Jozeph Forakis… design is a well-known and successful office that has won many awards since 1992. The company’s last award, A’ Design Award, is for the CLX96 yacht. Jozeph Forakis and his team continued working on yachts, and this time the company surprised the whole world. The recently completed project’s name is Pegasus 88m, the world’s first 3D-printed superyacht.
In Greek mythology, Pegasus was an immortal, winged horse that sprang from the neck of Medusa. Pegasus has so many stories that we cannot share them all here. But after Pegasus itself, in today’s world, many companies name their companies, products, or services after Pegasus just like Jozeph Forakis did. The 3D printed superyacht Pegasus has solar wings, just like the mythological horse had wings.
The founder of the company, Joseph Forakis, designed the futuristic yacht to become virtually invisible. The desire for invisibility led the company to design a yacht that is invisible to the earth itself. Therefore, they designed an environmentally friendly yacht in order to achieve sustainability, structural integrity, and range at the same time.
The Pegasus 88m 3D printed superyacht was structured with 3D printing technology. The result of this technology was a strong and lightweight structure. During the production stage of the futuristic yacht, the team will need less energy, waste, material, time, and space when compared to traditional yacht construction.
Interior and Exterior Design of the 3D Printed Superyacht
The exterior design is also unique. The body of the futuristic yacht is low and linear, with a silvery metallic finish and a plumb bow. At the waterline, there is a foundation that supports the structure. This structure has causal glass wings that reflect the sky and clouds. Therefore, the 3D printed superyacht becomes invisible.
The interior design represents the Tree of Life, which is a breathing and living monument to mother nature. The base of the tree emerges from a pool on the lower deck. The hydroponic and meditation Zen garden surrounds this lower deck. The tree vertically extends through all four levels. Inside the futuristic yacht, there are suites, open balconies, a starboard, a port, a solarium, and many more.
