new Nordhavn 96 yacht N9612 includes a motorized wall partition that rises to close off the Galley from the Dining Area. The owners are casual people and wanted a “Tea/ Coffee Station” that is within the Dining Area so that family and guests can help themselves to beverages, instead of walking into the Galley that is typically busy as well.

“Alex’s designs and concepts are slick, progressive but never experimental nor contrived. To me balance and proportion are key elements in design that are often overlooked for the sake of size and flash. Like elegant sports cars, his vessels are eye catching, new, artistic and original. These vessels will stand the test of time as artistic creations of unique individual character and form.”Stef-Albert, Interior Designer.

“A privilege to work with such a talented, unique and creative mind. A designer who truly understands the principal of ‘less is more’ and who’s sought after style translates as second to none when nothing less than the magic of individuality will do.”Alex McDiarmid, Designer.

Boasting an amazing art collection and the finest custom furnishings, the unique interiors of luxury yacht IWANA take inspiration from the slick and timeless design of the exterior.  They provide guests aboard this breath-taking vessel with the ultimate experience of modern yet timeless sophistication of balance, beauty and rhythm.

“Inspired by the beautiful curves and lines of Iwana’s exterior, it was important to me to balance form and function and create a coherent flow from the outside in,” comments Stef-Albert.

Luxury super yacht IWANA provides deluxe and timeless accommodation for up to 16 guests in 8 lavish cabins. Boasting a magnificent bedroom and vast class ceiling, the top and upper most private Owner’s Deck ensures maximum privacy and intimacy from the rest of the yacht. Closest to the open skies, it sports beautiful shades of blue in ranges of indigo – reflecting night skies and the deep ocean – through sky and powder blue mixed up with white and gold as references to the clouds and sun. With unique finishes, leathers, fabrics and hand blown Venetian glass light fixtures, it forms the perfect backdrop for the multi-million dollar art collection.

I embraced this opportunity for various reasons,” said competition winner, Francesco Russolillo.Definitely because of the client, Azimut Yachts, which embodies Italian excellence and is admired worldwide. It is a company that has figured out how to stand out. Even in times when the rest of the world has been struggling, it has remained at the forefront of developing new ways to experience the water and their vessels. I also approached this competition as a way to challenge myself. It was an opportunity to experiment and design something based on concrete parameters; and, like any new undertaking, it allowed me to learn something more about research and design.”

Erick van Egeraat comments:We are very proud of this result. Specifically because this award underlines the fact that we continue to explore new territory and that we lead the way in terms of innovation, craftsmanship and creating quality and value. Each of my projects displays my personal vision, and especially the design of MySky took this to a whole new level. The more someone is aiming for a result which is not particularly standard, the more I get excited. This ship’s design not an ultra-avant-garde design, but it is definitely not conventional. It has been a clear case of how distinct you can be without being, let’s say, in your face, or obnoxious and at all times remaining fully focused on creating maximum satisfaction for our clients.
