The design Wave Catamaran by Roberta Visintin has been acknowledged with the renowned Silver A’ Design Award in Yacht and Marine Vessels Design Category, after rigorous judging by the international committee of the A’ Design Awards & Competitions within numerous submissions.
Roberta Visintin, the creator of the awarded project Wave Catamaran demonstrates “Thinking about the sea as a world in a continuous movement, we took the “wave” as a symbol of it. Starting from this idea we modelled the lines of the hulls which seem to break themselves to bow. The second element at the base of the project idea is the concept of the living space that we wanted to draw in a sort of continuity between interiors and exteriors. Through the big glass windows we get an almost 360 degree view, which allows a visual continuity with outside. Not only, through the large glass doors opened life inside is projected in the outdoor spaces.”
Wave Catamaran was conceived by Arch. Roberta Visintin and Arch. Cristiana Foyti
