The team behind Eternal Spark – Hot Lab Yacht Design
The name Hot Lab has long been synonymous with innovative yacht design, inspiring a sense of awe and reverence within the luxury maritime industry. This renowned design firm, in collaboration with Bilgin Yachts, one of Turkey's leading yacht builders, has yet again pushed the boundaries of nautical brilliance with their latest masterpiece: the Eternal Spark yacht, a 50-meter superyacht belonging to the Bilgin 163 series.
Hot Lab was established in Milan in 2004 by Antonio Romano and Enrico Lumini, respectively marketing and design manager. Their proactive collaboration quickly proved its mettle, producing projects distinguished by in-depth design research and sophisticated, elegant aesthetics.
Hot Lab’s contributions serve some of the top shipyards in the world, as well as yacht owners, guiding and consulting them throughout the entirety of their yacht’s design and construction journey. Starting from 2022, Hot Lab joined the Viken Group.
Architechture for voyagers -Hot Lab’s philosophy
Architecture for Voyagers encapsulates Hot Lab’s distinctive philosophy that views a yacht not just as a vessel, but as a multidimensional work of art and engineering. In their perspective, a yacht is a finely crafted piece of architecture that must satisfy multiple facets.
At the heart of this philosophy is the belief that a yacht should seamlessly integrate both her interior and exterior, erasing the conventional boundary between the two. Each yacht, in Hot Lab’s vision, becomes a holistic entity, with every component contributing to the overall harmony and aesthetic of the vessel.
For Hot Lab, the inclusion of elements that provide comfort, appeal to the aesthetic senses, and maximize space is paramount. But, more than just individual elements, it’s the symphony they create together that yacht enthusiasts recognize and admire. Unlike traditional views which treat the yacht’s exterior and interior as separate entities, Hot Lab envisions them as two sides of the same coin, creating a unified and singular object.
Another cornerstone of their design philosophy is the emphasis on lighting. Whether derived from the sun’s rays or artificially engineered, light plays a pivotal role. Without apt illumination, even the most intricate details fade and cannot be observed. Proper lighting not only highlights design nuances but also fosters an ambience conducive to voyages.
Ultimately, by seeing the yacht as an undivided entity, blending its interior and exterior, Hot Lab aims to craft timeless masterpieces. A timeless design ensures that the yacht retains its allure and elegance, celebrating its beauty for decades. In a world where trends come and go, creating something enduring becomes the true testament to design excellence.
