An Azimut-Benetti S6 Megayacht lands in New York's Times Square.
To commemorates the megayacht builders 50th anniversary an Azimut-Benetti have placed a 60-foot Azimut S6 yacht on the Times Square Plaza.
Parked for a limited period from June 6- June 11, 2019, the event is an extension of Design Pavilion in celebration of NYCxDESIGN, the city’s annual public commemoration of design.
Azimut’s history has always been marked by the creation of new archetypes that combine boats with the most innovative design and lifestyle solutions. The Azimut|Benetti Group has commissioned successful partnerships with top designers, from the yachting industry as well as other fields, believing the great value of challenging design principles is a force for innovation in style.
Azimut|Benetti Group recently collaborated with renowned names coming from luxury residential and artistic experiences, such as Elle Decor’s A-list member, Achille Salvagni; Vincenzo De Cotiis, whose work includes both architectural projects and artistic installations alike, represented in New York by Carpenters Workshop Gallery; and the New York-based European duo Enrico Bonetti/Dominic Kozerski, currently in charge of the new Pace Gallery project in New York.
The company looks to continue this mission of innovation into the future, by involving young talents in discovering the possibility to be future protagonists of the yachting industry. Azimut Benetti Group, with its brand Azimut Yachts, has launched a Design Competition with Arts Thread, the world’s leading network for new creatives, and is excited to announce the winner later this summer. This contest is the most recent chapter of a continuous activity which for over 10 years has seen the Company partnering with design schools and universities to develop a curriculum and strengthen the comprehension of yacht design.
