Enrico Lumini, Partner and Head of Design at Hot Lab, describes the yacht as follows: “Bilgin 163 follows the studio’s new philosophy ‘Architecture for Voyagers’ and focuses on the cleanliness of architectural volumes, and a renewed sense for a softness of lines. A plastic minimalism, sober, but rich in details.” In this model, the designers wanted to rediscover the luxury of pure craftsmanship, the attention to each and every detail without relinquishing the use of precious materials. According to Lumini, the yacht will be “modern, rich, yet warm” in feeling. To provide a much more refined look and a soft sense of balance, the Hot Lab team uses small quantities of wood and natural leather in the interior living areas. In Lumini’s words, Bilgin 163 is a perfect combination of shapes, soft colors and great richness of detail. Throughout the guest cabins, natural colors and materials highlight the yacht's connection to the sea, with soft transitions in every color and material being used on board.
