Lawson Robb win Interior Design Award under 40 metres at the International Yacht and Aviation Awards 2021
Lawson Robb is proud to announce that we have won the award for Interior Design Under 40 Metres at the International Yacht and Aviation Awards 2021. This prestigious reward is a reflection of the ground-breaking yacht designs that the Lawson Robb team are creating and their impact within the Yachting industry.
Lawson Robb were the first designers to collaborate alongside Francesco Guida on Extra Yachts’ brand new model, a 26.2 metre in-build, 86 Fast yacht, to create Project Haze, meeting the clients brief and love for Italian design.
Lawson Robb were approached by their English client, who had previously commissioned three residential projects within the Allect International Design Group, on the lookout for a new-build yacht to use in the Mediterranean and the Client entrusted the team to find and commission the yacht itself to suit the Client’s brief before beginning work on the interiors.
Once the yacht was commissioned, Lawson Robb began work on the interiors creating a contemporary but pared-back interior with a penthouse feel as requested in the brief, revolving around a colour scheme of blues and greys. Changes to meet the brief internally also began by making changes to the cabinetry and the creation of a feature area in the main saloon where the owner could display a favourite piece of art, all of which creates the requested serene and calm environment.
The serenity and unique Yacht layout created by the team means Project Haze has many aspects to it that create this truly special project. For the Head Designer, George Wolstenholme, the more spacious aft deck is the favourite feature onboard especially as this can be transformed into an entertainment space with a projector for late-night outdoor movies. Additionally, the design team feel the unique layout allowing integration between guest and crew space with the galley, which sits aft of the main deck, creates the apartment feel and continuity throughout the project, making this design completely unique to the Yachting industry.
We would like to say thank you to everyone who voted for us.
