The Golden Compass is awarded on the basis of a pre-selection made by Association For The Industrial Design (ADI) Permanent Observatory of Design, consisting of a commission of experts, designers, critics, historians, specialised journalists and assigned by a panel of international experts as Cinzia Anguissola D’Altoè Sacchetti, Marc sadler, Gabriella Bottini, Mugendi K. M’Rithaa, Yossef Schvetz, Walter Maria De Silva e Toshiyuki Kita. Monokini wins the Golden Compass Award “for the reinterpretation of an archetype and maritime tradition combined with the introduction of innovative technologies”.
The award ceremony took place at Palazzo Isimbardi in Milan with the presence of Luciano Galimberti President of ADI and many authorities June 15.
The award was accepted by Raffaella Daino, Head of Communication and Marketing of the Baglietto shipyard, part of the Gavio Group since 2012, together with the designers Francesco Paszkowski and Alberto Mancini responsible for the exterior and interior design respectively.
“We are very honoured and proud to receive the Golden Compass award,” says Daino. “Monokini reflects a new course for Baglietto and receiving such an important award demonstrates that we are on the right path. This reinforces our mission to always improve, with constant attention and commitment to the highest standards in quality, while maintaining the Made-In-Italy craftsmanship and innovation that have always been part of the Baglietto tradition”.
The yacht’s streamlined, sleek lines was designed by Francesco Paskowski Design, while the soft, flexuous interior is the signature of designer Alberto Mancini. The naval architecture is by Baglietto. At 44m long in all aluminium, Monokini can host 10 guests in five cabins on the lower deck and eight crew members.
The interiors feature a series of details that draw inspiration from the rational and yet sophisticated world of aviation design. Wood, steel and leather – the materials used all over the yacht – were combined to obtain a blend of shades of colour that result in a stylish, refined atmosphere.
The wood used for the bulkheads - bleached sycamore - can also be found in all ceiling panels and, together with the treated Wengé parquet and the dove-colour silk inserts, conveys a sense of calmness and refinement. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing, similar to that found on large private jets, and is further enhanced by the use of lighting, aimed at softening the wood curves.
Interior and outdoor furniture also catch eyeballs: all sofas, tables, lamps and handles wereentirely customised to fulfill the precise wishes and requirements of the Owner.
Powered by two MTU 3700hp engines, this new 44m vessel can reach an impressive maximum speed of 30 knots, while the four zero speed stabilisers will grant stability even when the yacht is far out at sea.
A model of the Baglietto Fast line will be on display at the product exhibition held at Palazzo Isimbardi June 14-22.
