Young Designer of the Year Awards 2020 Finalists Announced

Young Designer of the Year Awards 2020 Finalists Announced

7 of 7 7/7

Valentin Weigand

Concept Name: Plato

Nationality: German

Education: ENSA Nantes

Designer Statement:

Plato’s key design feature is the dining winter-garden next to a wine cave and an art gallery, ensuring endless nights full of exceptional conversations, Michelin starred food and a mind-blowing ambience. The compartment is transferable into a partly opened area and features a waterfall that leads into the beach club’s pool.

Furthermore, the yacht offers a smooth transition between mental inspiration and a life of leisure, which is magnified in spaces such as the beach club situated on the lower deck aft including a SPA and a fitness centre. When the time is right for a proper party, the main deck aft lounge will be the ideal location - the lounge provides space to dance, sit and chat while the DJ might be delivering just the right vibes - performing from the winter-gardens extendable balcony above.

Subsequently the yachts propulsion can be enforced through fuel cells on a base of hydrogen, ensuring a path directing concept to meet the demand to preserve the planets environment. Overall, Plato offers a platform for physical and mental well-being, encouraging travellers on board to recognise, appreciate and preserve the beauty that surrounds all of us, if having the courage to look up close.
