Baglietto wins Compasso D’Oro design award for Monokini
by Chris Jefferies
The 44 metre Baglietto superyacht Monokini has won the prestigious Compasso D’Oro ADI 2016 design award.
Now in its 24th edition, the Compasso D’Oro is considered by many to be most influential award in the design industry, covering a wide range of products from automotive to interiors.
The ceremony took place at the Palazzo Isimbardi in Milan this week (June 15) and Raffaella Daino, head of communication and marketing at Baglietto, collected the award.
“We are very honored and proud to receive the Compasso d’Oro award. Monokini reflects a new course for Baglietto and receiving such an important award demonstrates that we are on the right path,” she said.
Launched in 2013, Monokini is an all-aluminium construction 44 metre yacht from the Italian yard’s Fast series, which features in-house naval architecture from the Baglietto team.
The streamlined exterior styling is by Alberto Mancini, while her interiors are courtesy of Francesco Paskowski Design. A harmonious blend of wood, steel and leather creates a refined, yet subdued atmosphere, which Baglietto likens to a private jet.
Her layout comprises five guest cabins on the lower deck and room for a crew of eight, while power comes from a pair of 3,700hp MTU engines for a top speed of 30 knots.
To celebrate Monokini winning the Compasso D’Oro award, a model of the Baglietto Fast line will be on display at the Palazzo Isimbardi until June 22.
