Baglietto partners with Visionnaire on interior design project
Published: Thursday, 17 October 2019
Baglietto, a historic Italian shipyard based in La Spezia, partners with Visionnaire, a Bologna-based company specialising in high-end interior design. The two Italian brands will create the exclusive interior design concept for the Baglietto 48m T-Line superyacht (hull no. 10233).
This partnership arises from the client's need to enjoy the interiors of a house inside their yachts. Their vision is to live at home even when they are on board, with the same level of comfort. It was this vision from Baglietto clients that drove the collaboration with Visionnaire: the two brands embraced the challenge with enthusiasm and were united by the same values and entrepreneurial philosophy.
The concept focuses on the configuration of the spaces, striving to make the interior and exterior areas and their respective designs comfortable and practical. From the choice of the appropriate furnishings to the finishes of each space, Visionnaire's design focuses on three main areas:
- On the main deck: living area; dining area; owner's bedroom; owner's bathroom
- On the bridge deck: outdoor area and home theatre
- On the lower deck: three VIP cabins
The interiors have a simple, clean and contemporary style, but with a strong personality. They include the use of colour contrasts in the upholstery of the furnishings and the fixed elements of the fittings, such as the dark délabré brass suspended ceiling and the light-coloured wood flooring.
There is a sense of continuous and fluid spaciousness, which changes the concept of rigid space distribution. A central view from the external sofa shows a clear desire to create a strong connection between the interior and exterior.
The living and dining areas make use of soft and neutral shades like the pearl colour of the sofas and the polychrome grey of the Revenge Visionnaire table. The only contrasting element is the teal velvet used to upholster the chairs and for the cushions.
The owner's cabin offers the same contemporary atmosphere seen in the living area. The furniture was chosen from the most recent Visionnaire collections; the Emotion headboard, in this case, has been redesigned with an ad hoc customisation repeated over the whole surface. Fabric wallpaper matching the furnishings are used on the walls.
In the VIP cabins, three different models of for the bed were chosen: Ripley, Perkins and Beloved. They were designed and adapted to the differing shapes of the cabins. In these cabins, the walls have wood and marble panels and fabric wallpaper in differing colours to distinguish cabins and give each one a distinct identity.
The area set aside for the home theater is particularly fascinating because it is open to the surrounding view. It is furnished with the Visionnaire modular Anthem sofa which occupies the whole perimeter of the area while leaving, in this case too, a clear view of the bridge deck exterior.
The exterior features the brand's oval Solstice table, with a marble top that is large enough to seat 10 to 11 people. This area has Palm Beach corner sofas and related coffee tables, and a Serendipity bar unit.
"We start the new yachting season with important projects in collaboration with major partners and designers: our mission is to offer our clientele a fully-custom product," said Michele Gavino, CEO of Baglietto. "This partnership will enable us to increase our basin of reference reaching countries potentially strategic for our brand and at the same time providing the high-quality style sought in those who choose to live the Baglietto brand.”
"We are very proud to be able to work in perfect synergy with a company like Baglietto who has such extensive know-how in the yachting industry," concludes Andrea Gentilini, CEO of Visionnaire. "It has been a significant project. While on the one hand it has confirmed the long-standing bespoke capacity of the Visionnaire Brand, together with the excellence of our typically Italian savoir faire, it also shows our natural passion for design and our penchant for putting ourselves to the test with other operations in the luxury sector."
The Baglietto 48-meter T-Line hull no. 10233 is currently under construction at the Baglietto shipyard in La Spezia, and will be available for delivery in Spring 2021.
