Azimut Yachts, in collaboration with Arts Thread, has launched an interesting competition for young designers on the theme of a daycruiser to be included in the Atlantis range. The winner will be announced in December, during the closing event of the celebrations for the Group’s 50th anniversary, in Avigliana.
The competition is open to students and recent graduates of universities or design academies, in particular to those who have chosen the areas of Transportation and Interior Design. Azimut is asking to propose highly creative and innovative projects for a day cruiser of a maximum length of ten metres with inboard motorisation that will be included in the Atlantis range.
The designers can choose to focus on individual aspects of the project: external lines; layouts of both the exterior (with particular attention to transformability and multi-functionality) and the interior; accessories and micro-design details to improve comfort on board. The use of sustainable materials will be considered a distinctive and rewarding element for the final evaluation.
The winner will be announced in December, during the closing event of the celebrations for the Group’s 50th anniversary in Avigliana. He/she will be entitled to three months of internship, fully paid for, at the construction site.
Azimut Yachts organized the competition in collaboration with Arts Thread, an international platform operating in the design sector to connect students, graduates, institutions and companies. This contest confirms the attention of the Piedmontese brand over the past ten years to international schools and universities of design such as IED, Polimi, Coventry University and Politecnico di Torino.
This is the year in which Azimut Yachts was commissioned for the thesis of the degree course in Yacht Design at the IED in Turin. The students discussed the theme “Reviving an icon: reinterpreting in a modern key two historical models of Azimut from the 70s and 80s, the Falaika and the Targa 32”.
