Hot Lab and Van der Valk team up to create interior design for new Pilot range

Premier Dutch yachtbuilder Van der Valk has announced an exciting cooperation with Italian yacht design company Hot Lab.

The Milan-based studio has created two sumptuous styles for the new Van der Valk Pilot series in turquoise and yellow that exude space, light and natural colours. 

“It is always an honour to design interiors for a new model from a successful yard like Van der Valk as you know the audience is anticipating something special,” comments Antonio Romano, partner and marketing director at Hot Lab.

“This has inspired us to create a gorgeous style for the Pilot that is meticulously designed and detailed throughout and where relaxation is a way of life.

The interior decor are wonderfully rich and at the same time contemporary, reflecting the rugged sophistication of this superb motoryacht.”

“We are delighted with this stimulating new marriage between premium Dutch yachtbuilding and Italian design flair,” confirms Van der Valk’s sales manager Yoeri Bijker.

“When you add a new range to your portfolio it is vital to offer an interior design that matches the ambition.

Hot Lab have devised a timeless look that is unfettered by the constraints of the moment, perfectly capturing the spirit we have in mind with the Pilot.” 

The renowned craftsmen at Van der Valk are relishing the opportunity to translate the rounded edges, precious leather details and elegant joinery shown on the renderings into reality.

The main materials used will be brushed oak, white birch and white glossy lacquered woods, white leather, ceramic white and chrome, added Enrico Lumini, partner and design director at Hot Lab.

Clients can choose between two distinctive colour pallets, both of which bring out the best of the Pilot’s design and each coming with its own proposed selection of loose furniture from the likes of Flou, De Padova, Paola Lenti and Calligaris. Lighting highlights include some delightful pieces by Foscarini, Busier + Punch, Cantalupi and Kartell.
