Azimut Yachts at Milano Design Week 2024

Azimut Yachts presents “Mooring by the Moon”, an immersive installation curated by AMDL CIRCLE and Michele De Lucchi. Inspired by the Seadeck Yacht Series, beauty and technology blend for a sustainable future – which is here and now for Azimut.

In the evocative setting of the Bagni Misteriosi in Milan, Azimut’s “Mooring by the Moon” is an emotional journey through beauty and sustainable innovation.

This journey through installations consists of four acts – a tribute to the theatrical vocation of the Bagni Misteriosi del Teatro Franco Parenti – which invites visitors to be surprised by the wonder of the natural world, seen as if for the first time from the terrace of a boat illuminated by the reflections of a large moon, lying on the water in the heart of the city.

An unexpected environment comes together, in which the emotions awakened by the rediscovery of nature arouse the desire to protect it and share a concrete commitment to preserve it for future generations: “The difference can and must be made here and now, not left to distant promises of a world to come or with a superficial approach to the topic of environmental sustainability. The yacht in the pool at Bagni Misteriosi is the emblem of our commitment: concrete, measurable and always present”, explains Giovanna Vitelli, Chair of the Azimut|Benetti Group.

The itinerary of installations, curated by AMDL CIRCLE and the architect Michele De Lucchi, unfolds in four stages within the historic environments of the Bagni Misteriosi in Milan.

The first act – Gentle by the Sea – welcomes visitors into the suspended time of wonder where – far from the frenetic flow of everyday life – the sun rises and sets on the water while the sounds, colors and scents of the sea evoke the gentle era inaugurated by Azimut for a new, respectful relationship between man and nature.

On the second stage – The Sea Rocks – innovation and technology are revealed at the service of beauty and a more sustainable present. Large sculptures created by AMDL CIRCLE and Michele De Lucchi with the alternative and recycled materials, the same ones used by Azimut to reduce the environmental impact of the Seadeck Series, guide visitors to discover the multiple lives of matter: recovered fishing nets are regenerated, recreated and infinitely reshaped to become fabric, and 15,000 plastic bottles make up the soul of the Seadeck 6, the first model of the Series.

The third act – The Seadeck Lounge – encapsulates the philosophy of Matteo Thun & Antonio Rodriguez, authors of the Seadeck Series interiors: design for a conscious world, respectful of all the parties involved, human and environmental. The architects worked through subtraction, redefining the concept of luxury to bring out the “heart” of the environments and designing spaces for “feeling good”. The natural and recycled materials used have an important role, such as cork – the ancient Mediterranean material capable of spontaneous regeneration – which takes the place of teak in the external decking of the Seadeck Series.

The final act leads to Seadeck 6 – the most efficient yacht ever built by Azimut and the embodiment of the course charted by the Shipyard to reduce emissions and energy consumption. Moored in the heart of the Bagni Misteriosi, the boat is revealed to the public lying on the water in the shadow of the large moon, whose reflections enhance the lines designed by Alberto Mancini and the Fun Island, a reinvented stern terrace that symbolizes a new lifestyle based on well-being. With the Seadeck Series, the journey back to nature is complete. A reduction in CO2 emissions of up to 40% is possible in a year of average use, representing the first Low Emission Series in the world, here to make a difference on a broad scale.

Materia Natura, the theme of Fuorisalone 2024, is interpreted by Azimut, AMDL CIRCLE and Michele De Lucchi as an opportunity to place visitors in front of the majesty of nature – embodied by the large moon floating dreamily. As the Seadeck, which metaphorically opens to embrace the sea, so at the Bagni Misteriosi in Milan we rediscover an intimate connection with nature at the dawn of a new, gentle era.
