Theodoros Fotiadis Design reveals 105m concept 5th Element

10 February 2023 • Written by Brooke Murphy

The studio of Theodoros Fotiadis Design has revealed designs for a 105-metre superyacht concept that takes inspiration from the elements: earth, water, fire, air and space.

Aptly named 5th Element, each of the design's five decks is themed around one of the elements with a set colour palette. The pool deck, inspired by earth, is finished with abstract ecru-toned carpets and light walnut panelling, while the owner’s deck takes its design direction from water and is finished in light blue hues.

The main saloon is found on the pool deck where a waterfall feature feeds a large swimming pool. One of two interior dining areas on board, the first of which is found on this deck through sliding glass doors, while the upper deck hosts a larger dining table that sits laterally across the deck for more formal affairs. Here, floor-to-ceiling doors open offering access to a helideck. Most living spaces on board are planned with “crystals”  in the ceiling inserts, representing “physical and energetic qualities of the body and universe,” the studio said.

Other amenities include an ice chamber with volcanic stone, a salt room with Himalayan salt brick rendering, an indoor pool spa and a treatment room with ocean views that blend to create a haven for well-being.

5th Element spots a masculine profile with angled exteriors, a distinct reverse bow, and vast amounts of glazing that fill every space with natural light. A pale hull is paired with a dark and moody superstructure sure to turn heads in port.

“We believe that great design relies on the combination of design and function," Fotiadis said. "Each element has a certain relationship with the other elements, based on their nature. These elements have a close relationship with the human body and balance is vital."

Planned for year-round cruising, 5th Element is a concept wrapped around the idea of harnessing the feeling of "independence, endurance and tranquillity." The concept was created by a group of designers with over a century of experience.
