Light is a visible yet untouchable element in every studio’s interior design. Its aesthetics are deeply rooted in the rich tradition of Dutch design, where experimentation with light is key. As befits a true Dutchman, Vripack playfully combines natural light with an ambient freshness that enhances the beach-house’s atmosphere in the interiors of M5, capturing the exact atmosphere the South American owner’s family loves so much.
After carefully balancing the layout of the yacht to various uses during day and night time, Vripack opted for re-used oak from New York warehouses to cover the floors. It provides the yacht with a personality you can not get by using new materials.
‘Our interiors are all about light, dark and the playful balance in between. So we combined the light sofas, designed by Piet Boon, with a concrete and mat-black steel central staircase.'

The natural textiles like silk, wool and blends between them, create an understated and original mood. The design team could design and challenge this mood by the use of Virtual Reality. An in-house feature that also gave the family a clear sense of what their future seagoing home will look and feel like.
Just as one prioritizes livability when contemplating a land-based home, so does Vripack when designing yachts. Every aspect of a yacht’s layout, from the placement and proportions of the spaces and the relationships between them to the situation of the stairs, service routes and doors, must fit together coherently and align with its owner’s needs and lifestyle.
