A marine residential concept reaching the golden mean that sets the balance between
Luxury & Sustainability
Milena Cvijanovich and Denis Muller, co-founders of MCM Designstudio, a Swiss architecture firm, will unveil their revolutionary concept of a Floating Island/Megayacht, Island(E)motion, with an ecological footprint that is 60% less than that of a traditional yacht. The new concept will be introduced at the 1.618 Sustainable Luxury fair, held in Paris at the Cité de la Mode et du Design from March 29th to April 1st, 2012.
Paris, France, 28 March, 2012: The Swiss architect, Milena Cvijanovich has developed an innovative mode of travel and relaxation, one that harmonizes luxury with sky, water and earth for UHNWI clients. Instead of being at odds with the environment, MCM Designstudio has conceived of a nomadic island that transports one to an unmatched equilibrium. “Live on an island designed to your dreams and be free to explore beyond the horizon,” states Milena Cvijanovich, “harnessing the power of the wind, the sun and the waves.”
Island(E)motion is a residential and hospitality complex. The 180m2 VIP suites have been designed to meet exacting standards of harmonious interior design. The client-connoisseur will appreciate an environment decorated with inspired furniture in a range of ecological materials that render rooms into works of art. The roof and decks are both beautiful and practical. Landscaped in verdant green, they give one a sense of relaxing in an organic garden, while serving to filter rainwater and provide interior insulation.
Respect for the environment, a Laissez-passer to exceptional natural sites The 4 decks of Island(E)motion feature use of both recycled and recyclable construction materials for their superstructure, with an LOA of up to 180m and a beam of up to 40m. The yacht’s cruising speed is 10 knots. A gyro-stabiliser system will deliver excellent rolling motion attenuation by up to 95% while the vessel is at anchor, drifting, alongside, loitering or at transit speed. Energy required to power life on the yacht will be generated by a unique combination of solar and thermal panels, as well as by wind energy. New propeller technology and fuel systems will reduce power consumption. As a result, the water bodies classified as UNESCO heritage sites will be places of paradise readily accessible to Island(E)motion.
Milena Cvijanovich and her partner, Denis Muller, will be happy to present more details on Island(E)motion at their exhibition booth during the 1.618 Sustainable Luxury Fair.
