Lawson Robb has been featured in an article by the Superyacht Times that looks into interior detail and craftmanship behind Superyacht Phi.
The article reads:
Established in 1964, Struik & Hamerslag are Netherlands based interior specialists, who are well-established in the superyacht industry. With a team of 190 craftsmen and a track record of over 200 projects, Struik & Hamerslag complement the new-build and refit sector with their in-house know-how and vast knowledge of yacht interiors.
One of their latest projects is the eagerly awaited, Project Phi, which is set to be launched later this year. Struik & Hamerslag have worked on various large projects, however, Phi “is an outstanding and prestigious, once in a lifetime project,” says Joost van Hattum, from Struik & Hamerslag’s Sales Department. They have worked closely in collaboration with Royal Huisman and Lawson Robb on developing Cor D. Rover’s design philosophy – as requested by Phi’s owner.
Phi sets new standards in the yachting industry, both aesthetically and technologically. With her interior inspiration deriving from nature, Struik & Hamerslag have cleverly used core elements and materials to design her ‘natural’ aesthetic. The idea is to promote the ‘natural progression of our world’ using the basics: Matter, energy, space and time. As these form the foundation of our existence, these have been incorporated into the fundamentals of Phi’s interior design.
While many details of Phi’s interior are yet to be released, Struik & Hamerslag have alluded to the owner’s sky lounge being centred upon the idea of ‘pre-creation’, which will be used as an area of serenity and reflection.
According to Cor D. Rover, who is behind Phi’s design philosophy, “The more we see Phi come alive, the more I am convinced that only a sailboat builder has the know-how and ambition to execute miracles on a square inch, and Royal Huisman is the epitome of this watchmakers’ skill.”
Phi is set to launch in 2021, alongside a shadow support yacht which will hold her multiple tenders.
