Product Design

Yachts are floating villas. They are exclusive retreats where to enjoy the greatest comfort against the backdrop of landscapes that only the sea can paint. Furniture design is the heart and soul of nautical projects contributing significantly to the quality of environments, the pleasantness of spaces, and structuring the experience of shipowners and their living environment. This is one of the main experiences that Officina Baglietto wishes to provide to young people. Through the course, students will acquire tools to design exclusive and valuable furniture lines that can stand out in the most complex and demanding contexts both in boating and architecture. From seating to lighting objects, the course will provide a broad overview of various furniture and design objects, inviting participants to define their own ideal collection, which can become a cult object for Baglietto’s network of customers, as well as for the many boat and boating enthusiasts.
