Project: The Comfort Room
What was the purpose of the project?
To provide a new lounge that provided better support and usability, have a more modern style and to use the fabric they supplied which was chosen by the interior designer. They also required new bunks for their sleeping areas that needed more comfort.
What are the project specifications?
A curved U-shaped Lounge for the main cabin in a yacht, plus downstairs bunks. The client took advise from an Interior Designer for the fabric choice, so the Lounge bases and some bunks are plain navy blue, while the lounge backrests are a checkered pattern and the front bunk is a zigzag pattern. The Lounge was designed to have knee roll, lumber and back support and neat pull down points to replace buttons.
What is unique or complex about the project?
During the initial discussions with them regarding fabric choice we recommended against using stripes for the curved back rests of the lounge, as the straight lines won’t allow for the curves and will create optical illusions, which could potentially play with people’s eyes, especially when the boat is moving around at sea. The Interior Designer chose and insisted upon, an even more complicated checkered pattern. However, with some patience, every panel was successfully mirrored and lined-up accurately to create quite an eye catching effect.
What were the results of the project?
The customers were extremely happy. As soon as they step into the cabin, the funky pattern draws your attention and brightens the cabin. They now sit at the lounge more, as it is more comfortable and have a much better nights sleep on the the new bunks.
Is there any other relevant information?
Multiple layers of enduro foam with changing densities was used for longevity and ultimate comfort.
