Kongsberg Maritime is known for a wide range of high-tech navigation systems and other maritime products. They approached WORK to develop a bridge concept for the luxury yacht market. The bridge would be presented at the 2007 Monaco Yacht Show.
The aim was to incorporate the aesthetic quality and finish found in luxury automobiles, along with a light, airy feel to the bridge that would leave room for plenty of swank. Among the drawbacks to then-current style of yacht bridges were the bulky consoles and control decks that were not very pleasing to the eye. So we integrated all the screens, displays and controls into a seamless console, which was modeled after the signature Kongsberg console profile. We also incorporated materials often associated with high-end interior design, like stainless steel and premium leather.
We presented the bridge and yacht concepts in a beautiful, custom bound book.
