The concept - fantasy or reality?

It’s a great idea - but will it ever get delivered?  Do concepts actually advance design, or are they just noise? Do young designers feel they have to produce ever more “wacky” concepts to be noticed, and what’s the point since the designs will likely never go any further. Are crazy concepts good for any industry?

Is it time for a yacht design revolution?

Which designers are pushing the boat out when it comes to interior design? Do designers play it safe to make sale more likely? Should designers lead clients in redefining how they use space, or should they simply shut up and listen? From lighting to layouts, isn’t it time to be radical?
