Sweeping beauty: Pascale Reymond on the interior design of 95m Kismet

Kismet’s interior marries art deco influences with a sense of perspective, says Reymond Langton designer Pascale Reymond...

The client wanted an impressive, sophisticated interior but with a comfortable, residential feel. There is a very dramatic sense of perspective throughout Kismet, but we also focused a great amount on detail; there are elements of surprise throughout the yacht.

The main challenge was to come up with new design ideas and a new style, while continuing the legacy of the previous Kismet (now named Global). It has a very similar contemporary art deco influence, but with different details and new finishes. I’d say there is a sense of ‘art deco revisited’, which makes all of Kismet’s elements quite unique.

The spaces on board are connected, but can also be separated with sliding panels. We wanted to offer good perspective, but with the option to create cosy, more intimate spaces if desired. From the upper deck lounge you can see straight through the length of the boat, and it is connected to the other saloons by a grand staircase – but it also provides an intimate, casual area. The interior design here began with the bar, which is like a sculptural work of art.

I absolutely love the main staircase on board; it is one of my favourite architectural elements. All parts of the staircase are interconnected to become one unique form: the handrail melts into the stringer as one shape and the steps come out of it like blade propellers. It combines Macassar ebony, bronze and textured leather, so there was a great amount of craftsmanship involved. Curving the ebony so that the grain followed the shape of the stringer was a challenge, to say the least.”
