Experienced and up-and-coming megayacht designers all understand the importance of including furnishings in their profile and interior design drawings. So it comes as no surprise that some designers get pretty creative in the process. It also comes as no surprise that Van Geest Design has decided to custom design and commission deck furnishings for clients, given their feedback and its partners’ experience in both furniture and industrial design.
Pictured are items from Van Geest Design’s Flow series of furnishings. From settees to sunbeds and more, the Flow series incorporates soft, almost fluid lines. Van Geest Design describes the inspiration as being “human shapes,” and you can see it in the way the backrest and seats conform to the shape of your back and legs. All of the Flow furnishings, which even include U-shape tables that can serve as side tables in seating arrangements as easily as they can in staterooms, are constructed of composite, with carbon fiber legs, to make it easy for crewmembers to move around as needed and, equally important, maintain. The latter also was kept in mind for fabrics. Both the fabrics and the composite can feature colors of your choice, too.
Besides the Flow series, Van Geest Design offers the Facet series, highlighted by strong, striking geometrics; the Cosmopolitan series, which pairs marble tops with stainless steel bases; the Split series, where pieces fit together to form one item yet also split apart (hence the name) to serve additional purposes; and more. There are further individual furnishings, like tufted seats and daybeds, that can be mixed in with your existing furnishings. Like the Flow series, Van Geest Design will make all of these (except the Cosmopolitan series) with composite and/or carbon fiber structures.
