On the occasion of the big international boat shows in September 2019, INTERNI, the Mondadori Group magazine of interiors and contemporary design, presents a special OnBOARD edition entirely dedicated to boats and yachts.
“Thanks to research, technological innovation and the evolution of boat-builders tastes, elements of residential living space are migrating to the world of yachting,” declared Gilda Bojardi, editor of INTERNI. “as a result, yachts are increasingly similar to floating villas, furnished with style and products taken from home design. And this before considering that some of the best known names from the architectural world and residential design have migrated on-board, and collaboration between boat-builders and Italian design brands have become evermore frequent.”
The INTERNI OnBOARD special looks at both the incredible history of Italian boat-building and the stories of the designers of their amazing yachts; their latest designs and the results achieved in terms of stylistic forms, comfort, material and technological solutions, as well, of course, as performance. Special attention will focus on on-board design: the use in yachts of super-light and innovative materials, domestically produced indoor and outdoor furnishings, automation options, chef kitchens, fully equipped gyms and office space show the increasingly close link between nautical and residential design.
In September INTERNI recorded double-digit growth in advertising revenues compared with the same period of the previous year and confirmed its absolute leadership in the professional living segment.
INTERNI OnBoard will be available on newsstands along with the September issue of the magazine and will be distributed at Maison&Objet in Paris(6-10 September), the Cannes Yachting Festival (10-15 September), the Genoa Boat Show (19-24 September), the Monaco Yacht Show (25-28 September) and at selected showrooms of Italian design companies in New York, London and Miami.
