William Garvey has provided the bespoke furniture for the superyacht 'Avante' on behalf of Struik & Hamerslag.
Working closely with the designers Peter Mikic & Design Unlimited, William Garvey provided a survey and working drawings, then manufactured the furniture for seven bathrooms along with the joinery for panelling around windows in the main living quarters and air conditioning units.
Speaking about current superyacht design trends, William Garvey MD Bill Garvey noted that “there is a definite trend towards natural woods and finishes. I understand that influential visitors to the last Design Unlimited Exhibition reported that the key influences for 2018 were to come from nature, with a decisive move towards natural materials, fibres and renewable resources.”
He added that “natural really works as it will always be somewhat en-vogue.”
William Garvey sourced teak from ethically sound and sustainable sources to make the bespoke furniture and the company aims to continue to be faithful to this ethos.
Designer Peter Mikic stated: “The approach in this project was to reconfigure the space, introduce controlled natural light and design bespoke freestanding furniture. The execution was clean, comfortable and has the feel of a spacious apartment floating on the sea.”
