Mock-ups for the new ambitious project launched by Norwegian Cruise Line have been presented. We are involved in the realization of two more charming structures: the Spa Area and the Gym. Our artisan know-how and 4.0 competencies are fully in service of Fincantieri.
The official mock-up presentation is one of the most awaited and exciting moments for a cruise line interior designer. In fact, it is the perfect opportunity to show not only technical skills but also the human side of our work. Of course, it is also a test because every single detail of our samples have to pass the scrutiny of experienced and demanding customers. But it is also a cheerful occasion to share points of view and common passions with our long-term partners.
An excellent cruise project and a prestigious partnership
On the stage of the last meeting event our Spa Area and Gym mock-ups served as main characters for the audience of Norwegian Cruise Line managers. These models have been realized for one of the four Leonardo Project’s cruise ships pioneering the Norwegian cruise line and Fincantieri collaboration.
There has been great expectation in the air for Leonard project since 2017 when at the Sea Trade Cruise Global di Miami, Frank Del Rio, the Norwegian Cruise Line CEO, showed some ship renderings aimed at depicting a new era in the cruise world: breath-taking design and new integrated internal and external locations that fall in perfect harmony with the sea. The four ships, weighing 140 thousand gross tonnes and ready to welcome more than 3 thousand people each, will achieve the highest possible level of energy efficiency.
Metal, marble and wood for the cruise interiors
In our laboratories we have set up the evocative mock-ups corner which enables us to visualize the final outcome onboard the ship and at the same time to verify the exact correspondence of each detail with the high quality standards required in the working and assembling process of every single piece.
In order to produce the areas commissioned by Fincantieri we offer decades of experience of our wood artisans and the employment of modern technologies such as 4.0 industry and new internal metal working line, which allow us to carefully work every particular material avoiding risks of errors.
Gym and Thermal area: precious materials and pleasant marquetry
Wood, marble, composite metals, marquetry, mosaics, fillings, bright inserts, paintings and gildings bring to life suggestive environments perfectly adherent to the design project: the sober warmth of the Multipurpose studio and the Open area, the elegant functionality of the Spin room hall and the Treatment room, the delicate luxury of the Relaxation lounge, the solemnity of the Reception area and of the Entry stairway, the precious and joyful intimacy of the Hair salon and Pedicure and Manicure areas.
And then, the sensual material hug of the areas creating the Thermal experience (pool, sauna, ice room, salt room…), our flagship in this latest exciting adventure with Norwegian Cruise Line. The magnificent waterfall and the decorated wall in the Thermal lounge, with their play of light and delicate automation mechanisms, are two technical and beautiful masterpieces with a scenic effect equal to our engagement in the realization of every single precious detail.
