I said : "Ladies and gentleman it is an honour for me being here and being part of this great Family .. The Dominator Ilumen Yachts Family".
This is how it started my speach last June at the Monaco Yacht Club.
It was asked me to present a brand new interior project/concept to present in Monaco for the Official Launch of the Dominator Ilumen 28 Meters Yacht. The big challenge was not developing a new project, but developing it based on a watch. Yes, a watch..and what a watch!
Greubel Forsey is a Swiss manufacturer of top-of-the-range watches, founded in 2004 at La Chaux-de-Fonds by Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey, specializing in the production of single and multiple tourbillon watches. They did not produce watches, they produce pieces of art.
That was the challenge. Develop an interior project trying to take inspiration from one of their models.
I choosed ART PIECE N.1, one of their most beautiful models, even if I had to admit that every piece is unique and amazing. Taking some elements of the watch itself and re-thinking the space with a main wall as a piece of art in terms of materials, this project had life in a "turbillon of feelings".
The final result is what you see in this set of images.
A compromise between classical elements and contemporary design in terms of material choiches. Opaque ans shiny, dark and light colours are the predominant themes of the project. A different perception of the space based on touch sensations, where the contrast between smooth and rough materials take their shapes.
Thanks to Angela and Mr. Pernsteiner. They gave me the possibility to express myself in a full unusula yacht project.
THE LIGHT SIDE - PG SKIES
Project based on a photography I shooted in a very small apartment in Rome. The main subject is the light. I focused on testing different moods at different hours of the day. All the great job was achieved with PG Skies images. Beautiful light and soft shadows are a predominat theme on this set of images.

AMA-LYA 70m is a project by Luca Catino Architect.

RAINY DAY - AtoZ
It was always raining, it always cold, it always cloudy. Sensations that came out once I came back from Paris long time ago. That's why I decided to create a moody CG scene. RAINY DA - AtoZ was a long research process on the lighting set up. I was looking for something to express a cloudy day and a sad feeeling. Everything was modeled as a unique piece, starting from reference images was a big challenge on modeling also. 26 images, one room.
Some old projects published on different Cg Blogs. Inspirations came from different amzing CG artists. One of my favourire artist is Peter Guthrie and all the images I realize for personal projects and commercial projects are made using his wonderful PG Hdr skies.
Set of chairs and armchairs. Every piece was modeled from skratch and used in different CG scene as per client needs.
