“TO BE FREE.TO DIVE NAKED AS A DOLPHIN. SWIFT, SILENT, SERENE INTO THE DEPTHS OF THE SEA.

TO FLYING HIGH UP INTO THE IN NITE BLUE OF THE SKY, AND GLIDE QUIETLY, TO BLEND IN WITH THE AIR OR MELT INTO THE WATER BECOMING ONE WITH NATURE AND REDISCO- VERING THE SELF.”

(JACQUES MAYOL)

IT’S AN EXPRESSIONIST VISION ENCLOSED IN A FRAME, A SNAP SHOT OF A BUBBLE AS IT COMES AFLOAT IN THE INSTANT BEFORE EXPLODING. A SIMPLE AND CURVACEOUS LINE WHICH IS THE SURFACE OF THE WATER AND THE BUBBLE.

CONCEPT

ANALYZING THE LIFE OF THE OWNER, WE CAN UNDERSTAND HOW THE YACHT ISN’T JUST ANOTHER EXPENSIVE TOY, BUT IT’S A NEW EXPERIENCE, THE WAY TO REACH HIS DREAM.

I WANTED TO SEE HIS WAY OF LIFE FROM ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE, TO TRY AND FIND A CONCEPT WHICH COULD BE THE SYNTHESIS AND THE EXPRESSION OF HIS PERSONALITY.

THE CONCEPT WAS BORN BY DRAWING A LINE ON THE HORIZON OF THE SEA, THUS DIFFERENTIATING WHAT IS ABOVE THE SURFACE, AIR AND WHAT IS BELOW, THE WATER.

IT’S THE DIVISION BETWEEN A WORLD EXPLORED, REPRESENTED BY THE OWNER’S PASSIONS FOR WINE, FOOD AND HIS BELOVED TUSCANY; AND A WORLD TO EXPLORE, HIS DREAM, THAT IS THE WORLD UNDERWATER.

FROM THE DESIRE TO COMBINE IDEALLY THESE TWO WORLDS, EXPLORED AND TO EXPLORE, WHICH ARE SYMBOLISED BY TWO ELEMENTS: AIR AND WATER, I USED A CHEMICAL COMPOSITION THROUGH WHICH WHEN WATER AND AIR COME IN CONTACT, THEY CREATE A BUBBLE.
