During the Milan Design Week, Azimut Yachts, showcasing the Azimut S7, has revealed two new exclusive collaborations with Alberto Mancini and Vincenzo De Cotiis Architects.
In the first days of the Milan Design Week, Azimut Yachts were located right at the entrance of the Triennale, showing off the S70.
Giovanna Vitelli from Azimut Benetti Group declared “from ten years now we have been searching, out of the industry, for leading architects who introduce a new language on our yachts, with completely different stylistic codes, expressed by evolving and contemporary projects.”
“It is often a continuous tension because dialogue is sometimes not easy, yet we continue to do so because we believe in this fruitful relationship: a mutual exchange between the shipyard that knows the maritime essence of the object, the owner’s needs and the style brought by the architect. Only in this way does the form, with its stylistic functions, contemplate the function.”
It was announced that new and exclusive collaborations had formed with two famous and talented designers, Alberto Mancini and Vincenzo De Cotiis. Alberto Mancini designed the exterior of the Azimut S10, the new flagship of the S Collection, while Vincenzo De Cotiis Architects has been entrusted with the interiors of the Magellan 25 metre, for the Azimut Grande Collection.
Both yachts are expected by 2019, the year in which Azimut Yacht will celebrate its 50th anniversary.
The well-known architect Achille Salvagni, who has been working with Azimut Yachts for about a decade, was also present.
