Kitty Van Der Kamp
Superyacht interior designer Kitty van der Kamp began her distinguished career in 1987 at Frits de Voogt, part of Feadship. She followed this with a spell with interior designer Jan de Bouvrie and then spent three and a half years as a draughtsman and designer in the office of legendary superyacht designer Jon Bannenberg. Moving back to Holland, she worked for Van Lent and then Pieter Beeldsnijder until 1993 when she joined the Diaship design team at Heesen, laying the foundations of her own studio in 1994 and finally working autonomously as Kitty van der Kamp Interior Design in 1997.
In her long and wide-ranging career Kitty van der Kamp has had a hand in numerous yachts. Working from her own studio she created the interior design for the 43 metre Heesen Honey Money and the yard’s 38 metre Obsessions. More recently van der Kamp has worked extensively with Dutch shipyard Mulder, working on several Mulder yachts up to 30 metres.
Kitty van der Kamp’s multifaceted skillset means she engages not only in yacht interior design, but also in space planning, design details and management, concept design, materials specifications and technical and engineering drawings. She has also worked on interior design for corporate and private residential projects.
