2013 Interior Design Trends by Kelly Hoppen

Globally renowned interior designer and business woman Kelly Hoppen shares her trend tips on interiors, colours and what is hot in the year to come.

“Baroque minimalism is the main trend we will see this year. To me it means a modern interior with baroque style features such as oversized murals and raw textures. Lighting will continue to play an important part in design and remain very sharp.” Kelly Hoppen, MBE.

Sunreef Yachts keeps perfecting its revolutionary project of a motoryacht-catamaran, 85 Sunreef Power

Sunreef Yachts keeps perfecting its revolutionary  project of a motoryacht-catamaran, 85 Sunreef Power

Introduced officially at the Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes 2012, 85 Sunreef Power <http://www.sunreef-yachts.com/model-exterior,Power-Boat,19,Sunreef-85-Power.html>  has already gained world-wide recognition and Clients attention. Since then, Sunreef Yachts’ in-house design office has been constantly working on improving the model to reach perfection and go ahead into the future as much as possible.

The yacht’s beam has been extended of 2 meters which increases the living area to 522m2. The main idea of the concept is to stress the superb space that catamarans offer thanks to their large beam and to arrange this space in the similar way as on motoryachts. This means one huge main deck spanning the entire beam and housing dining and lounging areas, in both exterior aft deck and inside the saloon that all together create a seamless, open space.

This space arrangement will certainly please the very demanding motoryacht clientele that can now enjoy their favorite motoryacht design and layout combined with catamaran advantages such as stability, comfort of cruising, low draft, low fuel consumption and oceanic range. Extended storage space within the Beach Club on the aft will now easily accommodate a tender for 9, diving equipment for 8 and 4 sea bobs so together with the spa pool on the flybridge this boat will be all about comfort and fun.

THE RENAULT STAND DESIGNED BY DGT AT THE MONDIAL DE L’AUTOMOBILE IN PARIS

Dan Dorell, Lina Ghotmeh and Tsuyoshi Tane, the founders of the agency, Dorell.Ghotmeh.Tane/Architects, have acquired international renown thanks to the completion of numerous large-scale projects, and has recieved several prestigious awards. In 2010, Dorell.Ghotmeh.Tane/Architects won the competition for the new design concept of the Renault stand.

They used an archeological approach, which has already seen them win numerous international architecture awards, to better understand the French car manufacturer’s DNA. The goal was to spark emotion at first sight, to act as the nerve centre for Renault’s identity and ensure each visitor has a unique and memorable experience. Subsequently, the spectacular stand consists of two hills, on top of which are rotating platforms showing the new concept cars or vehicles.

The floor and ceiling lighting enhance the feeling of motion created by the 3D layout. Balls of light move as one and simulate the movement of the waves whilst subtly changing colour. Brand identity images appear on the huge LED screens to create the desired effect.
