WHY

furniture for WHY motoryacht
Client : RDAI for WHY
2009




WHY is born from the encounter of Hermès and Wally.
The furniture pieces are designed as an extension of the interior architecture of the boat, designed by RDAI.

Without refering to traditional codes or look of sea furniture, the nautical specificity and the attention to the quality of life on board run the furniture design. Shapes can’t hurt passengers, cushions are safely kept in place, books protected from the swell’s movements…
Whilst solid pieces offer their stability in the lower deck wide open spaces, the furniture gets lighter the more you rise up into the boat.
Forms follow uses and are consistent with the inner logic of each material, revealing them.
The traveller always remains the true heart of the vessel.
